bit part in brand new Tom Robinson album

I'm delighted and very proud to say I was asked to do some vocals for this song and a couple of others from the all new Tom Robinson album, Only The Now.   I'm sure many of you will know Tom Robinson for his championing of new music on his weekly BBC6Music shows and for his world wide chart hits in the 70's and 80's.

His first solo album in nearly two decades this is hot off the press as we speak and here I am in the video above, Mighty Sword of Justice, featuring Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy (not in vid), Gerry Diver (who also produced the album) and the twinkling steel pan of Frank Rollock.  The song is in support of Justice Alliance and about recent government changes and cuts to legal aid.

Shipping Songs on BBCiPlayer

I had written a song myself (Shipping Song from album Hidden Seam) musing on the extraordinary sounds of some these far off places.  So when I was asked by production company Smooth Operations to take part in a documentary looking at the Shipping Forecast from the perspective of artists, poets, musicians and all the rest of us who aren't sailors but love it nonetheless, of course I jumped at the chance.  What a brilliant thing to do I thought, and it was.  Huge thanks to producer Lorna Skingly and all who agreed to be interviewed and took part.  BBC Radio 4 first aired it on 23rd April.  It has been repeated since than and was given Documentary Of The Week status on their site, yipeee!  If you haven't caught it you can still listen again here...http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05r401h

Dead Rats, Gallows And Experimental Film

An exploration of Tyburn Gallows and its history the ace Dead Rat Orchestra have teamed up with filmmaker James Holcombe to produce 'Tyburnia'.  I am singing a re-construction of a ballad they unearthed from the 1600's called 'In Defence Of Women' which has fantastic verses, feminism alive and well from way back!  I shall be playing a short set ahead of their performance at Apiary Studios 29th May and look forward to singing that song during the film.

The soundtrack featuring aforementioned song is now available from here...
