Re: Banana & Louie

Thanks Tonieee! I haven't been on here for ages (having a baby and all that innit!)

Just seen this and it warmed my cold librarian heart a little...that song means a lot to me.

I've just finished the next album. I think there will be a new A Fine Day for Sailing album out this summer too.

Re: A Fine Day For Sailing

Hi everyone, It kind of felt like the right time to bookend everything I've done in music for now. There are future musical projects already planned, but that's a different chapter.

I wonder if they'll like it a...

Life is good.
Thank you! (pm me your name and I'll send you a copy of the single too.) Congratulations by the way, I wish I had the bollocks to quit my job.

Re: A Fine Day For Sailing

Thanks guys. I really appreciate it. It's heartening to know there are such lovely people out there. It makes it all worth it. Who knows what the future holds but I'm sure I'll be doing something musical. It's in our bones isn't it? x

Re: A Fine Day For Sailing

Yeah it's true. Sadly it wasn't my decision really. I'm feeling really upset today, 'cause the band has basically been my life for four years. Trying to decide whether to pack it all in or keep making music. I've got the Banana and Louie project which I'm really proud of. Thanks for all your kindnes...

Banana & Louie

Hi everyone, A few of you will know that I'm doing an album with A Little Orchestra. We're calling it Banana and Louie (after Brian Wilson's dogs - I know, I'm predictable.) The album will be coming out in April/May, but we're having so much fun recording it I've set up a little blog: http://bananaa...
