Manchester show in remembrance of Steve Lloyd.

Hello all,

I’m playing a show with Badly Drawn Boy, Jo Rose, John Ainsworth and The Bear Around Your Neck at The Roadhouse Manchester on Saturday 12th July. All the proceeds will go to The Christie in remembrance of our good friend Steve Lloyd who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Steve co-owned The Roadhouse and did the front of house sound for me and the Slowdown band across my first album, then for me at numerous shows in the years following. He was a good man, and looked after me and the Slowdowns when we were all young musicians. He’ll be very much missed among the music community in Manchester.

Come and enjoy an evening of excellent music in his honour!

Tickets are available HERE

Hello everybody, and a Happy New Year.

I’ve been busying myself getting some new music together for a solo EP. Things are starting to take shape nicely, and so I thought I might share this recording with you. It’s not totally finished yet, but definitely in enough shape for your fine, discerning ears. Hope you enjoy it!

In other news, I’m playing at the fourth birthday party of Manchester’s Sound Control venue with a full band on Monday 20th January. There are some tickets available still, so head over to their website now to pick some up.

There’s a couple of tickets left for my solo show at Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre as well. Hurry along, good people of Cheltenham!

I’ll be announcing more dates and musical plans soon. Can’t wait to play for you all again.

Take care,

2014 Shows

Hello folks,

Just a quick note to let you know that my first two live shows of 2014 have been confirmed.

First up is a full band show on Monday 20th January at Sound Control in Manchester. Tickets are available now, and you can pick them up HERE.

A little bit further along the way I’ll be playing at Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre on Thursday 20th March. Tickets for that are also on sale now, and you can pick those up at the Everyman Theatre’s site.

Obviously I’ll be booking a few more in pretty soon - keep your peepers peeled for them!

When the crooked old sun
Comes burning up your back wall.
I heave my rope toward the shore,
Steer the rudder once more.

When the morning is sole and same,
In the morning I’ll call your name.
Punctuate that stormy dream,
The ascending arc of warmth is me.

Stretching out along the hillside,
Burning hot against your skin.
Lonely ghost haunting the coastline,
Has your face fallen again?

I’m standing with you, side by side.
The sweetest wine will meet my seared kiss,
Take your love and I will shield it.
I’m standing with you, side by side.
You’re pouring scorn, scorn, scorn,
Your sorrow eyes, soft and sore.
I’m sending sweet stings to your door,
From those wild places.

Well god damn, the night!
Say, can you dig that moonlight?
In the babbling brook we shook, we conspired,
Let the cool water quell my desire.

‘Til that sun found us again,
Burning hot against our skin.
Lonely shadow on the coastline,
I do believe she is my twin.

London and Manchester dates for October.

Hello folks!

Off the back of next week’s two sold out shows in Manchester, I’m very pleased to let you know that I’ll be playing in London and again in Manchester this October. First is a solo set at London’s St Pancras Old Church on Wednesday 2nd October, and then on Friday 4th October I’ll be playing at The Deaf Institute in Manchester.

Tickets are available now from alt-tickets.co.uk. To avoid disappointment, do hurry picking them up!

Looking forward to seeing all of your lovely faces.

Manchester Supports

Hello folks,

I’ve just confirmed the supports for my two solo shows at The International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester on the 11th and 12th May, thought I’d give y'all the heads up.

On the Saturday show I’m going to be joined by my good friends Hannah and Lois, then on the Sunday Little Sparrow and Alex Cartwright will be opening up.

They’re all really great, so do make sure that you get down early.

Look forward to seeing your lovely faces!
