This week (Thursday 4th) I’m delighted to be co-hosting The Lantern Society with Folklore productions. The Lantern is a really special night for me and it means a lot to me that I will be co-host for what would be my 3rd time doing so. We have a great lineup, packed full of brilliant musicians, hope you can make it!
Photography is a massive passion for me, I love taking pictures. While playing music, I also take photos at the gigs I’m either playing on or at the gigs I’m attending. I’m influenced by the classic black and white movies I adore so much and by fashion photography but like with my music, I like to take in as many influences as I can. Here’s a selection of my photography, if your a musician, band and interested in me taking photos at a gig, photo shoot or for a musical release, please get in touch on my contact page, thank you.

Psycheday Night Saturdelic at the Betsy Trotwood 25th March
Performed at the Karamal this was an amazing moment and one of my favourites since playing music. I was honoured Mayaan and Maris could share they genius music talents and join me on stage to perform what is a special song for me. Huge thank you to them and a massive thank to George Venus for making this brilliant film and capturing the moment.
Last Friday I co-headlined at the Karamel bar in Wood Green. I shared the night with my friend and great musician Maayan Madar and join us on the night was two other music friends, MIRI and Catherine Rudie. Also playing in support on was a singer songwriter I didn’t know but was very good, Kaity Rea.
I really enjoyed the whole night and the set I played. It was difficult to begin with for many reasons and felt uncomfortable but it turned fortunes thankfully and in the end was highly enjoyable, spiritual too at times, in that way performing can be at times, though difficult to describe.
I was joined during my performance for song of the songs by my friend Maris, playing his amazing violin and during one other Maayan played piano with us, in what was my highlight of the performance, I loved it.
