It's been a long time coming, eight years in fact, but I am finally announcing my new solo record 'Prepared'. It will be out on May the 17th on chic rose pink vinyl and standard classic colourway CD.
>>Pre-Order Prepared 

To celebrate my re-emergence, my new single and title track 'Prepared' is out T.O.D.A.Y. - We filmed a video for this in WWT Martin Mere starring friend and local Wigan hero, amateur wrestler Paul "Rampaging Rydo" Ryding. It reflects and celebrates the power of patience and quiet preparation which twitchers display. Maximum thanks to Jess Swainson for directing and Scott Dulson on camera - the DREAM TEAM!!! >> Watch the video 

GIGS! I have a bunch of gigs coming up including a BBC Radio 6 Music session for Riley and Coe (tomorrow! 5th of March), a tour with China Crisis and some headline gigs too. Jumbo Records have kindly welcomed me to play in their amazing shop on the day after release and Jumbo Matty said if you
pre order the record from their shop you will get prioritised entry.
