Adding strings to the new album I’m writing for Audio Network, to be released in July 2019. Loved recording these at Abbey Road Studios and very grateful to English Session Orchestra and in particular Caroline Dale for her beautiful cello solo on the title track “Varia”. Here’s a little snippet!
Had the great pleasure of working with the legendary (and really rather lovely) Mark Knopfler, alongside (the equally lovely) Guy Fletcher and Dave Milligan demo’ing songs for the upcoming production of “Local Hero – The Musical” which premiere’s at the Royal Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh in Spring 2019 and then moves to The Old Vic in London.
Recently guested with awesome guitarist Dominic Miller at The A-Trane jazz club in Berlin, singing “Shape Of My Heart”.
Just finishing off writing and recording my mini-album of dark, atmospheric ethic vocal tracks for Audio Network. Got to record cellist extraordinaire David Cohen at Abbey Road Studios ☺
Working with legendary producer Steve Brown (Elton John/Manic Street Preachers/Wham etc.) writing songs for a great new artist – a very different musical style from what I usually do so it’s a fun and unusual change! More details to follow shortly….

Very excited to be involved with this project! A soundtrack album written and produced by Chris Difford and Boo Hewerdine, which is currently being made into a play to be launched at next years Edinburgh festival, and also a radio adaptation.

Looking forward to being involved with this ongoing project next year 🙂
