Appearance at King’s Fest, King’s Arms in Salford, on Sept 18th

I’ve been confirmed for this show. Tickets £15 for a three day festival of music and comedy. The King’s Arms is owned and run by Paul Heaton, of The Housemartins and The Beautiful South. It’s my third time playing this festival – the first time was as singer with Adventures of Salvador – and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m on in the snug, downstairs, at 3:30.



Recording news

I’ve been doing some work with a composer, Phil Bennetts, over the past few months, who has been helping me with my songwriting and offering valuable insights on the recording process. I’ve been in the studio several times both with backinhumanform and Adventures of Salvador, but the work with Phil has brought a fresh perspective to it all.

I plan to go back into the studio later this year to record three songs, all of which you’ve heard live in one form or another over the past year. These are Half-light, Shadows, and a third song which I’m currently calling The Anxiety Song, or possibly Auld Lanxiety. It’s not a very cheerful title though is it.
