Hi there! Just got back from a crazy week of gigs followed by a trip to Berlin! Thought I’d put this up here. A while back I did a session for Rosie Tee who’d been writing some cool music merging pop and classical genres. The album is coming out soon, but in the meantime she gave Brum Radio a sneak peak of the first single off the album. Also be sure to check out my Live Dates which I have just updated with lots of new and exciting  gigs.

The interview with her and the track is around the 12 minute mark:
