Earlier this year I was invited to speak and perform as part of a TEDx University of Manchester event, watch it here:

Here’s my new video for ‘Simon Says Dance’, which some friends of mine made. They’ve done a brilliant job. Thank you to everyone who came along to hold a camera / dance / move lights about etc. It was a great day. Clash premiered it yesterday, but you can also watch it below or on Vimeo.
Some lovely people did some remixes which are available to download now on my bandcamp… they might be your cup of tea if you fancy checking them out.

… When I can say, without argument that “my album is out”. Yep, after a lot of hard work and love… Dancing is out in the world. You can listen to and buy the album from my shop on vinyl, CD, digital or in a bundle with a Dancing canvas shopping bag.
If you prefer to go into a shop, you could do worse than Piccadilly Records in Manchester or Jumbo in Leeds. Between them they have 50 CDs of my next single, ‘Simon Says Dance‘ (including exclusive remixes) to give away free with initial orders.
Alongside my summer tour (details here), I’ll be at Beacons Festival and LATITUDE! I do love a good festival. If you’re going to either perhaps we can have a dance or a piece of cake if our paths cross. I hope they have a Pieminster pie stall. That’s always the highlight of any festival isn’t it!?

My website is finally up and running! Here you will find all the information you will need to track me down or listen to my music. You may also find other interesting things which you didn’t know you were even interested in until you found them.
I am doing some shows over the summer time, check out my live page for details. Also, I persist in my writing, collaborating and making bits of artwork and sound collections. I’ve gotten into taking photographs recently too. Anyhow, that’s all by the by… please have a look at my site, sign up to the newsletter if you wish, and you can even buy a record or two if you’d like…. my most recent singles ‘The Last Battle’ and ‘Heart‘ are available as ‘pay what you like’ downloads on my bandcamp page.
