December Gig Booked @ Fuel, Manchester

My friend Ruby Tingle is having her first solo exhibition and the release of her first EP at Fuel in Withington, (Manchester) on Monday 10th December and she's asked me to come along and play some songs too!

I'm a big fan of her music and recently discovered her art work too so I'm honoured to be asked to play on her big night :-D

Catholic Cemetery (Lyrics)

Lyrics for one of the new songs I'm playing at the Dry Bar gig on 16th Sept! 30th Sept!

Catholic Cemetery

I took you to a graveyard
Parked up the car
Camera in your hands
Visionary heart

Headless statues
Angels without hands
Jesus on a headstone cross
Trees overhang

And I sang by the church wall
On the edge of the valley
Thinkin' 'bout the endless skies
And the heat of your body

Words soaring
Through my lungs, to the air
Watching you clamber through the stones
Artistic prayer

You returned to the church side
Kissing my neck
Feeling shivers inside
And your hand on my leg

Luscious green life
Ivy covered tombs
Bathing in the ether
Our sparks in the gloom

You shuffle closer, so we're
A jigsaw in bed
With your beard
Tickling the back of my neck

I'm driving with my hand
On your inside thigh
You lean over and kiss me
And this is my high

Gig @ Dry Bar

Nice pies.

Just booked my first gig in Manchester since returning!  I'll be playing at Dry Bar on Oldham Street in the Northern Quarter on Sunday 16th September. Gig has now been changed to Sunday 30th September.

I've been itching to do something different from the standard 1 vocal + guitar for a while now so I'm going to debut some new material at this gig in a slightly different direction to my other stuff with the help of my iPad... Tracks called "Catholic Cemetary" and "Don't Let The World Get In The Way" and "Beautiful Man In A Suit".

I'll deffo throw a cover song in too!

I Only Wanna Be With You (YouTube Cover)

I've been playing this one for a while but only just got around to recording it... it makes me happy to sing it, I've always loved this track - both the Dusty Springfield version and the Vonda Shepard version too :-D
