I am walking the Suffolk and Norfolk Coast Paths. May 21st through to June 3rd 2017.
While walking this epic journey I am also playing a series of gigs along the 135 miles route.
I’m rasing money for the RNLI, Nelsons Journey and great North Norfolk charity A Change Of Scene For Children based in North Norfolk.
I am a singer songwriter/musician based in Norwich.
Having just released my maritime themed new crowdfunded album “The Endless Shipwreck” I wanted to combine my passion for music alongside my passion for walking and the coastline and support your charity while doing so.
I am a reasonably well known independent artist and I’ve had recent airplay from BBC 6’s Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson also and plenty of support from some well known artist and entertainment figures.

I really feel this is a unique idea and hope you do too!
The plan is to complete the walk and play a series of gigs along the route starting in Woodbridge Suffolk and ending in Hunstanton on the North Norfolk Coast. Over a hundred miles on foot.
I tour as a solo acoustic artist playing my songs in their barest form with energy and passion and a healthy dose of humour and engagement with my audiences.
The new album has had some great reviews including 4 stars out of 5 in R2 Magazine “An engaging voice full of passion and a songbook full of affecting and thought provoking songs, insists that you not only tap your foot but punch the air”
Louder Than War 8 out of 10, Outline Online 9 out of 10.
The album features The Wonder Stuff violinist Erica Nockalls and is produced by world renowned producer/mixer Mark Freegard (Del Amitri, Manic Street Preachers, Kris Drever, Marillion)
