My next single, Passing Me By has been voted on to Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net’s top ten Fresh Faves this week. Click on the pic and check out the review from Chris Bye and listen to the track…
What a weekend! Massive thanks to Oxjam Oxford Takeover for having my band and I open up the festival. We really enjoyed performing and we are so proud to be involved. They have surpassed their £8,000 target and raised a whopping £11,134.64 – how brilliant is that?! Thank you to everyone that came along to watch, I really appreciate the support. We then performed in the pouring rain under a Gazebo for the runners at the Oxford Half Marathon. Well done to everyone that braved the elements and finished the race, also thank you for smiling, waving and cheering at us along the way. Massive thanks to Martin at the Head Of The River for providing bacon sandwiches, tea and electricity for us – a warm welcome and brilliant hospitality. I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for taking their time to get involved this weekend.
Today is the digital launch of Local Hero which you can download NOW from iTunes, Amazon & Bandcamp so get on it!
Since the album is now finished, I figured I should probably start releasing some tracks for you, hey? How about some live shows? Well the first single from Reap What You Sow, is Local Hero and is available to download from 13th October and I am currently announcing live dates, with two in particular that should be of note…
On Saturday 12th October, I shall be doing the honors of opening up the Oxjam Oxford Take Over main event at the New Road Baptist Church. Now in its third year, and having raised over £10K for Oxfam, the Oxjam Oxford Takeover returns this October to bring together more local talent to help raise even more money for the Oxford based Charity. The festival literally takes over Oxford city centre, encompassing all of the city’s best established and eclectic venues. One wristband gives you access to all 7 venues and a plethora of local musical talent!
We shall then be up at the crack of dawn the following day… On Sunday 13th October, we will be performing at The Head Of The River for the Oxford Half Marathon runners. Between 10:15am and 11:45am, we will be cheering on the runners and entertaining the spectators at the roadside. This show will be the official launch of single Local Hero, so if you’re not too fragile from the night before, get yourself down!
