Debut Solo Album - The Unfinished Violin 

I'm very excited to announce my first solo album The Unfinished Violin is coming out on 21.09.18 on Island Records!

 

Inspired by my violin, carved but never finished by Richard Howard in 1915, I've made an album of instrumental music inspired by the Great War.

I'm enormously proud of it, and I hope you'll love it. You can pre-order it now and listen to track one, here.

Please spread the word, tell your friends and I can't wait to hear what you think of it.
