Hey folks! I'm a London-boy who's spent the past 2 years in Nashville, writing and recording my first album. The first single "Lighting Strikes" is a murder ballad that I wrote in the middle of a thunderstorm in Tennessee and it's going to be coming out on November 7th.
I'm going to be traveling up and down the UK from the 1-31st of October playing in people's living rooms, around fires, in gardens, attics and cellars. I'm thrilled to be abIe to sing and tell stories in a cozy, intimate environment. If you'd be interested in booking me for a house concert, I'd love to hear from you!
