Last night I played at Centrespace gallery to celebrate Howling Owl’s 3rd Birthday , alongside Falling Stacks and Oliver Wilde.
And it was great.

I’m so excited to be invited back for a second year to play at Southampton’s Pulse Festival.
After having such a great time last year, i am very keen to see what is in store this year.
The line up has a lot to offer, with The Correspondents (who are a personal fav of mine), Fun Lovin’ Criminals, and of course a tea drinking Mr Scruff! The local ciders, ales, food from local restaurants also prove for an indulgent weekend!
I’m playing on the court yard stage on Saturday night, with a full live audio/visual set!
Southampton is my home town so I’m even more pumped for this show..AND rumour has it, my gran is going to be there!!!!
A night of electronic music at Bristol’s trendy flan selling-organic beer drinking -sofa sitting-vintage wearing- tea shop, the Birdcage on Corn Street.
There are three acts playing, myself, Jilk and T-toe. Jilk and Ttoe have known and worked with London’s underground electronica label Bit-Phalanx for many years, and it was actually Jilk himself who spotted me at a Drawn Recordings night (funnily enough sharing the stage with T-toe), who asked me if i’d be interested in coming on board. Last October saw the first label release I’ve done which was through Bit-Phalanx. Essentially this night is three electronica artists playing out for no real reason other than because we love gigging. We are so excited to all be on the same show for once, (as we are endlessly supporting each other at live shows), so expect a lot of energy, a lot of foot tapping come body moving, and i’ll be there with Jason who provides mesmerising visuals to my live shows.
Its £3 which means, for those of you not so great at maths, £1 per artist.
I feel this is a reasonable deal, and if you feel otherwise, perhaps you should come in and heckle?
I was excited to play another IWD event this year, on Wednesday I played a gig in London with a largely female line up. One of my first gigs years ago was an IWD event, which actually was the first i’d heard of, or really noticed what IWD was about. It’s now become important for me to think about what it means to me, and raise awareness to support the cause.
“International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies…
Many from a younger generation feel that ‘all the battles have been won for women’ while many feminists from the 1970’s know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy… The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics…
However, great improvements have been made. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so the tone and nature of IWD has, for the past few years, moved from being a reminder about the negatives to a celebration of the positives.
Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more…”
