It’s wonderful to be able to celebrate an album 10 years on, I’m grateful that so many people have connected with that record over the years. I thought it would be fun and interesting to discuss the album after we play it, really delve into the details of the writing and recording process, with help from Ben lloyd (who produced it) and Rob Sandall (one of the first music journalists to really get it).


Roundhouse turned my world around. It’s a really special place and I wouldn’t be where I am now without it.
