Love, Luck and Time Album Launch at Jimmy’s.

The album launch event for the new album Love, Luck and Time took place on 26th September 2021 at Jimmy’s on Bold Street, Liverpool. This was the first post-lockdown gig since the covid pandemic began and the first time I’ve performed with a band for many years. I was joined on stage by singer songwriter Stuart Todd (A.k.a. Shadow Captain) on bass guitar and vocals, music producer and multi-instrumentalist Andy Fernihough on drums and musician/composer Sean Buls on guitar. I’d like to say a huge “Thanks!” to the guys for helping me bring the music from the recording to the stage.

The night was supported by a captivating performance from, local singer-songwriter Evie Moran; reflecting influences like Billie Marten and The Staves, her carefully crafted originals tell stories of love, dreams, and nature.

Also supporting the event was Alan O’Hare from Only Child, he played a set of original tracks including his new single The new single Straight Lines; his tribute to all the women and men that came before us. He namechecking Woody Guthrie, Nina Simone, Shane McGowan and Gil Scott Heron in a passionate statement of intent on the troubadours that preceded him.

The album Love, Luck and Time was played in it’s entirety; opening with acoustic title track, Love, Luck and Time quickly followed by the rocky Master Key.  There was the addition of songs from previous albums, such as Diamond of My Mind from Mark Three, The River and Simple Story, which appear on Rust & Dust by my previous band, the Mojave Collective and Won’t Let You Down, which hasn’t been officially recorded yet. The night was well-attended and each member of the audience received a free download of the album.
