I’m smiling from ear to ear today….. what an awesome group of musicians to be mentioned along side! Listen to the call of ‘The Juke’ and check them all out!
Well, here it is! The first official album review has just gone live over at indie band guru!
I’m always a little nervous about reviews and this one was no exception….A huge thanks to Indie Band Guru and extra special thanks to the brilliant James ‘The Juke’ Wilson.
‘FELL FOR THE WORLD’ SEES THE WELCOMED RETURN OF RAINY…….
After 12 years and many roads I am proud to announce that my new album entitled ‘Fell For The World’ is now available on CD in a glorious 6 panel wallet with lyric booklet and on Download.
It is also available to buy from Made on a Hill. The website home of my various other projects.
I can’t wait to see where these songs lead me……
I am SO excited to announce that the venue for my album launch in September will be the awesome New Bristol Brewery. www.newbristolbrewery.co.uk
The tap room of this pioneering Bristol craft brewery will play host to the event on 29/09/18 with sweet vibes and tasty beers a plenty!
If you don't want to miss updates on tickets then be sure to sign up to my mailing list and you'll be the first to know when they are released.
I am very happy to announce the meeting of two aspects of my creative explorations!
As some of you may know I started Made on a Hill with my partner Sacha in 2014. We make Pressed Flower lanterns from upcyled glass - Original Artworks - Wooden hair accessories and jewelry from reclaimed wood and lots more. Head on over and have yourself a browse around!
It's a bit of a milestone for me to be re-releasing this album 10 years after its first release. The new redesigned packaging is printed on 100% recycled card with an 8 page lyric booklet included.
I recently gave an interview with the brilliant James Wilson aka 'The Juke' on his awesome website My Random Jukebox. Follow the link below to read the full interview...
My Random Jukebox is a treasure trove of unsigned musicians carefully curated by the man himself. James is a true music fan and his website is perfect for anyone looking to keep their ear to the ground for new tunes.
I am super excited to announce that I am back in the home studio ( after what feels like way too long ) to record a new album.
The tracks are coming together and I'll be releasing more details here soon .....
Thousand miles the wiser and Dirt Road have been chosen to book end the first two episodes of SRL Networks webseries Memoirs of the last demon.

From now until Christmas I’m offering signed Cds with the option of adding a personal message.
You can order ‘Hold on to the rhythm’ and/or ‘What it all boils down to’ on CD from my website link below and a Cd will be packaged by my own fair hand and sent out within a day of your purchase.
The last posting date to make it in time for Christmas is 19/12/13 for UK
( international postings are listed at the bottom of this post )
If you would like a signed Cd and a personal note then simply click the ‘add’ link under your address on the ‘Review your information’ page ( where it says: Add special instructions to seller ‘add’) and type the message you’d like me to include.
If you would like to give someone a download of the album or track rather than risk that notoriously ‘patchy’ Christmas post then the good folks at at Bandcamp have helped us do just that!
Simply select the album or track you wish to gift and click “Send as Gift” (below the Buy Now link), enter the recipient’s email address, add an optional personal message, and then check out as always. Your friend will get an email containing a link to the high-quality download including a PDF download with full lyrics etc, as well as instant, unlimited mobile access to the music via the free Bandcamp app.
Merry Christmas Y’all
