I had the pleasure last night of hearing the incredible Nick Knox perform at Queens. A couple of local filmmakers are making a documentary on Nick, so the performance was filmed. It’s been a few years since I saw Nick play. I was astonished at what I was hearing – Nick’s music is thrilling, strange and utterly unique. Imagine Rammstein’s tour bus, with a troupe of Tibetan throat singers on board, crashing into the middle of a Bach recital and you can begin to imagine the sound. Nick was performing as part of Queens Got Talent night, organized by the indomitable Tahu.

BBC Documentary

Got the news two weeks ago, Ollie Lucks & Max Bellamy two accomplished local filmmakers were successful in their application for a BBC Knowledge Grant: to make a documentary about my music, life and story.

Very very excited & a little nervous. It could be an amazing leap forward for me, with wide exposure for my work.

Many parts of my journey have been excruciatingly sad & how candid to be about my struggles on camera is still something I am carefully deliberating, but overall am super stoked.

With the rough cut due in August, and the finished in October there is some time pressure.

The opportunity to share my music & story, working with two very talented friends, with exposure on such a prestigious media organization has a little ‘pinch me, I’m dreaming’ sensation about it, but am just going to ride it.

To all the amazing support & encouragement from so many friends and admirers – Thank You.

Music Video

Have just completed shooting my first music video with a great team. A single shot take spiralling around me sitting at a grand piano on a theatre stage. Probably in Black & White. Pretty Excited.

The song is the single off the upcoming album. Called ‘Resuscitate’ it’s a track about fragility, beauty & damage in a sometimes hard & cold world.

Will keep you posted on its release.
