We were all delighted with the news that RM Hubbert (or Hubby as his friends call him) was the winner of this year’s Scottish Album of The Year Award with his last album ‘Thirteen Lost & Found’. Working with him on our track ‘Half Light’ has been one of the highlights of recent years and I’ve absolutely loved performing it with him as often as we’ve been able ever since.
With collaborators including Aidan Moffat, Alasdair Roberts, Hanna Tuulikki and Luke Sutherland to name but a few, it is a very special album full to the brim with the most diverse of voices but always grounded by the unique sound that is Hubby’s exquisite guitar playing.

RM Hubbert and I have been playing numerous shows together recently allowing us to play our song ‘Half Light’ which is included on his new album ‘Thirteen Lost & Found’. We decided a little while ago that it was much too much fun to stop short, so have set about putting a UK tour together which kicks off early September.
I’ll be playing a solo acoustic set, with quite a few new songs thrown in. We’ll also have an exclusive 6-track EP available at the shows, featuring new and previously unavailable recordings from both RM Hubbert and myself.
