Well, it's dragging on is this old pandemic isn't it?! I think back in March I really hoped that it would 'blow over' quickly and we'd be back to normal by now. But sadly it looks like we've got to buckle up and stay on this ride for a fair while. I really hope you're...

Hi everyone! Hope you're managing to keep well, safe and relatively sane in these crazy times. Seeing as I've got quite a lot of extra time at the moment, I've started a new YouTube channel called 'Frailing at life' (see what I did there!) specifically for beginners' t...

It's been AGES since I updated the news section here, and I wanted to tell you all about the big birthday gig we've got coming up in May back at the lovely Dorothy Pax where we had our EP launch, and all the lovely festivals and events planned for the summer. But I wai...

I'm lucky that the last couple of months have been filled with both of these things! I've played some really lovely gigs with some really lovely friends. At the start of June I did a mini tour with A Different Thread (Robert and Alicia, pictured) which saw us play in B...

It's been a tough old start to 2019 to be honest, involving some heartbreak, grief and frustration. But, thank goodness for the music! I've played some lovely gigs in the past few weeks, including a Sofar Sounds gig in Sheffield, a support slot for the wonderful Ryan F...

Well, 2018 has been an AMAZING year. I only really started performing last year, and I never dreamed that during this year I would release an EP, perform at the 100 Club, be on the radio (a few times!), and be selected by the AMA UK to represent them at both Red Rooste...

Yes, that's a life-size poster of me! I nearly fainted when I got to the Long Road festival and saw it outside the Honky Tonk bar! I was so honoured to be selected again by the Americana Music Association UK to play the Front Porch stage at the first ever Long Road. We...
