I was at the Ben Folds Masterclass before the Belfast Gig. I got some advice direct from Ben on writing original Music and how "cover band hell" being useful for songwriting. Thanks to everyone involved.

I've recently been playing with The Red Hot Roosters all over the country. From Jerry Lee Lewis to Jame Brown tracks in the show, they always put on a good night.

Thought I'd try an OKGO cover. They're one of my favourites. Let me know what you think. Like share and all that. If you want.

Earlier with Jools Holland

05:40

I was front row at a little Jools Holland event at the China Exchange London. He'd words of wisdom passed down from the likes of Ray Charles and gave an inspiring talk about being unique and honest with your music. 

I'm in London!

02:05


I've moved to London for a while.  I've been writing on real pianos that can be hired at a moments notice. Which is impossible in Belfast.


I played the piano Elton John left in St Pancras Station. It's pretty crazy that we've both played the same piano. #inspired

I met Amanda Palmer

13:59

Being a piano playing person I'm natural a crazy Amanda Palmer fan.
I got to see her at the 2 Belfast gigs last weekend. I even got my arm autographed... then tattooed... then reweeted by Amanda.

I'm all inspired now especially after listening to her audiobook "The Art of Asking". I think every indie artist should check it out. It's amazing.

My arm still hurts:



DID I TELL YOU I MET BEN FOLDS?

14:54

Since I'm a big Ben Folds fanboy I got his autograph tattooed on me. 
Still can't believe I ran into him in Dublin. 

I also got a little heart on my finger... cos why not.



...and I bought a T-Shirt.
