What a year so far! A band tour in japan, folllowed by supporting This is the Kit on tour in the UK and jumping into each others sets for old-times sake, and some lovely festival shows including my first ever appearance at the beautiful Shambala Festival. Since January I have been honing my 6th album Flux co-produced with Marcus Hamblett (Villagers / Laura Marling). Flux is an album of big bold songs: a response to the flow of life up-rooted; a protest against the flow of recent political history; a diary of the flow within the intimate space of home. Collaborators include my right hand woman Emma Gatrill (Willie Mason / Matthew and the Atlas), drummer Rob Pemberton (Emily Barker / Low Chimes), bassist Jim Barr (Portishead) and vocalists Kate Stables and Rozi Plain (This is The Kit). I am now creating artwork and videos so stay tuned!
