Huw Stephens play on BBC Radio One

Nice little piece of news I almost let slip unnoticed... had Isaac (from my band This Wicked Tongue) played on Huw Stephens' Radio One show last week, along with a snippet of "And I'm Trying" from Cut The Tent. Hopefully the first of many! Here's the link to the show - it'll be up till about 10th December: Huw Stephens BBC Radio One And here's a spotify link to Isaac
Gearing up for 2015!!!!

The new This Wicked Tongue album is almost there - we're onto the final vocal takes and then it'll be onto the mixing and mastering... watch this space!

My solo album Cut The Tent has been an amazing success - I played most of the songs solo at Canadian Music Week and most recently played them at Brownstock with the band and we're close to running out of the first batch of CDs. If you can't get your hands on a CD, then you can download it just about anywhere. Stay in touch for more news on that front - I'll shortly be releasing a Youtube video with a difference for the song First Born from the album. Meanwhile though I've put up a handful of new covers - I just love learning new songs! Here's my cover of

 Every Other Freckle by Alt-J for starters!

So that brings us to the rest of this year and on to 2015. I'm booking both solo and band gigs right through till the end of next year. 2014 has already been awesome with the solo release of Cut The Tent, Canadian Music Week in Toronto and some awesome festivals such as Lakefest, Mappfest, Deerstock and Brownstock. It's been a year where recording of the two albums has been the main priority, along with a handful of collaborations. And with the two albums to back us up we're looking for plenty of radio play, gigs and great reviews in 2015!

This Wicked Tongue live at Mappfest, Malvern 21st June 2014

Don't be confused, this is Tina in her other guise, her band This Wicked Tongue, at Mappfest in Malvern back in June. Mappfest started up as a simple birthday party for local good guy Andy Mapp but has since blossomed into a sizeable open air fundraiser for Acorns Children's Hospice. These two videos were filmed and produced by Welland Man - have a look at his channel for more great acts from Mappfest as well as several other events.
