the year 2011 in a nutshell

This time last year I told myself I wanted to play live at least once every week, I wanted to record my first solo album and I wanted to go on an acoustic tour.

It's the last day in 2011 and almost 90 gigs later, I am reflecting and thankful for doing all of the above and many more.

here are some of the highlights

In February, I was asked to be the resident host of Portobello Acoustic Sessions

On the 30th of March, I was made redundant

In May, I started recording my album

In July, I released the radio edit of one of my songs Inspiration

In August, I started my Pen Voyage Acoustic tour that included playing at the Edinburgh Fringe, Greenbelt Festival and a week in Toronto.

On the 30th of September, my album Pen Voyage Chapter 1; Singing for Change was officially released.

I spent the last three months of the year, promoting the album, playing at the most amazing venues and meeting the most amazing & inspiring people.

Thanks for all the love and support throughout the year and I hope you have had an amazing year. I look forward to 2012 expecting the best and best only.
