Upcoming Events

With live performance an impossibility at the moment on foot of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve spent the last number of months performing covers of my favourite songs from home. You can visit my YouTube channel to hear me sing songs by David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Elliott Smith, Amy Winehouse, Supergrass, Suede, Manic Street Preachers, Blur and more. The latest video in the playlist appears below.
