New EP Release Date

I’m happy to announce (at last!) that the release date for my new EP has been set for 16th June 2014. The EP is entitled “Plymouth Tapes, Vol. 3” and completes the trilogy of “Plymouth Tapes” EPs.

The idea behind the Plymouth Tapes EPs was to chart the journey over the course of just over a year. When I finished working with my previous band (Syruss) I chose to continue as a solo artist for a while. During that period I recorded and released my first EP “Plymouth Tapes, Vol. 1”. That EP was very stripped down with just me and an acoustic guitar but it accurately captured where I was and what I was doing at the time. Read More

It’s here folks – the Plymouth Blues Society second annual event is coming! After last years sell out event this one is sure to be even more popular – tickets are on sale now so be sure to grab yours before they’re all gone. Full ticket details can be found in the previous post. Read More
