Hi, Don't worry I haven't emigrated, I am at last close to completion! The past few years have been an education and an unexpected journey that has steered the album on a very different course.

The album is just about ready for mixing and I am planning a launch with live dates featuring some of the musicians involved later in the summer. I am really happy with the sound and I can't wait for you to hear it! Sorry it's taken so long, millions of rewrites, it will be worth the wait!
Thanks for your continued patience and support!
A quick album update, with your generous support to date I have hired and recorded drums, double bass, hurdy-gurdy, violins and cellos, I am about to record woodwinds, sax and harmonica. All to be looped, mutated and processed into the dark guitar / electronic soundscape I have created!
Things are talking a little longer than expected due to film work and other projects I am working on to pay the bills but the album is sounding great and I hope will be worth the long wait!
Thank you for your support and ongoing patience !
The album is coming along really well, I am thrilled with the progress and direction. Over the past few months I have been working with some amazing musicians and we aim to have the album finished in the spring.
Wishing you all a merry Christmas and the best for 2014.
Thanks again for your support.
