Wa…. well its been a long time since Ive updated my site! For many years it has been a dream of mine to go to Cuba and in January I arrived in Havana ready to absorb whatever came my way. What a journey its been since then. From Cuba to Mexico, Guatemala to El Salvador and into Colombia. Here are a few moments to share with you:
In Santiago de Cuba with friends I met that I can now call family.

What a beautiful night with an amazing crowd in Vegueta, Las Palmas. Thanks to El Hogarte and the incredible musicians David Shea and Pablo Quintana that performed with me. It was truly special – good energy flowing all round x
Tengo muchas ganas tocar en San Mateo, Gran Canaria la proxima semana, un sitio super guay en un pueblo encantador!
Gig in Herbolario Hedra, San Mateo
Travelling from Pais Vasco to Barcelona I stopped near a medeival town called Olite to do some clips for a new music video with photographer Benjamin Muir. The journey through Nevarra and Aragon took us through some amazing landscapes, and all of them seemed to be full of castles!
From Galicia the tour continued into along the coast with a busy line up of gigs from Asturias and finishing in Bilbao. Thanks everyone for for such a warm welcome in Spain! Here´s a few photos from the gigs!

Exploring the Picos de Europa en route!
Portugal has been wonderful so far! The first show was in Fabrica Braco de Prata, an amazing venue that was once a weapons factory and now an art and music centre in the port of Lisboa. Thanks Luis Reis for the photo!
After exploring Lisbon we have taken to the road to make the most of the countryside before the next show. The majestic Sintra castles a train/ride away from Lisbon, the stunning coastline of beautiful beaches and fishing villages of Ericeira, huge waves of Nazare, medieval town of Obidos and mountains of Parque National Penedes Geres. Here are some photos of the journey so far!

The closer we return to nature, the closer we become to ourselves. To stop for a moment, to breathe, to see all our preoccupations in perspective, to embrace solitude and still feel part of everything, to feel free.
Very excited to announce that this October I will be on tour in Portugal and Northern Spain! Can’t wait to explore this beautiful part of the world!
