Guardian Review & Album Launch Tomorrow Night Sat 4th!

The album is finally out there in the world! Its been wonderful to see people connect with it after all this time making it and your feedback and messages have really touched me. Thank you! I was also very excited to read a lovely of the ‘Love Of Too Much Living’ in the Guardian today:

” an intriguing, compelling solo set …a singer-songwriter who is notable both for the quality of his thoughtful, gently compelling vocals and his instrumental work, has an easy, soulful style, and the ability to switch to a relaxed falsetto or throw in an unexpected unaccompanied song such as the the personal and self-critical 28 Years Old. He plays excellent finger-style guitar with occasional jazz influences, and provides sturdy piano work on the pained and thoughtful Air at the Top. A man to watch, whatever he calls himself..”

The big news now is the ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY TOMORROW NIGHT!! SATURDAY 4TH OCTOBER! It’s going to be a really special night and it would mean a lot to me if you could be there to share it. Support comes from Wilf Merttens, Alabaster DePlume, FaceOmeter & Samantha Whates. Get your tickets in advance to make sure you can make it!

Tomorrow night is going to be special and then i plan to take all that energy out on the tour which starts next monday 6th October at the Prince Albert in Stroud. Hope to see you at the launch tomorrow or out on the road!
