A Promise Is All It Was – live, acoustic, in the snow…


As the snow finally came down on Saturday night, I grabbed all my candles, my camera and tripod, my scarf, two tshirts, a jumper, a heavy coat, 2 pairs of trousers and headed out into the snow.

I came back for my guitar shortly after too.

And more candles. Then I tried to take a lamp out and severely cut a finger on my right hand and thought I’d screwed the whole thing up.

Taped up and ready to go I went back in to the garden and recorded this video of A Promise Is All It Was. I hope you like it. I enjoyed it as the snow came down, regardless of my cold fingers and my guitar not wanting to stay in tune. It was cold and lovely.

It’s been a long time since I played live but while finishing the album I’ve also been putting together a live show.

And on October 15th we will be playing our debut live show at the Scala at Wah Wah Live. We’re on alongside the Colman Brothers, Boxettes, Stac and Blue Daisy, Greg Wilson, Gilles Peterson and loads more.

A little musical treat…

Every year I’m lucky enough to get a trip out to Norway to play records. I massively love it there. Bergen in our destination and between the sea, fjords and mountains I have everything I love. Plus we always get lucky with the weather.

Here is a video recorded by a fjord last year. The track is I have Come To You – off my last album. And the lovely Stac is singing it with me. Enjoy.
