30 day challenge...this shit is HARD!

Right peeps.  Honesty is always my best fucking policy.  

I FUCKED IT!  I missed my deadline.  My 30 days elapsed on Tuesday and I have 7 videos to go...SOOOOO what do we do when we miss the mark?  We keep going!

30 Day Video Challenge!!! (Starts 15th August!)

I missed my Monday Blog!  OOPS! 

This week has been a busy one!  First, I flew back to Scotland on Monday afternoon for a hospital appointment (nothing serious!).  It was SO good to get home, even just for a couple of days.  Just a wee breather.

Berlin is amazing.  I do love it here but moving to a foreign country to live and work as a freelance musician is not straight forward.  AT ALL.  Let's ignore the language barrier for a second, I am just finding out about the scene here, how things are done and where…Read more

Only two weeks left to pre-order my newest E.P. Opia!  Why not have a listen to it IN FULL over at Louder Than War, then pop along to Bandcamp and grab your copy!

So much has been going on in my life recently, all good and all moving forward but to be really honest, all fucking terrifying.  Taking things in my stride has never been my default setting.  The past two years have really shook things for me and anxiety, ANXIETY argh I fucking hate her!!  But she rips my stomach open in the middle of…Read more
Amazing radio

"The Fall" from Opia tipped on Shell Zenner's Amazing Radio show!


How are all you lovely folks doing?!  

I am so chuffed to tell you that "The Fall", the opening track from my upcoming E.P. Opia, was 'tipped' by Dave from Even the Stars on Shell Zenner's Amazing Radio show!!

Massive thank you for playing my track.  It was so fucking cool to hear my song and people talking about me on the radio.  I was dancing about my hotel room like a nutter!

It's great when hard works pays off...still a lot more work to do but that's what it is all about people!

You can listen…
