Hello, It’s me. My new EP is finally out. It features my versions of songs by Crosby, Stills & Nash, Big Star, Neil Young & Jackson Browne. You can read a bit more about how each song came about down below.

Just A Song Before I Go,

I just love this song. It’s an effortlessly good driving song, perhaps owing to the fact that Graham Nash wrote it whilst in a taxi to the airport after his driver bet him he couldn’t write a song during the 15 minute drive.

Late for the Sky
What can I say? This is one of the greatest songs ever written. I’ll always remember my first time traveling to San Francisco and stumbling into a free festival only to find myself watching Jackson Browne, my favourite songwriter, singing this song to thousands of people. Since then I can never travel through the US without this tune ringing through my head.

Harvest Moon
For the longest time people would say my voice was reminiscent of Neil Young and I’d nod and say thanks having only the slightest idea of who they were talking about. Eventually I thought I should probably listen to his music. Harvest Moon was the first song I ever heard of his and I’ve never looked back. It was like discovering my primary musical influence long after I’d started writing songs. A bizarre experience but one I’ll never forget.

I came late to Big Star. Like real late. My manager turned me onto their first album ‘#1 Record’ and I was hooked instantly. There’s just something effortless about the songwriting and timeless about the recordings. As cliché as it sounds it’s always the slower acoustic ballads that jump out at me on rock records and Thirteen is one hell of a ballad. This entire record is my go to driving album. The first thing I put on when starting another long drive to the next place.
