Huge thanks to all the lovely people who’ve been coming to my gigs so far this year. It’s been great fun touring with all the new instruments, including drum, piano and electric guitar (on loan from Roger Luxton, Ralph Houston and Michael Chapman respectively), and I’m working on figuring out how and to what extent I can translate the new setup to my USA tour this autumn ...
The new album is still getting some very nice attention in the press: just in the past month, Kansas City based music blog Floorshime Zipper Boots included me in their “Top 10 Artists of 2018 So Far,” Australia’s Green Left Weekly put If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous at No. 1 on their list of “10 new albums that sum up the state of the world,” and it was Album Of The Month for June on UK blog Across The Universal Soundscape, which described it as “an absolutely stunning album. Already an early contender for our AlbumOfTheYear!”
If you can make it to one of my upcoming shows, it would be great to see you there, and please do help spread the word if you can – I’m always looking for “street teamers” to help distribute posters and flyers, and am also immensely grateful for any shares, retweets and email forwards.
