YAY! It’s finally here! Tonight is the 2nd instalment in my songwriter series at Tower of Song in Cotteridge! It’s going to be amazing….featuring stunning talent Louise Petit and her wonderful band. Also, I’ve been rehearsing for an all keys set for myself, so I’m excited to play something different. As a matter of fact, I have recorded 5 songs from my set list, and they will be available tonight at the show as well as a download on bandcamp at midnight tonight! There’s a couple of new songs, some reinvented ones, and another obscure cover. Enjoy!
The first of my songwriter sessions at Tower of Song could not have gone better. Thanks to all of you who attended, tweeted, retweeted, shared, and listened. I hope to see all of you and more at the next one. The gig was reviewed by Three Chords and the Truth UK and he’s written a lovely blog post which you can read here or in Fatea Records Magazine. We also featured in the day of one of my favourite people on earth, Andrew Dubber. Here’s the post and don’t forget to peruse some of his other work as well!
Emily and Fiddes were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. What a way to start a series! One of those perfect nights that will stick with me forever.
So don’t forget that we have Birmingham’s own Louise Petit at the next show on June 23! Mark it in your diaries! It’s going to be another brilliant night! x

A few months back, I played a gig at a lovely venue in Cotteridge called Tower of Song. It was a true listening environment and amazing people running the place. I’m so happy to say that they’ve said yes to a bi-monthly (for now) Sunday songwriter gig there! Our first amazing artist has been confirmed as Emily Baker, one of my song writing heroes. I first saw her perform at the illustrious Ginglik, at one of the best singer/songwriter nights in London, vetted and booked by Amity Hill. There have been only a few people in my life that made me tear up the first time I saw them perform, and Emily is one.
Here’s what people are saying about Emily’s new record All at Sea…
Q Magazine **** ‘Within minimal enhancement…she sings and strums about fragile lives and loves with the directness of a stripped back Aimee Mann’
Acoustic Magazine ‘a masterclass in restrained acoustic balladry…’.
Don’t miss this amazing gig!
