On stage in York
The Theatre@41 Monkgate in York was a lovely venue to play and the support we had and the people we met that night were warm and friendly and chatty. A truly lovely evening.

The very special

All the kit in the van
We had discussed the packing plan many times. Sometimes it was perfect. Others not so much.

It was a warm day and a warm welcome for us at Swindon Arts Centre.
Matt finding peace
On a bench in Bracknell
It's important to sit on a park bench sometimes and just breathe.

Soundcheck in Bracknell
The set up and soundcheck is vital. Bob is a master at all the technical bits and we couldn't have done it without him.

Off to the South
Tour van selfie time. Spending time on the road was a great check in for our mental health.
Kicking off the tour in our hometown of Derby was a blessing. The audience at Deda was a full blown majestic beast and to play for them was a privilege.
Matt opens up on
When you realise you will be talking about your own mental health on stage to the public for a year.. Matt just goes for it. It's a joy to behold such openness.
His Debut Book

That post show buzz
Thank you Deda
Our launch night, the start of it all, what a thrill.
