Life Jacket

Track 2 from "Chapter One: Lost" is now live. Introducing: Life Jacket

Rather more hard-hitting than my last song. It's also quite a depature from my previous material stylistically, and is certainly one of the most serious subject matters I've approached.

A little bit of context: I wrote this song after watching the BBC documentary "Exodus: Our Journey To Europe". A fantastic documentary, and portrait of the migration crisis. Unfortunately, despite all the kind hearted people in this world, there are still those who will try and profit from the misfortune of others, and one thing that stuck in my mind was the fact that some life jackets being sold were not authentic, and actually absorbed water rather then helping the wearer keep afloat. Keep that in mind when listening to the song, which is also written from the perespective of a life jacket. Of all the songs on the album, it seemed an obvious addition to "Chapter One: Lost". 

Hopefully it will get you thinking. Would love to know your thoughts and opinions, please share so as many people as possible can see it.

NEW MUSIC MONDAY!

Every Monday for the next 3 weeks, I will be throwing new tunes your way! 

 Original artwork by the fantastic Elizabeth Fraser - this is actually just a small part of a larger painting, which will be the artwork for the full album. It's absolutely beautiful; I'm so grateful to have had Elizabeth on board with this project, and I can't recommend her highly enough. Check out her work here: http://fraserartstudio.com 


This will culminate in the official release of "Chapter One: Lost" - a collection of 3 songs taken from my upcoming album Lost & Found, focusing around the themes of loss and longing. The collection will be available on Monday July 17th on all major online platforms (Spotify, iTunes, etc...)


In Time

You can check out the first of these songs RIGHT NOW! 

'In Time' is a nostalgic reminiscence of the innocence of young love, and how this can change when difficulties arise. 

Head over to SoundCloud to hear the full track.




Official Video


And check out the music video on YouTube, made by Marc Bird and filmed up in beautiful Alnmouth, Northumberland. 


This is the first time I've put out new music in quite a while, and I'd absolutely love to hear what you think. As always, I really appreciate your support, and if you'd like to share the song and video with friends, family, anyone you think might enjoy it, then that would be fantastic. I'm really proud of the song and video, so let's get it out there!

Until next Monday... M x

BAAFest

What a fantastic weekend at Bellingham All Acoustic Music Festival (BAAFEST)






I had great fun performing and running the beer tent stage again. Saw some fantastic live acts, and discovered some new bands and artists. It's a lovely little festival with a really friendly atmosphere, I'd highly recommend it. Well done and thanks to Paul and Fiona for all their hard work. See you next year!
