Buy a CD and help a Horse Raise Money for the RR Animal Refuge!

Hey friends! There is an animal shelter with over 400 animals run by one selfless woman by the name of Rose in Ontario Canada. Rose's water well has run dry so she has to truck in water for the animals and is in desperate need of funds to continue doing this. Until the 13th July I will be offering 10% off everything in my store if you put in the discount code: waterforanimals and I will donate 10% of the sales to Rose. If you were thinking of buying a CD for a friend or downloading my new EP, here is your chance to get a discount and help a worthy cause at the same time. You can also find out more and donate directly to the RR Refuge at

Thank you so much!

14 Shows in 18 Days Tour RECAP

14 shows in 18 days. All solo with my UK singer songwriter friend Karl Scott except for the last one where I met up with my guitarist Karsten Lipp. Yep, I am insane.

Tue 5th June - Electric House Concert Bad Segeberg

Ah it's funny when things don't turn out at all how you envisioned them. This was completely different in my head. Not bad, just different. Not sure they appreciated me singing about masturbation, self harm or my ex girlfriend though I think the lovey dovey adele like one was ok ;) They loved Karl. We love you Karl!

Wed 6th June - Pilgerhalle Luebeck

Lovely space, lovely acoustics and lovely folk but Luebeck, what's up with the weather eh?

Thu 7th/Fri 8th June - Cafe Frieda Insel Poel

When we first drove up the drive way Karl and I were like WTF? is this a private house? But it turned out to be a really great gig. For 2 days we set up camp outside and played for all the tourists. I sold out of my CD's each day, and had to make more. Yummy food and pretty town :)

Sat 9th June - Kulturbar Greifswald

It's always nice to see Tiger and play in his nice bar. He also made us a lovely dinner with his family. His daughter is super cute. The bar was a little quiet that night but a friendly audience none the less and we stayed with super cool couch surfers including having a beach picnic the next day.

Wed 13th June - Kaffee Schwarz Leipzig

Fussball :(
Bit of a weird gig...weird atmosphere and a few weird people, not bad just weird. How many times can I say weird? 5 I guess. Let's try again next time without the fussball shall we?

Thu 14th June - Tiki Taky Prague

Prague you're completely mad but I like you. Super fun gig. Super mental audience. Thanks for forcing me to play 'down this road' after so long. Nice to see my long lost old flatmate from London Vendula. See you next time!

Sat 16th June - Veganmania Vienna

Nice generous festival people as per usual. Nice audience, excellent food and thanks for all the free veggie things I took away. Oh and Vienna, it sucked that you wouldn't let us leave the city for 90 min the following morning to get to Linz because of a motor cycle parade. WTF?

Sun 17th June - Bagua Linz

Funny how people are usually wrong when they tell you certain places will suck. WRONG! This gig turned out to be one of the nicest surprises on the tour. We played a show for clients who suffer from mental illness. Thank you for listening so intently, I was proud to play 'Turmoil of Winter' for you. Keep kicking on, I know you can be strong! x

Mon 18th June - Electric House Concert Tuebingen

One of the highlights. Fantastic house, audience and food. What a wonderful evening. Karl and I stayed up late talking with the folk who live in the house and I played a left handed guitar at 3 in the morning. Very cool.

Tue 19th June - Electric House Concert Heidelberg

Second time back. Lovely folk as per usual and Julia is an amazing host and person. Thanks for taking such good care of us.

Wed 20th June - Caricatura Bar Kassel

Last minute surprise gig organized by couch surfer Larissa. Was really fun. Thanks for coming back and see you in July again Kassel!

Thu 21st June - Electric House Concert Halle

Haha this was a bit of a mess with people arriving so late and us having to leave early. Sorry about that but it was still fun. See you too in July Halle with Karsten!

Sat 23rd June - Wohnzimmer Liebe Hamburg

Reunited with Karsten after many weeks and for a really nice electric house concert in Hamburg. A real highlight and a nice way to end the crazy tour.
