Second Album and Shetland Story

My second ‘studio’ album is finally released on all good streaming platforms today.

Recorded between Scotland, Shetland, Iceland, and the Faroes between 2019-2022.

In other news, my short story ‘Less Than Baleful’ was included in Northlink’s Onward Voyager anthology, you can read the story on page 27 of this handy downloadable PDF >>> Here <<<
