New Limited Physical Releases of 'Roots' and 'No Distance Too Far' Including Deluxe Edition

I have been very busy over the summer redesigning and hand making a limited run of my two current albums, 'No Distance Too Far' and 'Roots'. Each CD case has been hand made by myself using recycled materials, time, and care. This is a special moment in my career as it is the first time that I am physically releasing 'Roots'. On top of that, there is also a special Deluxe Edition! This contains both of my albums in a special dual digipack case.

However, this run of CD releases are on a limited run with:

  • 50 copies of 'No Distance Too Far'
  • 50 copies of 'Roots'
  • 30 copies of the Deluxe edition - containing both albums!

Each album is numbered so that you can be sure you have received a version from this limited run.

These CDs will be available at my live performances initially with online availability arriving soon so make sure that you come along to a show to secure your copy!

Best wishes,

Silent Strategies in the South West #2

Silent Strategies is back this March with another great selection of the diverse and talented ambient, spoken, and instrumental performers that the South West has to offer. This month I will be performing a special solo set with new material!  The incredibly talented Joseph Vincent will be performing with his live solo violin act. Finally the up and coming spoken word artist Samuel Aaron will  be performing, showcasing his writing talents. This night promises to continue the showcase of emerging talents who perform in genres that are not widely promoted or publicised.

With free entry, great drinks, and fantastic atmosphere, this is not a night to miss. So come down to the St James Wine Vaults in Bath to share in this live experience.

Sunday 19th March

6-9pm

Silent Strategies in the South West

I am happy to announce that I have set up my own evening of live ambient and instrumental music called 'Silent Strategies in the South West'!

This night is sure to be fantastic event promoting the amazing instrumental and ambient talent that the South West has to offer. To launch our first night in Bath (the only night of it's kind) I will be performing alongside two great musicians, Kevin Buckland, and Low-lying Clouds. I will be performing new, previously unheard material from the new album and more.

To make this night even better, it is completely free and in a fantastic venue in the centre of Bath just behind the Royal Crescent.

It would be fantastic to see you come and show support to two genres that do not receive much attention in the area. If you would like to come to this night of relaxing and innovative music, please confirm on the event page below. I look forward to seeing you there!

Tour Diary Days 4 & 5

Being a busy two days starting with a lunchtime concert at Le Caudan Waterfront, a great response was given to the music with spectators coming to discuss influence and find out more about the tour. Being able to play an old double bass through a bridge microphone was a pleasure with the warm sounds resonating through the hall.

Straight after the show we had to give an interview to the national paper about the music, my solo projects, influences and the future of the tour and band. This was again a great experience alongside our radio appearances but I wish I spoke french so i could understand and speak easier in Mauritius.

Friday evening we played Big Willies in the coastal area of Tamarin. Again a great response from the 60 plus crowd who attended. The venue has asked us back upon our next return to Mauritius where we will launch our album.

On Day 5 of the tour we awoke to bad news as our booked gig in the evening was cancelled due to logistical reasons. However spirits were kept high with an on the spot performance at Le Caudan Waterfront where we performed to around 80 people and were recorded for the MBC (Mauritian National Television).

The biggest news however was that our new manager Olivier organised for us to close the show after national music sensation Zulu at the Ciber City. This was a short 25 minute set to promote the rest of our tour with press and Mauritian industry personnel present. It was a pleasure to play.

Now for four days of rest before the tour kicks back off again. Time to go to the beach!
