15th - 17th July 2016 | Halsway Manor Songwriting Retreat with Reg Meuross and Laurie Shepherd
I've been going through a bit of a dry spell with writing songs recently, probably because of being busy writing essays at uni - no one really wants to hear essays as a song! But it was really great to have a chance to get away to a beautiful part of Somerset to write a few songs and feel inspired again. I met some incredibly creative, inspiring people too!
This was a well needed getaway weekend, and I'm really happy with the few half songs that were written during this weekend. I can't wait to show you all the final pieces!
7th - 9th July 2016 | 2000 Trees Festival Vlog

3rd July 2016 | Busking and BBQ
It has taken me a very long time to work up the courage to go busking, but I decided to just go for it and just do it! And unsurprisingly it went okay! I only got £7 but it's a good start I think. I got some lovely feedback from listeners and people sat in Costa :) reckon I'll do it again!
Music by Bonobo.
