April Open Mic Tour

I miss gigging. I used to do it all the time, and now I just do it in tour bursts with big gaps in between. This is a privilege, and great if you’re writing a new album, but if you’re busy promoting an existing one then not so good. Whatever happened to heading out the door with a guitar on your back and not knowing what happens next?

I’ve decided to spend April gigging up and down the country playing open mics and little acoustic nights.

- I want to reconnect with playing live
- It’ll help promote the full band tour in May
- I love finding cool songwriters and new music. I’ll ask ones I like to open the gigs we do in May
- I want to have an adventure. I like adventures.

If you know of or run little acoustic gigs and there’s a slot free in April just leave a comment or email me. Hopefully I can come play it? The only condition is that if I’ve got a big gig near you in May, I can’t promote your night. That wouldn’t be fair on the people who’ve booked the May gigs. Sound alright?

Let me know! And hope to see you somewhere in the UK in April and May. Big love
