The Next Days

Hello all

Hope the summer is heating you up nicely

A few developments here to note, firstly the Silver Meadows album release – the record has been out a couple of months now and I’d just like to say a huge thanks to those people who have bought it, it means a lot and its much appreciated.

If you haven’t bought it yet here are some links. It really is quite the most considered and conceptually rewarding record I’ve made, and it sounds like a million dollars worth of production went into it [hooray for David Marsden’s sublime talent!]. So often after albums are put out they fade in the eyes of the auteur. Not this one, I still love it

Here are some links

The album has had great reviews from the Irish Times to the Daily Mirror, here’s a link

The Silver Meadows Stage Play Musical is moving on with re writes and re thinking on characters, and the usual booing and growing of ideas, we will be doing a Kickstarter Campaign at some point. Liverpool writer Ian Salmon and I are in a continued state of reimagining and dialogue adjustments, Ian is diligantly expanding themes and shaping narrative .  Its all pretty exciting and I’ll update more news as we have it.

August is  a quiet month for gigs – hence my August is being spent at home recording the next album, a collection of songs inspired by the Midlands, and being back in Worcestershire. I’ve taken inspiration from place names and past events and its been a most cathartic  writing process. I’m aiming to release it next year, I’ll post a few demoes on Soundcloud as we go.

Rob and I have a few gigs in September, I hope to see some of you ,
