I am best-known as a singer of folk and traditional songs, notably from Scotland, but latterly a wide range of Americana too. My life and musical journeys span many years, places, and genres – folk, trad, blues, country, jazz, rock and pop. This reflects in my arrangements across, and sometimes fusing, genres. If a song's got soul, it's worth singing!

New single
