Here is the new video for my song Hollows. Enjoy xx


Afternoon all, it is my EP launch this evening at St Pancras Old Church! Come on down at 9pm if you fancy hearing some songs in one of the most beautiful venues in London. The new EP is online and avaliable in all the usual places. It is a featured release on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Page which made me grin like a Cheshire Cat for a few hours! The Hollows music video is locked and ready to roll so hopefully I will be able to share it with you all soon. Until then, thank you as always for your support and maybe I’ll see a few of you tonight! Enjoy the Sunshine xx

It’s been too long…

Hello all, it has been quite some time since my last post. Since then my songs have found their way into several different TV shows including Criminal Minds, Suits, Finding Carter and Hollyoaks. I’ve recorded a brand new EP (pre-order here) out on June 15th and also cooked up a new music video for a new track called Hollows produced and recorded with Sebastian Fox of Mt Wolf which will be gracing your computer screens shortly. The still below is a little taster of what to expect (yes, moody black and white posing!).

Check out my new single Your Love on Soundcloud, Spotify and iTunes.

In other news I’m recording new songs as we speak with some very talented people and I’m excited to get them done and to share them all with you. Until then thank you again for your support. Sons and Daughters recently passed 1.3 million plays on Spotify which is totally nuts and very humbling!

Come down to Old St Pancras Church, June 18th for my EP launch gig.

Rich Mahogany

Here is my session for The Mahogany Blog of my new song, Stone. You can hear it in all it’s recorded glory over on my bandcamp page. It was a real pleasure to meet up with and play for Mahogany. You should all check out the blog as it is fantastic. Keep up the good work guys.


I have finally learnt the tuning for The Wolves Act 1 and 2 by Bon Iver, my absolute favourite band in the world. I remember when Skinny Love was posted as the itunes single of the week way back when and ever since I have been devouring Bon Iver and anything else Justin Vernon turns his hand to. For those of you who love Bon Iver, check out Justin Vernon’s side projects, Volcano Choir and Gayngs. Also Deyarmond Edison (attached for your pleasure), which was a band he was in before. 

Anyway, the new tracks are up and spinning. I have more in the bag but I will hold those back for later. Akira are going to put out the next EP sometime soon. I just need to make a new video and get some artwork sorted out (hectic)…..all of which are in the works. Especially excited to see what Hazel Stroud produces in the art department. I am sitting down to write new songs right now, experimenting with fancy tunings. I should hopefully complete the new track in the next couple of weeks, a little number called ,”Foolish Love”. It is my homage to Skinny Love. Keep praying for sunshine.

The new tracks are finally all shuffling into order and anxiously awaiting to be let loose into the wild. I am merely awaiting the arrival of high quality files for band camp….watch this space.
