I made a little video of one of my new songs – it’s called ‘The Circus Ring’. It’s been absolutely chucking it down here in Portland, so if the weather is similarly gloomy where you are perhaps it’ll help to fortify against the winter blues :)
And if you are in rainy Portland, come and say hello at a gig – I’m playing at The Waypost this Friday 23rd and The Thorne Lounge on Thursday 29th! More details are on my “Shows” page and my most up-to-date updates are usually on my Facebook page.
See you soon, and enjoy the new video!
I’ve been a bit quiet lately, and I can’t believe it’s May already and nearly June! Here’s a little morsel of music for you.
Who Knows Where the Time Goes – Sandy Denny
This is my version of a song I’ve had in my mind for a while. I’ve been a little bit obsessive with it, so I thought I’d be able to get it out of my system with a recording. It’s a simple acoustic home recording – it was tempting to try and make it “perfect” but I kept losing something, so this is just super simple, and a little imperfect. But that’s ok.
There have been loads of versions of this song, but I came across it from Eva Cassidy’s version, which I have loved for a long time. I only recently realised that I didn’t know much about the original, and Sandy Denny, who wrote it, and after a bit of youtubing her I was even more obsessed.
I hope you like it.
PS – I just found out the other day that “Letter from Home” is available for streaming on spotify – if you use spotify, the green icon on the left will take you to it, if you fancy a listen to my older stuff.
