During the 2020 COVID 19 lockdown I couldn’t tour so I started making guitar pedals. They came out really well. So I made a lot more guitar pedals and then I started a new company. For more details please visit – http://www.vintageflake.com
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.
