New single ‘Snakeskin’ out today!

The second single to be taken from my forthcoming album ‘The Pivot On Which The World Turns’ is ‘Snakeskin’ and it’s out today.

This is the first song on the album and began to grow in my head in the moments after my father died. It’s the song that depicts my role as ‘daughter’; I pivot through all the other roles I might play in a given day as the album progresses but this is the opening.

I filmed the video for ‘Snakeskin’ alone at my dad’s graveside one very cold but sunny day in January. You can watch it here:

I recorded the song with John Parker live at Three Circles Studio; I think this was our second take. And now it comes with love from me to you. X

New single ‘Back Of Your Hand’ out today!

My Americana / blues-inspired new single ‘Back Of Your Hand’ is out today, along with its accompanying video — which premières tonight.

I filmed this (with help from my husband Mick) in my wonderful local pub, The Blue Moon in Cambridge. The song itself is set in the legendary but now closed One Two Six, the Clapham Junction pub where Mick and I met in 1998. It is a composite of a few nights that happened there.

It goes live at 9.15pm BST. Join me beforehand at 9pm for a quick live stream from the pub (on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube or Linkedin) before it drops!
