Heart’s on Fire ft. Ed Sheeran – live at the Ziggo Dome

June 1, 2017

hi everyone !

its been a while … hope you’re all doing well 🙂

we’re getting back on the road again this weekend and we’ll playing a bunch of beautiful looking festivals and gigs around europe . i can’t fucking wait !!!!

we’re kicking things off in JERSEY tomorrow night at Gloucester hall and you can still grab tickets from here if you fancy coming along .
(be sure to check out the support lucy rose ….. she’s AMAZING !!!)

we’re then on to HOLLAND for one of my favourite festivals pinkpop and to do our own show in groningen (sold out) .

talking of the netherlands , this video is a bit special …. its from my show at the ziggo dome in amsterdam back in october last year . it was the biggest ever passenger headline show with an amazing 14,000 people there .
it was an incredible night for many reasons but i think this has to be the highlight …. what a moment !
we used to sing this song together every night when i was supporting ed a few years ago so it was pretty lovely to be able to do it again after so long .

massive thanks to ed sheeran , the boys at seesaw and my sound guys for capturing it so beautifully , my fantastic band and to everyone that came along that night .

please feel free to share this with your mates and i look forward to seeing some of you throughout the summer !!

loads of love .

Hotel California (The Eagles cover)

April 9, 2017

hello everyone ! hope this finds you all well 🙂
we’re in ATLANTA for the last show of the north american tour so it feels like the perfect time to share the latest and last “sunday night video” for a while ….
we had a day off after the san diego show last week so we drove out to a pretty surreal place called salton sea beach . its an old abandoned town on the edge of a saltwater lake about three hours in land from the coast .
it was a really weird place . left to decay and forgotten about other than a few remaining residents .
we arrived later than expected and were battling to get something shot before the sun went down . in the end we decided to do the whole thing in one take …. this is a pretty tricky way of doing it as means there are no edits so there can’t be any fuck ups …. from anyone ….
after multiple attempts we managed to get a great take just before the sun disappeared . a big relief i have to say !
i should think most of you will know this one ….. “hotel california” by the Eagles . what a magical song .
thanks to my brilliant and patient band and crew for saying yes to the “sunday night video” project . touring is exhausting enough without spending your days off filming and I really am massively appreciative !!
an enormous thank you to Jarrad Seng Photography . your photos and videos just get better and better and i feel so lucky to have worked on such a body of work together . may there be many more weird and wonderful moments to come !
and lastly to you guys – its been so much fun making these videos for you and we’ve been completely blown away by the response . thank you all so much for watching , sharing and for your wonderful feedback !!!
please help us go out with a bang and share this as much as possible 🙂
so much love to you all .
