New Album "ALMOST NAKED" Now Available on BANDCAMP & iTUNES

I am really happy to announce my new album "Almost Naked" is here!

Over the last year I have been recording song ideas on my ukulele into my phone and including the odd uke demo on my new releases.
Often I liked those demos as much, if not more, than the finished song.

So with this release I took 16 demos, some serious, some silly, some fun, all of which were recorded on my phone and, in some cases, added some extra instruments and in some cases left them naked.

In the case of "Take This Shortcut With Me" I had recorded some subway drumming on my phone, in New York's Union Sq station, I looped that and played the song, into my phone, of course, over the top of it.

The result, I hope, is a rough and ready, joyful and engaging experience.

Stream it & buy it on BANDCAMP
Sample it & but it on iTUNES

Spotify, Google Play, Amazon etc. COMING SOON!

Parts 1 & 2 of ALL NEW Double Album "Wake Up, It's Not Over" NOW Available EVERYWHERE

My new album "Wake Up, It's Not Over" has arrived in two awesome parts!

Why two parts I hear you cry?

Well, after just one weekend in Massachusetts with the awesome Jay Mayo, I had enough content for one great album.

Then, checking at home, I almost had enough songs for a whole second album and, indeed, after a few more recordings, I did!

All the songs are on a similar theme and so it made sense to package them all together but, also, I wanted the weekend of work Jay and I did to stand out alone, as it has a different sound to the songs I did myself at home. So, two parts, I thought, that works.

Both parts are available, in their entirety, to stream and buy on Bandcamp:
Part One
Part Two

However, because Part One had some cover songs on it, when I uploaded the albums to Spotify, iTunes etc. I removed the cover songs and pushed the two parts together into one album.
This hybrid album is available for streaming and/or purchase on:
Google Play
and wherever music is found

Please please please don't forget to rate, review and share the albums wherever and whenever possible!! THANKS!
