I am also delighted to announce a headline Norwich show at The Bicycle Shop in December. I love playing this lovely venue and last time it was sold out, so I hope to see some more Norwich fans to share what should be a very special evening
New Music Video ‘Be Around’ filmed in Norfolk
My album ‘Slipstream’ was recently reissued by Proper Distribution and from it here’s a new video for the song ‘Be Around’ filmed this summer on the coast on one of our glorious warm days!
The video was made by hugely talented local film maker and photographer Claudia Taveira Photography. We’ve collaborated on a few projects this past year and she has filmed many lovely videos and shot photo shoots in the area. Norfolk provides many wonderful locations and here’s some of the other videos she’s filmed:

Festival Review & Live Festival Videos
Had a great time in August playing at Brownstock Festival in Essex and Weyfest in Surrey. The fun festival weekend was topped off by an excellent set by closing headliners Squeeze, bringing back fond memories from one of my first major gigs, supporting Glenn Tilbrook at Norwich Arts Centre!
Thanks to Festivals for All for this lovely review of my set at Brownstock
Here’s also some live videos from both festivals:
And thanks to Mick for filming this Tom Petty cover ‘I Won’t Back Down’
Norwich Sound and Vision This Week
This week Norwich Sound and Vision comes to Norwich bringing 3 days of live music in venues across the city and it’s well worth going along to. I've been very fortunate to have been involved, performing one of the showcase evenings at the Bicycle Shop and also playing at a PRS opening reception and believe it's a truly exciting and vibrant festival that really puts Norwich on the UK music map.
During the festival there's a great atmosphere and I've seen some amazing live performances at Norwich Arts Centre, Open, Olives, the Bicycle Shop and other key venues across the city. Not only is there the high quality of eclectic live music to see, during the day there’s also the conference itself. I've really enjoyed the excellent and relevant panel discussions from trusted and respected members of the music industry, some coming from around the world. I've really felt inspired and motivated after hearing what they've advised and had to say about the industry.
Importantly, the festival also provides a major opportunity for media, artists, labels, filmmakers, writers and anyone involved in a creative industry to all meet and network. I've made connections with bloggers and radio from attending the festival and as a musician and music lover Sound and Vision has become one of the essential dates in the music calendar.
