Happy New Year!

Just as I’d got used to writing 2014, it’s time to change to 2015.

Main news is that after a few years off from the Blues scene, I’ll be playing for blues singer Malaya Blue.

Malaya is an exceptional singer and songwriter, and I am very chuffed to have been asked to join her band. The other musicians involved are my good friend Andy Cooper on hammond, Andrew Walker (guitar) and Trev Turley (bass). We will also have special guest Will Johns on guitar and vocals on some gigs.

We have a few Norfolk dates already in the diary, as well as a great slot on the Blues Matters Stage at the Great British Rock & Blues Festival in Skegness at the end of January. Gig dates will be here on my website, as well as at Malaya’s website www.malayablue.com.

Meanwhile, I’m still busy playing for the fantastic Claire Barker Band, and you might also see me (in disguise) hitting things with Ultra90s, The Motowners and Retro Rockets.
