I sing, write songs and make music.
I post all kinds of things on here, though I mostly write blogs about the projects that I'm working on.
You can find links to me on other social networking sites below and links to my records above.

Apologises for not posting this yesterday, like I said I would.
This is just a short update to let you know what’s going on with my new music.
I was planning to release an EP and a single on bandcamp this month, but that hasn’t happened.
I’d like to release them both before I go back to university, which will be sometime before the end of September.
My original plan was to release the single and a b-side first, then the EP shortly afterwards.
I’ve now switched that around, so the EP will come first followed by the single.
The reason for this is the EP is made up entirely of acoustic songs, the whole thing is just my voice and piano, whereas the single is a produced electropop song.
I hate using terms like this because I find them clichéd, but I want the EP to have a “raw” sound and I plan to capture my vocal performances of the songs in very few takes.
There’s quite a few different things that need to be recorded for the single, so I feel that the EP will take much less time to finish. Therefore it seems logical to concentrate on that now and finish it first!
I’m really excited for you to hear all of this new music! I’m incredibly proud of it!
If you haven’t already checked them out, you can also find me on many other social networks. (please see the links below)
Thanks for reading. As always, I’ll be sure to keep you updated with everything I’m doing!
The only thing I need to do in order to finish these new songs is record vocals, and I can’t do that today because I’m full of annoying hayfever! (or I’ve caught a bug… I’m not too sure yet)
Anyway, I’m now going to watch some Lauren Bacall movies and hope I start to feel better soon.
I’ll post a short blog tomorrow updating you all on what’s happening with these new songs (I’ve changed my plans slightly).
Talk to you soon,
“Humphrey Bogart was buried with a small, gold whistle once part of a charm bracelet he had given to Lauren Bacall before they married. It was inscribed with a quote from their first movie together: ‘If you want anything, just whistle.’”
I guess he whistled.
