Plenty of stuff going on at the moment. Have recorded and mixed a new song with Amy Fry – Harvest Of The Stars. Swindon roadtrip for a couple of tunes at The Harcourt in Oxford hopefully this Sunday (4th Nov). Support gig to Auralcandy (Beehive, Swindon, 9pm, Friday 9th November). Then a set at the Richard Jefferies museum (Swindon, 6pm, 24th November). Then as part of a fundraiser at Commonweal School, Swindon, Sat evening, 1st December. Amy can’t make this one, so will use this as an excuse to try out plenty of new stuff. Then Savernake Community Centre (Swindon, Sunday 2nd December, 2-4pm). Will also be joined by Gary Nash on cajon/percussion for much of this.

Have six new songs and three instrumentals for solo album 2 written now. I’ve recorded and released one as a single SUBLIME RUINS. At a recent private party gig, I played all manner of nonsense but did manage to unveil a new song called ‘Butterfly’. Also had some more BBC 6 music airplay when Stuart Maconie played ‘Three Occultations’ on Freakzone a few weeks ago. Sid Smith did a lovely write up of VEIL in Prog magazine too. Huge thanks to all who have continued to play and review the album. Finally, here’s a new VEIL review in Expose.

Had a productive practice yesterday with Amy working on a new song ‘The Ink Dried’ and a rearangement for live performance of the Karda Estra piece ‘Dorothea’s Nightmusic.’ Have quite a lot of new songs, instrumentals and covers in the melting pot at the moment. You may be able to hear some of them at one of these two future Swindon gigs: Sunday 15th July, 2018 (The Beehive, Swindon Shuffle) and Thursday 13th September, 2018 (The Tuppenny).
Third solo show Savernake Street Hall, Swindon, Sunday 4th Febraury, 2018 (2-4pm). With David Chalk (guitar/vocals). Two hour gig featuring songs from ‘Veil’, songs by David and a selection of covers.
