Some news, Dear Friends! Coming to you today from a small, collapsing shed in the middle of an overgrown garden in Hackney...

THE LITTLE UNSAID ON TOUR
Our autumn tour kicks off on the 19th September, taking us to such deep, dark corners of Merry England as Wiltshire, Windsor, London, Cambridge, Winchester, Bristol, Falmouth, Exeter, Norwich, Canterbury and more. Most of these shows will be with full band (strings, drums, bass, electronics, voices), and the London one will be with my good friends the Southfields String Quartet. This is ridiculously exciting and I can't wait to get out there and share what we've been working on, but we really need your support if we're going to be able to make a tour of this size work with a full band - please come out to see us if we are crossing your path! And do spread the word to friends and family in other places around the country if it looks like we're passing through their neck of the woods, we promise to provide an evening full of merriment, music and mirth.

ALBUM THREE
Once this tour wraps up, there will be a short gap where I'll be working on bringing together material for album number three. This one's going to involve a lot more orchestrating for other ensembles and instruments, so the writing process will be lengthier, but I'm aiming to start recording this in early 2015. I'll post any further updates on yonder website and social media doo-hickies as and when.

FILM
I've been working on some music for a documentary made in partnership with Cardboard Citizens, a homeless people's theatre company here in London. The film follows ex-homeless participants as they devise theatre performances based on their experiences, and it will be screened this autumn in London and hopefully Manchester. The film is still in the edit stage but full details of the screenings will be coming soon, I'll fling them around aplenty when they're confirmed.

That's all from me folks, please have a lovely day and hope to see you on the road soon,

John
