As usual this post is loooong overdue, but what are you gonna do about it? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Anyway at the end of April I went on tour with a bunch of my buddies and the wonderful Ella Henderson, in support of Take That’s ‘III’ Tour, which comprised of about 40 UK & Ireland arena shows across 2 months, and it was awesome. We had the best time and played some really great shows. The crowds responded really well to Ella and the whole Take That crew were lovely, so in all it was a big success. Here’s a shot of us together before our last show in Newcastle:
We had a bit of time off after the tour and have since been doing a few festivals here and there, including V-Fest last weekend which was really great. Hopefully the footage from our rainy (but awesome) Chelmsford set will surface soon, as I think it was one of our best shows yet! We’ve got a handful more festivals between now and October which will be when we start rehearsing and getting prepared for Ella’s first ever headline tour, which we’re all pretty excited for.
Almost forgot – as well as continuing to play with Ella I’ve also managed to work with a couple of different artists this summer too; most notably the talented dude that is Aston Merrygold, who is a really cool guy with an insanely good voice. I did an acoustic session with him for 4Music where we played his latest single, which you can check out below:
As well as this I started doing some small gigs with a new singer named Claudia Kane, who signed a development deal with Sony a while ago and is getting ready to put out some really killer music. I definitely recommend you check her out at www.claudiakane.com!
Next up for me is Fusion Fest with Ella so fingers crossed it doesn’t rain in Birmingham this weekend…
