Just thought I'd let you know that there is a free download available of Crackerjack here.

Why today? And why Crackerjack? Well, it was three years ago that I finally worked up enough courage to take the "ridiculously stupid" decision to resign and to try and make a record. And Crackerjack was the song that I wrote in tribute to the colleagues and friends that made up the "Crackerjack Crowd"; with whom I'd have a drink on a Friday night in R.I.S.C, and whom, it has to be said, continue to show great genorosity, interest and support in what I'm doing.

It's been a long haul making At TheWater's Edge. There's no doubt I underestimated how long it would take and things haven't gone particularly smoothly but it's finished now and I'm pleased (maybe even a little bit proud!) of how it has turned out. As to whether anybody else is going to like it, well of course, that's a different matter and we'll just have to wait and see.

At The Water's Edge won't "officially" be available in the digital shops and on CD until early November. However it is available for download here (where it'll be a bit cheaper than the digital shops anyway).

Hope you like it!

With Best Wishes,


Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.

Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
