Second album and Alabama Shakes news

Second album and Alabama Shakes news

In Autumn last year, I returned to the studio to commence work on my second album – I’m excited to say those sessions are now nearing their conclusion, with full details to be announced imminently.

I’ll also be supporting my old touring pals Alabama Shakes across Europe, including two hometown dates at London’s Brixton Academy, where you can expect to hear the first fruits from my second album, as well as stuff from Home Again. More info here:

Kids Club Kampala - Ewafe Project | Raising The Rest

Kids Club Kampala - Ewafe Project | Raising The Rest

Kids Club Kampala is something that means a lot to me for obvious reasons, one being that i'm a British-born Ugandan, but another being that it was inspiring for me to see young people start something completely selfless and from scratch, and achieve so much with just hard work and determination. Olivia Barker and Corrie Fraser who are the founders of Kids Club Kampala do so much for the children out in Uganda and have focused so much of their energy and time being committed to the children and their charity. That really encouraged me to refocus a lot of my energy and see how i could help in anyway through the opportunities I've been given.

Last year myself, Olivia and Corrie put on a gig to raise money for something called the 'Ewafe Project'. The Ewafe Project, which is part of Kids Club Kampala, specifically deals with housing abandoned children in the slums of Kampala. Kids Club Kampala began raising money to build an orphanage for the children. The Ewafe Project got as far as only needing a roof to the building to finish off their home. The cost of the roof was £10,000. So, last year we put on a concert called 'The Ewafe Proect: Raising The Roof'. I asked some singers and artists to come and help me play at the gig and we managed to raise just over £10,000. The target was reached and the building was completed.

The night went so well that we decided to make it an annual event to keep the home running. The orphanage needs money to buy food for the children, supply transport and to keep houseparents there. Money would help the safety of the children, for example building a fence for their protection. Kids Club also hope to expand on the building with some of the land they've managed to accumulate. This will allow for a proper kitchen, a dining room, a classroom and additional bedrooms. The money we raise this year will help pay for those things. I'm really excited to say that we're having our 2nd annual 'Ewafe Project' gig: The Ewafe Project 'Raising the Rest' on Saturday the 2nd of May.

It's a very exciting lineup this year with some very special guests making an appearance on the night for some intimate and soulful music. I hope you can join us.

Jack Johnson Tour Dates Cancelled

I'm very sorry to have pulled out of the tour with Jack Johnson. I was very much looking forward to playing all those wonderful venues and hanging out some more with Jack and the rest of his team. I've been advised to rest by the doctor and i think it's best so that i'm in good shape to hit the road again once the next album's done and released. I want to thank Jack and his team for being so understanding and i hope the time will come around when we can play together again.
