A packed show at Brasserie Zedel’s cabaret venue ‘The Crazy Coqs’. If you haven’t visited this place it’s a must. It’s in the heart of Soho and always a fun night.
Thanks to Songlines magazine for a great review of my album ‘Poor Stuart’

Very occasionally, without any prompting, someone writes about your music in a way that you always hoped. Thanks to Danny Neill at Folk Radio UK for a lovely review.
My favourite quote from the review:
“Well, the cover images show him to be a heads up, can-do sort of chap. The kind of house guest who wouldn’t mind helping with the washing up.”
