Exciting project coming up!

Reflections – Guggenheim Bilbao

5 Billion In Diamonds eponymous debut album is out now and receiving great reviews as well as lots of 6 Music play.

Here’s a video to Travelling, one of the highlights of the album, sung by Helen White.

Described in a recent review as “One part folk, one part psychedelia and all parts wonderful”.

Exactly. In all good record shops now.



Delighted and proud to have contributed to the recording of Nick Powell’s music specially composed for Bloom which was part of the opening of the Edinburgh International Festival  2017. Projections, lighting and illuminations by 59 Productions

Great new video – please share!

Undoubtedly the strangest charity single ever made. Unquestionably the best. Proud to have been involved.

Trinity is a fantastic Bristol venue that needs money to survive. Please donate whatever you can here

Thanks x

The first 5 Billion In Diamonds track is released. Watch the video to Gravity Rules.
