I’ve now relocated from Leeds to London where I’ll be spending the next two years studying at the Royal Academy of Music for my MA Performance. I’m having an incredible time so far checking out all of the great gigs that are going every single night in this city – highlights from the past week include Hannes Riepler, Felix Rossi and co at the Vortex jam session, George Crowley, Dave Kane and James Maddren at The Con Cellar Bar and the Michael Chillingworth Septet at the Oxford.

In other news, Jiannis Pavlidis and I have our new duo record coming out next Sunday the 20th September. It’s a standards record and will be available online for the mega-low price of ¬£1.50 (although you can pay more if you like!) – see¬† for more info – we’re also doing a gig at Seven Jazz in Leeds at lunchtime to promote the release.
