about

"In short, if you like folk and folk punk, this is a brilliant piece of it, by one of our better singer-songwriters (i.e. one who actually has something worth saying). Actually, title track, 'Despite The Blackout', sums the feel of this album up perfectly: “Despite the blackout we’ll get through this, and these simple songs will be our searchlights.” Given the mood of the country, I can’t think of a better, or better timed sentiment than that right now."
- The 405 (Rating: 7/10)


Recently signed to London DIY label "Corporate Records" to release third album "Despite the Blackout". A six track acoustic folk record recorded between 2010 and the start of 2011. Backing band "The Renegade Folk Punk Band" features 5 members and sounds like a "punk rock ceilidh".
