Thank you for visiting my website.
My debut album Waters Of March came out last Summer and I am so grateful to everyone who has already bought a copy and for all the lovely comments I have received, it really means so much so thank you. If you haven’t bought a copy yet, then simply click on the drop down menu and select Shop page. Alternatively, catch me at a gig and purchase a signed copy directly from me.
The last few years have been manic to say the least, so this year I’ve decided to take a step back to spend some quality time with my boys as they grow up so fast. That said, I am in the process of writing new songs for my second album and am learning the Piano. I also have some lovely shows coming up for you which you can check out on my Live Shows page.
Follow me on social media and subscribe to my mailing list on my Contact page to receive news and keep up to date with my performances, music videos and collaborations.
Hopefully see you at a live show soon.
