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!!
