I’m pleased to announce that myself and the band are back at Night & Day Cafe on Monday 21st July supporting the fabulous Daniel Pearson.
It’ll be one of our last shows until the autumn when I’ll be putting out some new releases and heading back out onto the live circuit, so it’d be great to see as many people down as possible and to share a sneak preview into some of the material we’ve begun working on in the studio.
As ever, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to get you hands on one of a limited number of cheap tickets for this event.

January always feels like the longest month of the year after the excitement of the Christmas period, so it’s great to be in February now and getting rolling again with some live shows!
Far from being in hibernation the past few weeks, myself and the band have been busy working on new material and prepping for our upcoming gigs. We’ll be kicking things off next week with a performance at The Eagle Inn in Salford, followed by a massive show on the 22nd at the recently threatened Night & Day Cafe, supporting Two Weeks Running. The lads will be launching their new single ‘Holy Ghost’, which has already been picked up by XFM’s John Kennedy, and it’s sure to be a great night.
For now, I’ll leave you with my own ‘Holy Ghost’ which featured on my debut release Little Blue…

What with having just played the Oxjam Manchester thankyou party (which this year raised over £6000!), November was already drawing to a close on a high note for myself.
To top it all off though, the track I’m Altered, which is not only on my Bootleg Sessions EP but also features on the Oxjam Manchester Takeover album, was played on last nights BBC Introducing in Manchester radio show!
You can check out the full programme here and it includes links to the new BBC Playlister so you can listen to myself and all the other acts whenever and wherever.
So here’s to the last month and let the countdown to christmas begin!

My favourite time of year is upon us, HALLOWEEN!!! I love, love, love it. I don’t know whether it’s the dressing up or the leaves turning such a pretty colour or the countless amounts of sweets you consume but it’s definitely the highlight of my year. To round this Halloween up I’m playing a gig in the wonderful Castle Hotel on Oldham Street, Northern Quarter on the 3rd of November, supporting the fantastic Jazz Morley, tickets are £7 Advance/£8 On the Door.
In other good news my music video ‘Rita’ has reached over 2000 views, YAY! In order to thank you all so much for your constant support, here’s a picture of me as a Smurf, Circa Halloween 2008, enjoy!

The festival season may be over officially but there’s been no shortage of gigs for myself of late! I supported the fantastic Jay Brannan at Night & Day Cafe as well as performing at a whole host of other great nights including Salford Music Festival which, as ever, was doing a brilliant job highlighting some of the best music around Manchester and beyond.
There’s no time to rest just yet however as myself and the band will be out making an appearance for Oxjam this weekend coming, headling at Matt & Phreds on Sunday the 6th October. It’d be great to see you all down there and I hope to be making some announcements regarding some new releases in the not too distant future…

It’s been a great week following on from my appearence on BBC Introducing In Manchester, having had the pleasure of supporting the fabulously talented Sam Bradley. Myself and Alex and Jonny from the band performed a stripped back set of some old and new material and it was fantastic to speak to all who came- as well as being able to sit back and Sam’s set afterwards!
Tonight I’m back at Night & Day Cafe to play one of the best new music nights in Manchester- The Big Slice. It’s shaping up to be a brilliant night so head down to the Northern Quarter tonight to get your fill of some top acts! Doors are at half 7 with my set on around 9pm.

So, for the past 5 weeks BBC Introducing Manchester have been kindly playing ‘Go Your Way’ nearly every week on their show on a Saturday night. Last night I was actually on the show live as their session guest where I played my next single ‘Play Pretend’ and had a little chat with the legend herself Michelle Hussey. It was such a fantastic experience and I had such a laugh, I can’t wait to go back!
Have a cheeky listen here…
In all of the glitz and the glam of radio life I forgot to take any pictures, but I got to keep my security pass….
In other news, I’m supporting Sam Bradley this coming Tuesday 23rd of July in Night and Day Cafe, Manchester. Tickets are £7 on the door or contact myself to get on the cheaper £5 list, it’s gonna be a good un’.
