After a few years out from musiche returned with the 2014 release ’The St Sidwells Session ’ and a run of summer festivals including Glastonbury and Larmer Tree. His  hnest and original songwriting weaves in themes of love, memory, adversity and hope; ranging from the nostalgic images of a Northern childhood 'in the shadow of a burnt out mill' (Two Wanderers In 1980 ’s Clothes) to the trials and adventures of 21st Century life ‘Oh let me breathe, let me fly, let me live a polyphonic life’(A Polyphonic Life.)
