I’ve been lucky enough to spend most of 2019 flying around the world, working with the amazing Michael Kiwanuka and his great band. A real pleasure. Lovely people and such a truly great live show.
This is the sort of gig that if I wasn’t working on it, I’d be down the front row.
Check out his albums too “Home Again”, “Love & Hate” and his newly released and stunning “Kiwanuka”.
I’m really looking forward to all the upcoming shows for the rest of 2019 and 2020.
I covered a few gigs with John Newman, with his classic powerful soul voice and great band. He really puts on a great show.
I did a couple of dates with Raleigh Ritchie. I was already blown away by this mans lyrics before working with him. But his stage show is something else. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such powerful energy on stage. He really gives everything. With his very cool band. I gig not to be missed.
Big thanks to Joey Jowitt. Foh, TM and all round top bloke.
Another really fun tour. Great crew, great band. Alfie really showed his versatility on this tour, thirties jazz, folk, country, 60s and 70s soul, and knocking Bring Him Home out of the park every show. With some great special guests and the Hattie Briggs trio doing an amazing set as support every night.
Also a big thank you to Oli at Gibson guitars for all your help.
Always a pleasure working for Alfie. Can’t wait for the next one.
I had the pleasure of running backline on a small run of gigs and some studio work for Dave Keuning (The Killers Guitarist) with his solo material. It’s gonna be big.
This years telly shows I worked on included Michael Macintyre big show and the X-factor. Artists include Paloma Faith, Liam Payne and Michael Bublé.
Thank you Mr Henry.
A great evening with Suggs and Friends for a great cause. Pancreatic cancer uk. A lot of fun with Suggs and his band and top performances by the amazing Emile Sandé and the legendary UB40
A great singer songwriter with an amazing band, at a very cool sunny festival.
I love it when I get paid to work on gigs that I would have paid to go and see.
This was very much my sought of thing. Top crew too.
