Really exciting news, I’ll be supporting Josienne Clarke on her first live dates in Slovakia this September. Josienne is one of the best singers in the world, and has won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Josienne has frequently been compared to the great Sandy Denny, but present too are elements of Nina Simone and Gillian Welch; all three are important influences on her work.
Mr Alec Bowman will also be playing some songs from his forthcoming work, and this will be their public debut!
I will be playing songs from my new album Slowdive, which has been described by folking.com as “show[ing] traditional/folk influences, and can certainly be described as fitting in with “a melancholy folk rock project“, though there’s a raw passion here that transcends melancholy”
