I'm in the middle of recording my debut solo album at 'The Ironworks' studio in Brighton.

The album is being produced and recorded by Mike Pelanconi a.k.a Prince Fatty and features an all-star lineup including legendary reggae artists Horseman, Black Steel and Dub Judah.

Mike has worked with numerous great artists over the years; Manu Chao, Nick Cave, Lily Allen, The Skints, Little Roy, Gentlemen's Dub Club, Hollie Cook and Mafia & Fluxy to name a few.  He is an expert engineer & producer and Reggae music his speciality.

The tracks are being recorded through the finest of vintage equipment and onto analogue tape to give the album the warmth of Studio 1 and Motown records.

The album is scheduled for official release at the start of Summer 2013. The money raised on Fund it through pre-sale orders will help to cover the costs of studio time, mastering and musicians.

* All funders will receive an exclusive bonus track that will not be released. *

Thanks for your time and support!
