I'm getting ready to embark on a three week tour of Germany, with performer Ryan Sheridan, and I realised I don't really have a working suitcase any more. I think I've been hibernating since Christmas. So, it's about time I made a list of on-the-road-again must-haves. Flights, epic car journeys, travel sickness, and a show a night... I just need to be comfy!
It's wonderful to have a collaborator. Sometimes as a musician, or writer, you spend hours at home alone just working on idea after idea, you never really know what's working, you don't know what's good, bad, or just plain terrible. And, I suppose that's why getting those ideas out in front of another human being can be so scary.
A name that has been honey to the lips of many critics of late is one Josephine Oniyama; a super-chilled Mancunian alt-soul singer-songwriter. With so many descriptions to follow her name, it's no real surprise that she has opted to perform under just 'Josephine'- a less cumbersome mouthful to match her clean vocal style and classic style of composition.
