A hectic few months of live playing - after finishing the Little Shop of Horrors run at the Courtyard, I've been busy performing widely with my own trio (highlights of which have included the Wales Millennium Centre and Newcastle-under-Lyme jazz weekend), George Montague at Cheltenham Jazz Festival, ACP Festival and Gloucester food festival in addition to various dates with JC Jazz, VIP and of course 'SONGS FROM THE 13TH HOUR - LIVE'. Our recent dates at Stratford Jazz and Ray's Jazz at Foyles will probably conclude promotion of this project as the focus now draws towards the third studio release. We've had some great sessions so far and hope to begin mastering the album properly around November. All being well, I'm hopeful of an early 2015 release which will include the new website. However, I will be focusing more upon media coverage, youtube videos and radio airplay just for the time being rather than live dates due to the costs and effectiveness of recent touring. Additionally, returning to Uni for post-grad research study next year will absorb most of my budget! It doesn't help that I now know what a £200 dental filling looks like too :/ Anyway, moving on... upcoming dates for 2013 include further work with my own trio plus JC Jazz and VIP. Gang show 2014 dates have also been added to the live dates page...
