Had a lovely little break in Santorini before embarking on a little Busking trip around UK and Ireland this month. Gonna be hitting Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin, Galway .. and everything in between. If anyone has any tips on things to do or advice on local Busking rules in these places let me know in the comments. You’re all bloody gorgeous x 📷 @lauriane_soleggiato
This is my favourite thing; my Gibson Hummingbird guitar. A few years ago I won $5000 in a songwriting contest in Australia for my song Fire. I had a multitude of debts to pay and places I ‘should have’ been putting my money.. I bought this instead. I’ve never regretted my decision.
I’m am SO grateful for music.

I’m back, and I’ve missed you. Seems I had to hit rock bottom, rebuild and learn some things. Can’t wait to share stories and songs with you again. Thank you for sticking with me ❤️ Photo: @trouble_lover
Gonna be out doing this in Berlin this week. You’ll find me somewhere on Museum Island or, the way things are going, a German prison! Thanks for the photo @will_wie_immer :)
Thanks for all the love guys. This quote from Nietzsche came up in a book I’m currently reading and it felt pretty apt: ‘He whose life has a why can bear almost any how’. Wishing you a glorious weekend x
Haven’t posted in a while because I tend not to post when things aren’t going well, but, ‘life’s not always butterflies and clear blue skies’ right!? Current location: Berlin. Busking has been terrible, not just here but everywhere I’ve been this year. Rules are getting more strict with regards to noise levels and the areas you can’t play. Here in Berlin they’ve literally built a police station next to the best spot! When I do find somewhere I really don’t do well which leads to me question myself as an artist which then leads to all the kind of thoughts about alternate career paths etc. All this is pushing me closer and closer to the exit door of a job that I’ve loved for many years. A job that has connected me with so many of YOU. Cuzn is not over by any means I just need to have a good think about the next step, I’ve got lots of new songs I want to get out to you guys but no money to record. Crowd-fund maybe? Looks like I’m going to have to start taking cover jobs again.. and maybe even shave my chest, get a couple of tribal tattoos and try out for X-Factor.. Suggestions in the comments please x
Come bathe with me today.. 2pm and 4:15 outside Bath Abbey x
