First time at my home festival, I had such an amazing time playing ‘The Den’ at Cambridge Folk Festival, thanks to everyone who came along and supported me. It was great to meet a whole new load of up and coming musicians from across the globe. I did a warm up set at the Hobgoblin beer tent, and then on to perform in the Peoples’ Front Room which has to be the coolest and quirkiest stage I’ve played yet! Thanks to all at The Den and BBC Introducing for the interview and supporting my music x
Thanks so much to Tom Simkins, Huw Stevens and Tom Robinson for airing 'Invasion' on their programmes, it's been an amazing start to 2015. It still sounds weird hearing your own stuff talked about and played on the radio, but I could get used to it!
Listen to Invasion here
Had a fab time in the red room with Sue Dougan today. Made a mad dash through the Cambridge traffic to chat and play 3 songs. There's a real buzz doing live radio shows at the BBC, so much going on behind the scenes you wouldn't imagine!
Also good to catch up with Tom Simkins an Nick Carter, seems strange meeting them when they're not on air!
I'm so pleased to have played my third LodeStar in a row at the 'In The Fen Stage' at LodeStar 2014. It's really like a homecoming for me, and every year the atmosphere and audiences get better and better! A massive thanks to Doug Durrant and his team @lodestarfest for making this amazing event possible.
I also had the pleasure of talking to Nick Carter of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire backstage before my set. It was my first live interview at a festival, a big thanks to Nick and Tom Simkins for supporting my music, and to producer Heather Noble who makes these broadcasts happen.
Had great fun meeting Tom Simkins at the BBC Radio Cambridgeshire studios today. He was the first presenter at Introducing to pick up on my demo EP SAFER. I'm so grateful for his help and encouragement.
I recorded a couple of acoustic versions of 'The False' and 'My' which are tracks from my debut EP INVASION. We then chatted about my musical career so far, you can listen to the interview and songs in full over on my Radio page
Also we were promoting the Lion Yard Summer Music Festival which is being held on August bank holiday weekend Friday 22nd August and Monday 25th August.
Take a selfie with me or any of the other guys and enter to win a £500 shopping bundle, shame I can't enter!
Back to reality and GCSE revision today! A massive thanks to Dermot for playing ‘We Came Home’ on his show yesterday. It was surreal hearing Mum chatting away to the man himself about my music, he was so lovely to her and she handled the pressure like a radio pro!
Can't believe Dermot's tweeting my name along with the likes of Oscar Winner Anne Hathaway!
You can listen again to the whole show here until Saturday 12th April...
...or after that there's a clip on my website here
