TOLMEN CENTRE GIG  

NEW YEAR GIG FOR EVERYONE!  SAT 2ND JANUARY 

 

Let's start the new year off with music, merriment and maybe mulled wine.

 

Join me and the band as we play a LIVE NEW YEAR GIG! from the Tolmen centre -

a beautiful theatre in Cornwall. We know a lot of folks won't be able to get out to a gig for a while so we thought it would be nice to start the year off with some gigging good vibes -  there will be a live audience which should make it feel even more like a night out.


Watch from the comfort of your home - glam up, pyjamas whatever you feel! Be lovely if you can make it. 


It's all professionally streamed this time so should be a good sound a picture 😉

MOUSE 

MOUSE, to those who knew, was a musical duo we formed few years back.

But to some of us it was a bit more - it was a time - a sense of raw freedom and hope, it was the smell of woodsmoke drifting through the festival in the early hours.

It was late night gigs in the green fields in a beduin tent, on stage in the small hours with a brandy hot chocolate. 

It was singing by the lake as the sun came up.

It was Nick Marshall's haunting guitar wizardry that I had the pleasure to sing and play with.

It was travelling round with the small world stage, squat parties and buddhist festivals, growing and learning on the way.

It was touring around Ireland with Damien Rice, the van's clutch falling through the floor on the way home.

It was open mic nights, it was the grey horse and all the inspiring musicians we grew and made music with. 

Then it was bigger gigs, the album release, managers, music industry and all of that tangled world of business… Well, Mouse felt a little small and lost in that world.…

So it crawled away quietly and Mouse became just a whisper again...

But over the years people have been asking about Mouse again.....so…..

shhhh…………..We are re releasing Mouse Tales!

There won’t be any fanfare or PR, only the whisper that you may, if you feel, pass on to others who may like Mice.

You can download it from us and play it whenever you wish to time travel away to a better time - to remember our hopes and dreams, to reignite them maybe - or give them space to be. 

 

EEEK

LIVE GIG: 

OCTOBER 2020

 

Green Painted Wreath

Our facebook live gigs over lockdown became such a treat for us to play and the feedback we had from all of you was incredible. It seemed we really formed a community!

So bearing in mind the world around us is still in a bit of tangle, it feels like we could all do with some of these gigs over the autumn and winter!

So we shall be inviting you into my new living room.... with a grand piano, guitars, special guests and roaring fire.... dates will be released soon...ish....x

Exciting news- the feature film we made last year The Tape is finished. We went up to the colour grading suite in London to finish it, and it was wonderful to see it looking and sounding so fantastic on a big screen. 

Most enormous thanks to all at Goldcrest, Mary, Laura and everyone who has made this project come to life.

We are now in plans for distribution and screenings etc.  and we will keep you posted about the 2021 release....
