This was taken right before we took to the stage on Friday 18th April 2014 at The Haberdashery in Crouch End, London. We hadn’t performed in a while (May 2013) and we were performing a totally new set including some new songs that I could not be more proud of (more of that to follow). I was tweeted by a member of the audience that “he almost cried” during my performance. This may be the best compliment I’ve received!
I am a big, big fan of Mr. Xavier Dolan. His movies truly stand out (I thoroughly recommend that you see his sublime new movie TOM AT THE FARM) and here is a music video he directed for Indochine’s COLLEGE BOY. The video was seen as pretty controversial but often work that is thought provoking and challenging has this effect!

I’ve been spending quite some time working on new songs (see pictorial proof!) which I can’t wait for you to hear.

Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of…
This year we have been very busy as we’ve recorded a few live music videos for youtube. On a very, very, very cold afternoon (it was so cold I could see my breath as I sang) myself, my guitarist Pablo and my very talented ladies Magda and Chenai headed to Hackney to film a couple live videos for my “2 weeks 2 videos” series. We filmed the videos at the really spacious warehouse filled with props called Dalston Heights. So here is the first video. A special version of my song “Break”. Enjoy and please share with your people x
Firstly Tumblr; let me apologise for my absence. I have neglected this wonderful site and for that I am truly sorry. So let’s get you up to speed shall we?
Not too long ago I recorded a cover of Ray Charles “Drown In My Own Tears” for Dr. G Photography. We filmed it in my Aunt Vilma’s living room one very cold, misty December evening. Hope you enjoy this and if you do please share it with your people x
