What song do you most look forward to playing at on tour?
I like playing ‘Tides’ quite a bit live. Always a fun upbeat one to do.
How well do you know Turin Brakes? Any stories?
I met the turin Brakes guys at a boutique festival in the summer of 2012. Turned out me and Rob Allum ( TB’s drummer ) had quite a few of the same friends within the music world, and Rob used to be in a band with a close friend of mine too!
