"Morning Light" is the follow up single to my last release "Never Back Down" which received radio play and plaudits from BBC Radio 2's Dermot O'Leary, Bob Harris, BBC Introducing Alan Raw, BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson and Hattie Pearson at XFM. This led to myself and the band being invited down to BBC Radio London for a live session and interview. "Never Back Down" also received my first US radio airplay on KX 93.5FM Laguna Beach California.

The music video for “Never Back Down” won “People’s Choice Award 2013” at The 27th Leeds International Film Festival, beating 31 other artist entries and gaining 25% of the votes cast.

Sharing the Stage with myself and my band are 2 very special guests. A band and a solo artist I have gigged with many times before and I am very happy to have them join us on 26th March!
