Back from Stockholm with quite a few things to share with you !
Here is the short feature that Swedish national TV SVT did on me in their culture programme Kulturnyheterna, with short excerpts from one of my new songs entitled “Captain of none”.
The whole song can be seen here. It was recorded at 10 :30 in the morning, which meant I had to do a quick set up and soundcheck before 10 o’clock, not very easy for someone like me who is not a morning person at all (and even less so after a full day of travelling to get from Spain to Sweden!), and it’s actually pretty hard to sing just an hour after getting up and not having even spoken with anyone yet ! The floor tom that I play in the last section of the song is unfortunately very low in the mix… which just makes me feel like going into my studio and recording the song for real ! ;-)
Last but definitely not least, the concert I gave for Art’s Birthday Party in the beautiful Södra Teatern on Friday night is available in streaming here (to navigate within the stream point your mouse on the timer at the top right of the screen and the time bar will appear). I think it’s one of the best concerts I’ve given since going back to playing live last year, and it’s also really well recorded, so I’m very happy about this being available.
The setlist is as follows :
Ursa Major Find
Once upon a time there was a pretty fly (cover from the film The night of the hunter)
I’ll read you a story
The weighing of the heart
Captain of none
I’ve been especially excited about playing all the new songs, and you can follow the lyrics to them in the updated lyrics section of this website.

I’ll be playing in Stockholm for Art’s Birthday Party on Friday 24th January, and 20 minutes of the performance will be broadcast between 22:40-23:00 CET (Central European Time), preceded by a short interview at 22:35, on national Swedish Radio Sverige Radio P2, available in streaming here (use the time zone converter to check the time in your country). The whole performance will be broadcast in a show called Elektroniskt in late March/early April.
I will also appear shortly on Swedish national TV SVT in the Kulturnyheterna programme, at some point on Friday 24 January, not sure at what time exactly, but it should be available in streaming here for a couple of days.
Last but not least, the brilliant artwork created by Iker Spozio for The Weighing of the Heart (inside cover here), Solar/Stellar and my London and Crystal Palace concerts, is now available in high-quality, limited edition giclee prints at Artelimited .
For those of you on a tighter budget, I’ve also finally gotten hold of the London and Crystal Palace posters that were printed for those shows on A3 matte paper : there are only 12 copies of each poster left, available for 8 euros + postage. The posters can be signed by both myself and Iker if you so wish. If you’d like one or several copies, please contact me directly (via the email in the contacts section), telling me the number of posters you’d like and your country of residence so that I can inform you on postage costs.
