You'll see below a handful of images collected to my scrapbook during the writing of A Coat Worth Wearing. If you fancy signing up to my mailing list I'll send you, as a welcome, a more comprehensive account of the different material that I found myself drawing from as the songs for this record evolved.

Hello. Thanks for visiting.

Hopefully, you should be able to find the necessary basic information on this site about my recordings and live work. If you want to know more please use the contact details provided. Alternatively, try the Hudson Records pages, or just track me down on social media.

Alongside the activities presented here, I am involved in a wider range of musical and music-related work. I'm always interested to hear about new projects, whether live or studio based, as well as conferences and other public speaking engagements for which I might be suited.

Please fire away.


“Deeply felt, brooding songs rich in imagery.”
– The Guardian

“Songs so subtle and well-crafted that you can’t help but be drawn in.”
– Drowned in Sound
