Let’s Go (Official Video)

November 23, 2018

Hello everyone !!

Hope things are good with all of you …

Here is the very last video from the runaway series !!! Number 28 I believe ….. its been quite a journey and I am so so thankful to all of you who have come along for the ride  one last massive thank you also to Jarrad Seng , Stu Larsen and Chris Vallejo for helping me bring this ridiculously ambitious project to life !!!!!!

This final one is “lets go” and its a big mashup / montage of the entire road trip .

It was all shot on an old super8 camera that Jarrad Seng borrowed for the trip . The idea was that we would have it lying around and it would be up to all four of us to pick it up every now and then and film a load of little snapshots of our adventure .

The thing is , unless you’re an expert its very difficult to know if the thing is actually working or not so we had no idea if we were doing it right and if there would be anything to show for it all at the end …. Luckily it did work and the video below is the result .

It feels like a very long time ago now that we were cavorting around America filming all of this . So much has happened since . I’d like to sincerely thank all of you that have bought / streamed / watched / shared and listened to the album . The love has been phenomenal . Also to the thousands of you that came along to the shows – thank you for supporting me and my music and for making the gigs so special .

Thank you also to my wonderful touring family – thomas , chris , simon , Ian and Roxy and also my management team – dan , rebekah , Fran and everyone at i.e . Thank you for caring so much and working so hard .

One last special thanks to my amazing support acts – Lucy Rose, Ken Yates, Winterbourne, Chris Simmons, Steph Grace, Luke Thompson and Eddie Berman . What a damn pleasure !!!!

We have two more left for the year – PERTH this evening which is sold out and then on Sunday we’re at the 3 Oceans Wine Company – Margaret River for which there are still some tickets available so if you’re in this neck of the woods then come down and celebrate the end of this massive year with us 

I will be doing a small amount of touring next year too and we have some really exciting news on that coming shortly so watch this space ….

In the meantime though . A genuine and heartfelt thank you for allowing me to make the music that I love and share it with the world .

All my love .

He Leaves You Cold (Acoustic Live from Unityville, PA)

November 9, 2018

CALIFORNIA – thank you so much for two fantastic shows at the The Fillmore and The Belasco theatre – the perfect way to end what has been a phenomenal few weeks here in NORTH AMERICA . We truly have had an incredible time and I feel beyond lucky to have such an amazing group of people supporting me and my music over here . I’m sure it won’t be long till we’re back this way again 

We’re off to NEW ZEALAND now where I’m delighted to say that my good friend Luke Thompson will be supporting the show at the Powerstation in AUCKLAND and the mighty Winterbourne will be opening for me across AUSTRALIA !

All shows are now sold out other than the 3 Oceans Wine Company – Margaret River and a handful of tickets left for Enmore Theatre in SYDNEY . You can grab them from https://passengermusic.com/live if you so desire 

For now here is the live acoustic version of “he leaves you cold” . this was a pretty crazy one ….. we found ourselves well and truly off the beaten track as we were driving through rural Pennsylvania and stumbled upon an old abandoned house which seemed to be defying the laws of gravity by standing upright ….. a combination of it being absolutely freezing and us all feeling fairly certain that some shot gun touting mad man could pounce at any minute , meant that this was possibly the quickest video that we made…. I think its got a nice charm to it though and I hope y’all like it !!

Lots of love to you all .

He Leaves You Cold – Official Video

November 2, 2018

Hello you lot ! How are you all ?

we’ve been having the most excellent time here in NORTH AMERICA 🙂 VANCOUVER and SEATTLE were exceptional and looking forward to playing in PORTLAND this evening ! I really do love the north west 🙂

here is the 9th video from “RUNAWAY”  and it’s for a song called “ HE LEAVES YOU COLD”

This is by far the oldest song on the record . It was written over ten years ago when I was in my early twenties and to be really honest I’d all but forgotten about it and certainly never imagined it would eventually find its way on to a record .

Usually when I make an album I go in to the studio with twelve to fifteen songs and once they’re recorded we pick the best ten or eleven . With runaway I was convinced that I had the ten songs for the record and foolishly didn’t record any backups …. Of course when listening back to everything on the final day of recording with the band there was one song that for whatever reason hadn’t quite come out as well as the other nine .

My producer chris asked if there were any other songs floating about that might fit well . I spent several hours going back through the archives and eventually remembered this one . I was sceptical at first and found it hard to believe that a song written so long ago could co exist with all of my newest ones . I’m so glad that we ended up giving it a go . It actually ended up being a really important moment on the album and I’ve had a number of people saying that its they’re favourite (don’t know what that says about my song writing trajectory haha ;-))

For the video , tbh there wasn’t much of a plan other than to end up somewhere wintery and beautiful . That place turned out to be ASPEN, COLORADO …. An absolutely beautiful little ski town nestled within the Rocky Mountains (special to any dumb and dumber fans …. I fucking love that movie!!!)

We only had one day to make it so we opted to keep it very simple .

Needless to say it was absoluty freezing and kept the running theme of uncomfortable filming environments going beautifully 😉

As always a mahoooooooosive thank you to my buddy jarrad seng for filming and editing and to stu larsen and chris vallejo for braving the weather with us .

We’ve thrown so much content at you guys over the last few months … thank you all so much for your continued support . Watch , enjoy and share with your friends if you can .

All the best and thank you again .

Eagle Bear Buffalo (Acoustic Live from Canaan Mountain Wilderness Area, Utah)

October 20, 2018

Hey everyone !!

Sorry this is a little late …. We’ve been running around like maniacs here in the states ….

Massive thanks to everyone who came out to WASHINGTON , BROOKLYN and BOSTON – three very different shows and all excellent  onwards to CANADA …..

In the meantime here is the live acoustic version of “eagle bear buffalo” .

One of the highlights of our road trip was staying in traditional Native American accommodation in Utah . It was beautiful to be out in such wide open space for a night and we felt it was the perfect setting for this song .

Thanks in advance for watching and have a lovely weekend wherever you may be xx
