I grew up near Huntingdon and moved to London after graduating in 2007. Shortly after university I released my first ever single, ‘Two Kids’.
In 2008 I released the ‘You, Your Cat & Me EP‘ – which has sold over 12,000 copies to date (crazy!). I went on lots of tours, was on lots of radios and even had a Jagermeister endorsement. Living the dream!
In 2009 I thought I’d cracked it. I had Sushi on the 7th floor of a major record label and was promised the chance to make the album of my dreams. It never happened and I was gutted (to put it mildly).
In 2010 I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life and worked a couple of crappy jobs while deliberately ignoring my guitar and trying to find another love.
In 2011 I was asked to do a few shows and said yes. I really enjoyed them and I decided to make another record.
I didn’t have money to spend on expensive studios and had always wanted to produce myself so I bought an Apogee One and had a go. ‘Words and Nothing More’ came out on December 6th (4 days after I finished mixing it) and went straight to number 4 in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart on a marketing budget of £0 and a few tweets!
On January 2nd 2012 I had a silly idea… #onesongaweek
