Massive Attack Blue Lines

I’m excited to announce i’ll be playing a show to mark 25 years since Massive attack’s album Blue Lines was released.  I’ll be collaborating with Jilk as part of a one off performance where we will reimagine four of the tracks from the album, at Bristol’s independent cinema The Cube.  More info below..

BBC Introducing in the West presents a night of music, spoken word and film, celebrating the influence of Massive Attack’s seminal album Blue Lines on the culture of modern Bristol. Featuring new local musicians Andy Oliveri, Jilk, Kayla Painter and ThisisDA as well as spoken word artists Sally Jenkinson, Stephanie Kempson and Vanessa Kisuule, the gig will take place the night before Massive Attack’s live return to the city. There will also be an exclusive showing of a BBC documentary on the making of Blue Lines. Oh, and Sam Bonham and Richard Pitt from BBC Introducing in the West will be broadcasting the whole thing!

New Release: Drones

Today marks the release of my new track Drones through Turnstile Music.  Whilst I was finishing writing the track I had some ideas of how I wanted the video to look.  Those ideas developed, and I kept feeding them until it grew into something coherent.

So then, I decided to take the role of being a director in the video.  I had such strong feelings and thoughts about how the video should appear, it was the only logical step.  Drones is the first ever music video I have directed, and it was certainly a challenge.  Without the help and support of Jason Baker it would have not been possible at all.  Jason, Mandi and Flavien were a great team to work with and I owe them a lot for helping me bring my vision to life.

It brings me so much pleasure to release this track and video out into the world!!

Glastonbury Set Times

Last week Glastonbury announced it set times.

I’m really pleased to say i’ll be finishing the festival off by closing the Glade stage at Glastonbury 2016!!

I’ll be playing at 01.30 Sunday night following Plaid.  Some of you will know I gigged with them last year, so i’m chuffed to be on the same bill as them again.  I’m a big fan of their work and the Glade vibe in general so I couldn’t be happier with the invitation.

Jason and I will be brining the full dual screen show to Glastonbury, which will be the first festival it’s been to and WE CANT WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE!

Here are the timings from the Glasto site, please excuse the typo, i’m not on at 0045, it’s definitely 01.30, after Plaid..

Glastonbury Festival! and dates…

12380926_10154792247120620_1702840273_o

It is AMAZING to finally share this with everyone as I found out in January that i’d be playing Glastonbury Festival.

I am particularly excited to play this festival, not because of Adele.., or because of it being full of lots and lots of people, but mainly because when I told my Dad he stopped dead on the phone and when completely quiet, and when I told my mum she shrieked so much I think my earpiece in my phone broke.

Glastonbury is a great festival, one of many great festivals, but it is the only one that spanned generations and countries enough for my Grandma to be congratulating me, knowing the importance of it, as well as my relatives in Australia. and for that experience, I am really really grateful. All of the hard work my family have put into supporting what I do, and I’ve finally been able to turn around and say, i’m doing something which you can understand the cultural significance of. It’s a really bloody nice feeling.
