    My last gig was at @ccfest in January. With lockdown easing, live performances still look to be a long way off, yet there is no financial help or support available for most who work in the industry. It’s not just a way to make a living, it’s a way of life. #LetTheMusicPlay

    Soundwaves! Listening to the Brodick String Quartet, recorded separately in Lockdown slowly come together for my new album. Cello, viola and 2nd violin tracks down, now just need the icing on top with first violin! So exciting.. #newalbum #newsongs #newmusic
