Seeing this on the streets of London has made my day. #onlyfoolsandhorses
Old songs new ways.
Christmas Carol busking. #carols #christmassongs
I found this leftover of my Games Workshop career. This took my 11 year old self a long time to paint. #gargant #gamesworkshop
Actually jumping into some music theory for the first time. This book is blowing my tiny mind. Any other super basic, more general theory books recommended by any musos out there? #blackwing #musictheory #cycleoffifths #whoknew? #lacabra
Farewell to this great man, Mr Jon Hendricks, at 96, one of the most dexterous and joyous singers to walk planet earth. Attending his live show at the Jazz Cafe, and seeing him perform with Wynton Marsalis for his ‘Blood on the fields’ album are some of my most favourite and formative musical memories. #jonhendricks #jazzsinger #vocalese
I’m standing here in my studio with the man who wrote “If I ruled the world” and “Pure Imagination” amongst so many other incredible, classic songs. Leslie Bricusse - look him up if you don’t know - What kind of fool am I? Goldfinger!!! Feeling good!!!?? This man wrote all those and many more. He is also it turns out, a total gentleman and wonderful company. I feel very honoured to have met one of the true giants of songwriting. PS thankfully he totally digs my versions of his songs!! Woohooo!
So great to meet and perform with the lovely Ainhoa Arteta in Barcelona recently. Thanks to #LORespresso for mixing things up!

Not sure why it took me so long to get a disco ball for the studio.
Lovingly hanging on my studio wall. Me and @eltonjohn. The new book about him “Captain Fantastic” by Tom Doyle is a great read #eltonjohn #rocketman #legend #captainfantastic #musicbiography

Loved interviewing the most excellent and eloquent Mr Guy Garvey for my radio show. Coming soon.
Made some magic today with @mrbrunomajor - a disgustingly talented and soulful man.
A great chance to go and meet Mrs C! @mssophiedahl in conversation for @redmagazine on Wednesday 7:30pm at Asia House, Marylebone, London in conversation for #smartwomenweek hearstlive.co.uk/smartwomenweek/
Just a simple piano/vocal yesterday. A few live takes of a song I wrote inspired by some of my idols: Tom Waits, Randy Newman and Cole Porter. Yes - this is keeping it simple in recording land.....#LP8
A huge happy birthday to my wonderful wife Sophie who is 40 today. A beautiful woman inside and out, endlessly full of laughter, surprises, book recommendations and Jay Z quotes. A true one off. I am a very lucky man. X
