My new album HEY MATHEMATICIAN is out on CD/digital on 21st August so we are going to have a night at Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston, NE London a few days afterwards to celebrate. Me and Sarah McCaig will be playing two sets of the album songs plus new material and the great, acerbic singer-songwriter Louis Brennan will be opening the night. In between the live music we will have decent breaks and DJ Kunal will be spinning everything from folk to rock. It's gonna be a cool, relaxed night and I'd love you to be there.
If you ordered launch tickets as part of your pledge then your names will be on the door, if not and you would like to come please get an advance ticket early if you want to come as they are already very limited and it is a small venue.
Doors: 7:30pm / Entry - £5 on the door and in advance from www.wegottickets.com/event/401137
Servant Jazz Quarters, 10a Bradbury Street, London N16 8JN
All the best and I hope to see you guys there

It's been a crazy few weeks, THANKYOU to all the good people we've met and friends we've seen again - all those who came out to the gigs, booked us and everybody who helped in any way throughout Belgium, Holland and Germany - we will see you again soon ! Thankyou also to my beautiful girl Sarah McCaig, it's not easy getting up on stage every night for 3 weeks and she was a trooper as always.

This is a song about gratitude, as soon as I had the guitar part I knew what the song was going to be about but I wanted to try and make it uplifting rather than morbid.

Pittburgh It Is
This song seems to be escaping from any kind of bonds of secrecy by itself so I thought it's probably time to set it free, pre-release, pre-album...The cello is played by the inimitable Anna Scott of Mozzy Green.
This song came about whilst I was travelling in America, on the way from New York to Nashville my Greyhound bus was stopped in Pittsburgh by bad weather around the Appalchian Mountains along with around 10 other buses. So hundreds of us were holed up in Pittsburgh bus station for over 24 hours, for some it was more. The bus station is fairly small and the weather was extremely bad with heavy snow and high winds, it seemed to fit Pittsburgh's bleak industrial landscape and turn it completely magical, at least for this wide-eyed traveller....so me and a few of the other people took a walk in the snow to get out of the crowds and find a bar....

Im pleased to say Ive found 2 excellent musicians to work with into 2011: Rory Clarke on drums and Rolfin Nyhus on bass. We’re working good and hard, avoiding the fully primed traps of mediocrity and blind mimicry to start building a powerful and intricate sound around our pick of the songs Ive written. Im loving every minute.
As a result my gigging schedule will be slowing down considerably to rehearse, write and record; we’ll aim to bring you some sounds and events next year.
