Vinyl Junkie out now!

April 20, 2015

I released my new album Vinyl Junkie on Record Store Day with the album launch at Vinyl Vault in Cheltenham - my favourite shop and location for the 'Vinyl Junkie' single video shoot. My friend and inspiration for the title track, Richard Kilbey, shot the video featured here. I performed five songs from the album with Joe and Chris including 'Fire Fire'. Funnily enough as we were singing it a fire engine pulled up and all the kids who were watching climbed on board - it was surreal but apt! The album is available to download from Bandcamp in your choice of high quality digital file or buy the CD and receive a free limited edition Vinyl Junkie badge! Wow! The album was supposed to be issued in limited edition vinyl but alas it proved far too costly. If Vinyl Junkie hits number one I will release a vinyl version next year!
