Calgary came spinning…

Calgary came spinning our jet-swelled ankles, late yesterday. We’ve had a heavy good sleep in a little motel. Luke can’t get over how sweet Canadians are. It’s overwhelming him.

Tonight I shall be supporting Jenn Grant at Calgary Festival hall. I can’t wait to hear her and her band.
And so looking forward to finally singing.

Thank you Universe for making this trip across the atlantic a little more smooth (and actually existent) than the last.

Flew across the Atlantic…

Flew across the Atlantic. Rode a train, by accident, all the way to Brighton Beach – the end of the line – and enjoyed it thoroughly. Luke (my dear brother who is joining as intern tour manager) had his first taco and enjoyed a little butter in his black coffee.

We have reached Toronto but, at the mercy of a stormy mother, our flight to Edmonton has been cancelled.

I will, sadly, not be supporting Jenn Grant tonight at Rec Rooms.

Enjoy it.

Calgary – we WILL see you tomorrow.

6 years ago today the war in Syria began.

Thanks to a mail out from UNHCR I now know the war in Syria began, six years ago today. There is lots we can do to help bring some relief to those suffering the affects of the ongoing.

One way is by buying this lovely Album from Brain Fog records:

War is such a heavy word. I find it hard to feel it’s true weight in this comfortable and fortunate existence. Hopefully this small post brings a sliver of silver to the cloud that so many are under.

Mixing in Berlin…

The ears will be working hard over the next few weeks as I return to Berlin to work on the new album mixes with Axel Reinemer at Jazzanova Studio.

I’ve decided to release the new record early 2018. Patience.

The wonderful band: Max Andrzejewski – Drums, Paul Santner – Guitar, Declan Forde – Piano, James Banner – Double Bass

Last night’s gig at The Mackintosh Church

Last night’s gig at The Mackintosh Church felt very good. A good delivery and a beautiful reception, in my eyes. Thanks to all who filled the seats with face and form, who filled the air with clapping hands, stomping feet and the sweetness of silence.



Thank you to my beautiful band: Jennifer Austin, Louis Abbott, Leo Forde & Joe Rattray.
Thanks Celtic Connections

Tonight at 10pm you will be able to watch the Opening Concert from last week on BBC 2 featuring a song shared between Adam Holmes And The Embers & I as well as many more musical treats.
