Hello everyone and Happy New Year! 2014 was a fantastic year for me; I made big leaps forward in my music career as well as releasing my debut album 'High Rise'. I'm glad to say that 2015 is shaping up to be even better! Reviews of 'High Rise' are due out within the next few months from popular folk magazines 'The Living Tradition' and 'Fiddle On' as well as online folk enthusiasts 'Bright Young Folk' and popular internet radio station 'Folk Radio UK'. I hope this will encourage interest from other Folk enthusiasts and see further coverage in the press throughout 2015. I have already started live performances of 'High Rise' in Cardiff and the surrounding areas (where I currently reside), and will be looking to take it further around the UK. If possible I would like to bring an album tour home to Scotland in August, but this is dependant on funding. Keep an eye on the 'Gigs' page of the website for the latest gigs.
I am happy to announce that spring will see me touring the UK with show, 'Hiraeth'. The show has recently toured Wales to great success and as been nominated for 'Best Production' at the Wales Theatre Awards. We will be hitting London in March following by the rest of the UK in April through to June. With more plans in the works theres lots to be excited about. Once again, keep an eye on the 'Gigs' page for more information.
As I'm sure many of you are aware my YouTube channel has lain dormant for the majority of 2014. In an effort to work on other aspects of my career I have not had the time to create my videos, however in 2015 I wish to change this and start creating again. After all YouTube started things off for me and ultimately I wouldn't be here if it weren't for those early projects and the people who supported them. In short you'll see me "fLogging" again soon, and hopefully some new ideas will come to life too.
