New Monochrome Echo EP Analog Artifacts Out Today!!

Hi guys

Today I am releasing my brand new Monochrome Echo EP Analog Artifacts on Bandcamp.

This is the follow up to my debut EP 64 Souls which came out last year on the Blend label. I wanted to release this one myself and see what I can do self-promoting it. It’ll also be released on all digital platforms on 14th April so it’ll eventually be available on iTunes, eMusic etc and you’ll be able to stream it on Spotify if you like too.

But as always the best way to by my music is directly from me (!) via my Monochrome Echo Bandcamp page. The money goes straight to me and helps me make more music. I really hope you like this new direction.

Whilst you’re at it, please also like my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter,  and indeed Spotify. It really helps get this new project noticed. And tell your mates if you like it too…

The artwork for the EP was created by the wonderful LostMachines DSGN. You can check out his work on Instagram. He’s one of my favourite artists on Instagram so I was really pleased to be able to hook up with him and work together on the artwork.

You can stream the whole EP right here and hopefully some of you will buy it too 😉

Stream The Divine Comedy live at Folies Bergère

Hello folks

Just a quick post as i realised that I’ve yet to post anything on this website of mine for quite some time and clearly you are all feeling neglected.

So the big European tour from The Divine Comedy has come to a finish and I’m sure some of you would love to relive those halcyon days from the comfort of your own homes.

Well in that case you’ll be delighted to know that you can still stream the entire Folies Bergère show from back in February on Youtube via those clever people at Culturebox.

And here it is

We’ll be seeing you at some festivals over the summer months.

Until then you’ll be glad to hear that Inhale a brand new Monochrome Echo Ep out this Friday! It’s called Analog Artifacts and it’ll be available on Bandcamp, and everywhere else the following Friday 14th for those of you that (for some silly reason) don’t like Bandcamp.

I’ll remind you of this important news on the day. Obviously.

Until then…

Foreverland News, Later with Jools Holland & Tour Dates!!

So as I’m sure you’re all aware the brand new album from The Divine Comedy Foreverland is very much out now and we’ve been busy travelling round promoting the release.

It climbed up to number 7 in the official UK album charts in it’s first week of release, plus it was number 3 in Ireland and 14 in France! Very exciting indeed…

We played on Chris Evans and Dermot O’Leary’s BBC radio 2 shows, then dashed off to Paris for an unplugged gig for PIAS plus a few days of television and radio spots before returning to the UK in time to play on Later… with Jools Holland.

You can stream the whole unplugged PIAS Paris show here on the ARTE website. Not sure how long it’ll stay live so have a look while you can!

The Later… Live! show aired on Tuesday but the full Later… show is on tonight at 11.05pm on BBC2!!

I’ve been playing all these unplugged shows on my little Kala ukulele bass which has been great fun. It’s been getting a lot of attention over the last few weeks. You’ll see it in action on Jools later tonight through my new Aguilar rig. Sounds fantastic…
