The Key Broke off Clean in the Lock
Keep Your Expectations Low


The Impossible to Pick Up EP is my third collaboration with producer Josiah Manning (currently riding high in the UK as a member of the Kris Barras Band) . Josiah lends his abundant musical talents to this record too, and his bass, keyboard and percussion skills can be heard throughout.

Also lending his skills to this record: mandolin master Davey Dodds, former lead singer of prog-rock band Red Jasper (and writer of the famous song 'Magpie', amongst many others). Davey crops up for a mandolin cameo at the end of the track 'The Key Broke off Clean in the Lock'.

This record had a slightly longer path to completion than my last two, and was inspired by a series of events both significant and mundane that took place in my life outside of music. It also represents my desire to expand my sound into territory that I've not previously explored.

All four of these songs, in case you're wondering, are regular fixtures in my live sets.

Those who know me know I don't particularly enjoy labelling my music, but I understand how necessary it is, especially in a forum like this. So I hope you enjoy my latest acoustic record - it's alt-folk, perhaps, or new-folk, that strays into psyche-folk here and there. Or perhaps it's simply blues folk with added groove and strangeness. I'll let you decide.

Thanks for listening!
