So -  welcome to the new look Sculpture_Music site!

I wanted to simplify things back a little and make everything a little cleaner. Im no web designer so its probably a bit of a cop-out, but its alot easier to manage this way.


Its always tricky talking too much about upcoming projects for fear of jinxing it all, but at the moment I'm working on new material which is slowly coming together. This is more a studio / solo project, but that said I'm very excited to have the support of producer Mark Tucker who has worked with the likes of PJ Harvey and Afro Celt Sound System. Mark's a lovely bloke - we share very similar music tastes - and he'll be bringing his experience to bear in tightening everything up and getting it all coherent.

No mean feat.


I've also realised recently that pushing to play live as much as possible really isnt where I'm at right now - much as I've enjoyed working with the lovely John Shaw on bass for the last two releases - and we've had some really memorable gigs over the last few years -  I'm not planning to gig much this year.

Unless Mr Eavis calls of course. 


That said, I'll be playing a short set for friends who organise the Altitude VF Festival in May, and also in the French Alps in August, (which Im particularly excited about - details on the live page) but I suspect that will be it for 2017. I'm just happy to concentrate on the music for now, for anyone who might want to listen to it.


I'm still really enjoying my producer/presenter work with Balcony TV Exeter, and its hard to believe its been 2 years since we got it off the ground. Considering I was planning to give it to some bright young thing from the uni media dept after 6 months, Im now a bit reluctant to let it go! Where else would I get the chance to record, mix and master artists like Joss Stone and Will And The People? :-)


So, yeah. Thats about it right now - Check Facebook which will be regularly updated with news on the new album -  more soon. xx
