In addition to the three album launch gigs in December, I'll be touring May 1-10 2019. Click on my gig page for more details. Tickets for most of the those gigs are available already. I'm also booked for a few festivals next summer, to be announced soon! The band sounds amazing and I can't wait to take them on the road. The gigs are going to be very special indeed.

In the mean time, keep an eye on my social media pages - I'll be on the TV and radio quite a few times in the next week!

Thanks for buying the album - I'd love to know what you think of it.


Debut Solo Album - The Unfinished Violin 

I'm very excited to announce my first solo album The Unfinished Violin is coming out on 21.09.18 on Island Records!


Inspired by my violin, carved but never finished by Richard Howard in 1915, I've made an album of instrumental music inspired by the Great War.

I'm enormously proud of it, and I hope you'll love it. You can pre-order it now and listen to track one, here.

Please spread the word, tell your friends and I can't wait to hear what you think of it.
