A real pleasure for me to have recorded a track for this brilliant record for my buddies @bluenoterecords, verve records and @disneystudios. My contribution cover is from the film The Aristocats - Everybody wants to be a cat. It was arranged by Tom Richards and produced, recorded and mixed by @benlamdin. Basically the muthaf***in' 'A' list! Check out the other people on this too. It's killer and it's out today!!
Barry. He is real. I took this and saw it with my own eyes. #wildlifephotooftheyear
An enormous pleasure to listen to and collaborate with @vanillasundaecocoasunset today for a future radio show. Her new tunes are so, so SICK! @eglorecords @foldedwinguk
So.....I wrote an original Christmas song. I tried to write something that would fit directly into any classic Christmas compilation. Something timeless. It was super fun to write and put together. Written on the piano at home, arranged immaculately by Tom Richards, recorded @abbeyroadstudios expertly by @benlamdin aka Nostalgia77 featuring some of the finest musicians in our land. The superb illustration of me (yes that's me!) was done by @lucykirk who worked on my @the88journal magazine (issue 3 currently being born in my brain). You can stream it now on @spotify (link in my bio), @applemusic and @tidal in the U.K. with rest of the world following very soon. I hope you love it! #showmethemagic
Felt compelled to sketch the great man whilst on the plane home listening to You want it Darker. #leonardcohen
Notes and resolutions. #leonardcohen
An absolutely superb illustration from @jasperrietman. Good luck USA
Beautiful night at the #personalfest in Buenos Aires.
I've just uploaded two new Song Society videos to my YouTube channel. Frank Ocean's Thinkin Bout You and Ricki Lee Jone's Cycles. Each learnt, performed and recorded, live within an hour. High notes! Falsetto! Wrong notes! Guitar! It's all there! Link in the bio. Enjoy and share!

Today is the birthday of my wife @mssophiedahl - a totally extraordinary woman for so many reasons. Happy Birthday sweetheart. X
Such an incredible morning chatting to @BillyJoel for over an hour this morning about music and songwriting. Coming to @bbcradio2 soon!
If you pick up a copy of @voguemagazineuk this month (October) you can read an incredible article written by my wife @mssophiedahl which features the stories of my grandparents journeys that brought them to the UK. That's my Nan and Grandad (from Burma and India) holding my Mum and Uncle on the left on one of their first days in the UK; and that's my Omi (from Prussia, now Poland), my paternal grandmother on the right. It is a brilliant, measured and important article. I'm a very proud husband. X
Outside door no.37 at 37 years old today, on holiday. Grateful for all your support and open ears all these years. Photo taken by my one and only @mssophiedahl x
Behind the scenes mofos...... #proms
Safe to say an AWESOME time was had at @beyonce 's gig in Barcelona. Tons of the deep, dark Lemonade tracks. Not your typical safe, stadium gig. Inspiring!
Tonight on @bbcradio2 my interview with, quite literally 'The Don' @shabakahutchings stuffed full of awesome music. Don't miss it! Tonight at 7pm
