MUCH EXCITEMENT My new solid-body uke. (Actually a modified/upgraded Epiphone Mandobird) Bit saucy. New Pickup from Almuse.
Tonight’s Family label extravaganza was spectacular! And just when you think you can’t love a band any more than you already do, they ask you to perform onstage with them in one of the coolest venues in the city! Thank you Pearl and the Beard!! We performed our version of Katy Perry’s Firework, I hope somebody somewhere has photos/videos?! Although, there will always be the one we made earlier!… http://youtu.be/XOMWHPvNKxc
Many thanks to all the lovely people in the audience, and the well-wishers who came to say hello! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! I’m now branded with family label - my new tat! You like?
P.S. No, it isn’t permanent. :P
Just back from Indaba Live At The Loft. Recorded a little live performance video of one of my songs! Big shiny face.

I had a musical visit from my old and good friend Liam Blake the other day, and we recorded this little video for you guys. We also recorded an original song that we wrote together many moons ago, which will soon be uploaded to the Liam Blake channel http://www.youtube.com/user/LiamBlakeMusic
I must give Liam kudos for his mad guitar skills and his spectacular wolf & moon t-shirt. We both had our albums released in the same week back in July. Do give his stuff a listen, he’s ridiculously talented! He’s now touring the UK.
Our albums are both available on iTunes!
This is the first in a series of duets that I will be uploading in the coming months. All with amazing musicians that I am lucky enough to know!
Me and Owen Wilson looking at something in the distance. Taken at the Douro Film Harvest. Not even a little bit fake… that cardboard cut-out is 100% real.
Spent most of yesterday asleep and/or on a plane. Now I’m back from my magical adventures in Douro/Porto. Lost my Westone UM2’s :( But gained this beautiful Cavaquinho (the grandfather of the ukulele) courtesy of Ivan Dias! :) Amazing! Listen to it here» http://youtu.be/kAy6brNZth4
