Just Us (Lyric Video)

Check out the lyric video for ‘Just Us’ (written and produced by me!) I wrote this song inspired by all the different ways we work through our pain and grief, especially during the challenging year+ we’ve faced.

Old Friends (Acoustic Version)

It’s been a long while since I posted a video with my face in it, but I had such a lovely response to this song that I wanted to share the acoustic version with you!

This year has been tough for us all and for many us, we have found hope and comfort through staying in touch with our loved ones, going for walks and for holding on to the many forms of art- all of which comforting us like old friends.

For those who follow who are checking out this site that don’t know, I live with Fibromyalgia (a chronic pain and fatigue condition) which has challenged me for the past decade of my life. I’ve been on a similar journey with accepting my invisible disability and I have several ‘old friends’ that have gotten me through it.

I really hope this upbeat sad song gives you both comfort and hope. We only get through this together.

New Creations 2020

It’s been one of the most challenging years for all of us, I hope that wherever you are, you are safe, well and hopeful.

I’ve been privileged enough to feel creative, I’ve written and produced 2 new songs in the last few months, both commentating on this year. Check them out here:

Take care of yourself and keep looking with hopeful eyes.

Lockdown Creations

During lockdown, I’ve been fortunate to feel creative; at times when hard truths have been overwhelming, picking up my guitar and singing my heart out has saved me.
So…
I have been working on tracks of mine that I’m most proud of, ones I want to be able to share with you, the best possible version of! I’ve written, recorded and produced everything and I can’t wait to get them up online!
The ‘Freedom In Writing’ EP is coming together and I’m planning on getting it all out to you during May! So keep your eyes pealed and your ears a-ready!
Stay safe!
