07.02.17 - one of my personal fave gigs was playing at the Institute supporting "SayWeCanFly."  the audience were incredibly supportive of my music, and even saw a few people singing along to my songs. This was the second time playing this venue, as I played it last year in February 2015 supporting the very funny "Hamell On Trail." I even got to support him on the next date of the tour at "Bush Hall" in Shepards Bush in London.

02.05.17 - Check out my release as a duo for the "Plains For Breakfast E.P" a Collaboration with artist "Plain And Simple" to create Hip Hop/Acoustic vibes. The single and music video for "Short Term Pain"  features model and Miss Birmingham 2015 Katie as main actress. My friends at "Lumina Studios" created a special bike helmet with 2 cameras attached to it to create the first person effect. Check it out below 



The video was uploaded on JDZ media which features some of the biggest artists in grime (Sox, Bugsy Malone and Devilman.) We had airtime on BBC WM as well as a live session/interview with presenters Jack Parker and Louise Brierley.

2014 release "Blood, Sweat and Broken Years" I recorded at "The Twang's" previously owned studio, also where Birmingham band "Jaws" recorded their Debut Album. It featured my first collaboration, with London artist "Benjamin Yellowitz," recorded and co-written at his home studio in  London. This track "Colliding Faith" was aired on BBC WM at the end of 2014.


Also on the E.P, one of my favourite moments throughout my music journey was recording the video for "While We're Still Here." I filmed my Inter-rail trip running past famous monuments and documenting my personal faves along the way, with the help of filming from my travel buddy and good friend Lauren May.


 

  

  "Blood, Sweat and Broken Years" E.P is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music along with many other formats, the link available to the iTunes is at the top left of the page. 

 As well as the release of "Blood Sweat and Broken Years" in 2014, I did a month long tour with "David Young" and "Dan Salt" which we named the "Dude Where's Your Car Tour.

Twenty scheduled shows, along with other last minute shows that we organised. I was the driver of the legendary van that got us around on tour, along with being photographer/video person/dad figure amongst everything else, involved in tour life. 

 


We documenting the whole tour from audiences and people we come across. I got them to shout "Dude Where's Your Car" it was a fantastic way to remember the people we met along the way. 

 


 

 Justin Timberlake, Mcbusted, LG Arena Forum supports, "Sway" Music Video and BBC WM support: In music timing can be everything, and on the release of my music video for Sway, it couldn't have gone any better. On the weekend release of the teaser Video, I played at the LG Arean Forum in Birmingham before Justin Timberlake on the friday, had the Track Sway played on BBC WM Saturday night. The release of the full video for "Brains For Breakfast - Sway" soon after. 




 The video was recorded by the same team behind filming for the TV show "Made In Chelsea." A guy from my school Martin Moseley was the guy who made everything possible as he worked for the film company. The Power Rangers Megazord was the main feature of the video, with use of  green screen special effects to create a whole new light and bring the song to life

Work.Rest.Play E.P - I think the music I created during the Work.Rest.Play era was my proudest recording and writing moments. As mentioned before the track "Sway" was on this E.P but the video came later on. The track "Orla" was always a crowd pleaser and had an exciting time  recording this, as it was orginally only meant to be straight up acoustic. Eddie Thomas the producer pushed me to my limits and together we produced some great music.

The title track Work.Rest.Play had it's own artwork. If you have followed me, you will remember the alien eating brains. Looking back now, I should have used this as the main Artwork. At the E.P launch there were a limited amount of the picture with added extras available for Limited Edition as the printed versions hadn't arrived on time! (Not many people knew that).

 Along with the E.P was a tour, with my two flat mates at the time Joe and Craig. This was a 14 day tour across England that was documented by my friend Craig. There is a 4 part tour film along with a blog written up on WordPress, click on the link below.
