Before The Dawn OUT NOW

Before the Dawn

I’m very happy to announce that my new album, ‘Before the Dawn’ is out now! Get youre physical and/or digital copies from my Bandcamp and website by following this link:

Everyone who pre-ordered the album, your digital copies should have been sent to you via email and the physicals will begin shipping this afternoon.

It’s been an incredible few months working on this record and I hope you all like it. I will be celebrating the release by performing tonight at the Spiritual Caipirinha Bar with the incredible Joe Corbin. Come party, drink caprihinias and nab yourself a new record later.

When you purchase music through Bandcamp you receive a better audio format and it puts more money into the pocket of the artist and less into the ‘industry’, we receive nearly 100% of profit rather than the measly amount you get from iTunes, Spotify or anywhere else.

For example, the artist receives roughly 60p from an album sale through iTunes and little more than 0.006p from a spotify stream.

So if you’re planning on purchasing my record today, please do so through Bandcamp, we’d really appretiate the support and it will help us to continue doing what we love.

The Kitchen Tapes Vol. 1 will be released on 1st February 2016 followed by The Kitchen Tapes Vol. 2 on the 1st March 2016.

Both of these EPs were recorded live in a few hours and showcase something a little bit different from me stylistically. Both engineered, mixed and mastered by James Le Huray. These releases will only be available from Bandcamp on digital format.

Happy New Year

What a year, I can’t believe we are on the brink of 2016 already.

It’s been a busy year for us, releasing two albums (which are available at, recording two more EPs, a music video for my blues chart #1 single, our first UK tour, close to 90 shows, incredible festivals in the UK and home in the Channel Islands, I played in Alderney for the first time since I was 16, played shows in Berlin and met more amazing musicians, bands and lovely people than I can count.

I would like to thank everyone that has supported the band and myself over this past year, I could not have done all of this without you. Have a great night and a happy New Year full of dirty, sexy, rhythm and blues.

My first show of 2016 is at T.Chances on 2nd January for a full day of incredible music courtesy of Riff Taff Promotions.
