As you may have noticed, a lot of my videos feature a ukulele – but a lot of different ukulele’s have appeared in my videos over the years! Today’s vlog is just a quick look at the various different ukulele’s that make up my Ukulele Collection and some of the funny behind the scene’s stories that go along with each instrument!
Last week I mentioned that I’d written the music and lyrics for a brand new musical called Between Us that I’ve been working on with my good friend Elizabeth Carter. This didn’t happen overnight, I’ve been involved with the project for over a year at this point. However, last week was a big week for the show as we managed to put on our very first production of the show at The Mermaid Theatre in London! Continue reading →
Can you believe it? I’ve been making weekly videos for a whole month and I’ve got no signs of stopping soon! Since it’s a lot to take in it’s understandable if you missed one of my videos so here’s a quick rundown of all the videos I released in March. Now would be the perfect time to catch up!
1.) PERFECT – ED SHEERAN
My weekly video challenge got off to a great start with the release of Ed Sheeran’s brand new album Divide. I chose to record a version of Perfect – one of the new songs on the album – which I managed to release less than 24 hours after the original was released. This song has a slight 50s vibe to it so I was in my element and I even managed to sneak in an accordion to the intro! Continue reading →
This week I’m taking a break from the cover songs and music videos to tell you about one of the cool things I’ve been up to recently. As you’ve probably guessed from the title of this post, I’m in a feature film! Somebody actually put me in a proper film that’s in cinemas and everything!
All in all I only did a few days of filming so it’s not like I have a huge part, but it was great to be involved with all the same. Surprisingly, despite only having a very small part, I got invited to the world premiere of the film at the Odeon in Leicester Square last week! As it’s a small British independent film I assumed it would be a fairly low key event and the world premiere would actually be more of a private screening for the cast and crew. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived though, to find that all the stops had been pulled out for the event and I even ended up on the Red Carpet! (Well it was a blue carpet but you get the idea)
This week’s video is more of a Vlog where I’ll be talking all about the premiere and sharing some stories from the set during filming – namely the odd looks you get being dressed in costume as a Nazi while filming on location and also the troubles of getting to your hotel late at night on a Sunday in the middle of nowhere!
For those interested the film is called Another Mother’s Son and is a World War II drama about the Nazi invasion of Jersey and the Channel Islands. It’s based on the true story of Louisa Gould who took in and hid a Russian prisoner of war on the island who managed to escape from the Germans. It’s out in cinemas today (24th March 2017) and really recommend you see it if you can – and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it!
You may know that one of my favourite things in this world is Superhero Movies – in fact I love them so much that I even made my own once. In recent years they’ve really exploded into the mainstream audience and now every year the big film releases usually multiple superhero movies.
There are two giants when it comes to superhero movies: MARVEL and DC Comics, but which is better? Well since Batman Vs Superman and Captain America: Civil War are both about to hit the box office (and are both superhero movies that pitt allies against each other) I figured I’d put these two franchises together to see who comes out on top… at least in my opinion.

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and an awesome New Year. I’m back from the Christmas break with a brand new Vlog where I’m talking about my New Year’s Resolutions and the various goals I want to achieve this year.
Hi everyone, so this is my first attempt at filming a Vlog! It’s definitely not as easy as it looks and it took me three attempts to get right. I have a bit of an Update regarding my upcoming EP “Regeneration” and rather than write out a big long Blog Post for my website, I figured it would be much easier (and more fun) to film a Vlog and tell you face to face… or rather face to screen.
