Last one for the night. I still can't believe I was in the presence of Quincy Jones. http://t.co/pNSOLkrgGI
My friend Nick Staib found this spot in Roehampton (London) last week and uploaded a photo of it to his Facebook page, as soon as I saw it I knew it had to be the spot for my next Somewhere Session!
Minnie Riperton’s “Loving You” is probably not a song choice you would expect from me. A friend introduced me to it a while ago, and they’ve often mentioned the “high note”, which I took as a “I bet you can’t reach that note!”<– I’m sure that’s not what they were really thinking, but I rose to the challenge anyway! It’s a beautiful song and Minnie Riperton’s vocals are stunning. My aim was to take the highlights and emotion of the song but take them somewhere a little more “Harrison”.
I chose this song for this location because of the tweeting birds at the beginning of Minnie Riperton’s original. It reminded me a little of Snow White – “With a Smile and a Song”
Anyway, without further-a-do, here is my Somewhere Session cover of Minnie Riperton’s “Loving You” <3

I’m shooting a new Somewhere Session today <3 New video soon.
Somewhere Session 9 is a cover of Chase & Status “Blind Faith” (featuring Liam Bailey). Filmed on a boat off the South coast of France. Let me know if you like it!
The 8th cover in the Somewhere Session series. Being in Australia I thought I would cover one of my favourite Australian ladies: Kylie! I hope you enjoy this little ditty and please remember to subscribe if you like what you’re hearing.
We’ve passed the half way mark! (I planned on doing 12 episodes when I began this series).
Here is Somewhere Session SEVEN coming to you from down under. It’s a cover of Australian-duo The Veronicas “Revenge is Sweeter (Than You Ever Were)”. Spot any famous landmarks in the background?
This space is normally reserved for my music, but this post is for other musicians and fans that might want to travel.
On my recent trip to America I used AirBnB to find budget accommodation for myself in LA and Austin. I had a bit of bad luck with the first place I booked as the host cancelled it a month or two before I left – PANIC! However, as soon as they cancelled it I received a personal email from AirBnB who not only gave me a full refund but gave me suggestions of other places I could stay and gave me an extra lump sum towards the new place I booked.

P.s. I also get a discount when you use my discount code. But I wouldn’t advertise something that I didn’t believe in.
Any of you in Austin tonight for South by South West?! If so, head down to Amped on 6th Street to see me perform. My stage-time is 10pm and I’ll be on for 40 mins. I’ll be performing acoustically tonight so I’ll need as many of you there as possible to be my backing singers
Milky Tea Kid (@MilkyTeaKid) filmed this last Somewhere Session for me at the top of Skyline Hotel (@skylinehotelny) in New York! I chose “Maps” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs (@YYYs) as this was the city where they formed.
Have a watch here and let me know what you think! Please hit “like” and share if you enjoy it!
