Paper Autumn

Exciting times! Lots of them. I am learning, changing, growing, glowing and collaborating.

On Thursday, I will be at the Manchester Art Gallery sharing my new collaboration with amazing science artist and musician, Ed Briggs, the wonderful mad music professor. We begin our full rehearsals today, which is very exciting and the music will be music made from paper to open the Manchester Exhibition, 'The First Cut'. On Thursday I will be opening for the Manchester Weekender which will also open that evening. So... come - it's free and I will perform two shows - one at 7.30 and one at 8.30pm - the exhibition will open from 6pm.

Click here for details on the First Cut exhibition and here for details of the Manchester Weekender which really is worth coming to Manchester for - lots of wonderment this weekend!

I have been commissioned again for the Bury Light Night with Alice Morter to make a special new sparkly piece of art and we are creating the Laughing Garden which is a recycled garden filled with beautiful and positively glowing art in the centre of Bury. It really will be filled with laughter as we have four laughing yoga classes.

Next up - Winter Songs the album is on it's way to wonderful designer and artist Sandra Whetham who will be designing it into a beautiful Wintery package and it will be for sale soon as a printed piece of art.  Sandra and I will be sharing a beautiful stage with the Troubadours too on the 22nd of December in Manchester for a one off huge collaboration of Sandra's art and our music. The tickets really are limited and it will be held at St Clement's church in Chorlton - details and tickets here

Finally, a new website is on it's way and shall be revealed with a new version of my last album which we ran out of and are getting lots more printed - it's now called DejaVoodu and Sandra is putting final touches to that too for me. This will all be released with a brand spanking amazing new video for 'If You Can't Make Me Happy' shot in a female wrestling ring with amazing wrestlers, Pippa L'Vinn and Shelby Beech. It's fun.

If you haven't already please support my new project and mission here  - I'm halfway there!

I will write a nice blog soon that's not just press and dates but it's wonderfully hectic at the moment so I am creating a lot and not thinking very much. Good times. I wish you well.
