new tracks. 11 of these will be released on
the 24th March under the album title
HOPE. They’ll be available from all of the
 streaming services.
Hope you have time to give HOPE
a listen. All the tracks are instrumental
and while not the usual edm are danceable.
I’ve had a lot of fun writing them and of course I’ll be very
pleased/happy if someone likes them.”
I’m looking forward to hearing it.

Billy Bragg Reaction

12 days after Smitty from the ‘What The Hell Everything Podcast’ uploaded his reaction to Kirsty’s version of ‘A New England’, he has put up a video reacting to the original by Billy Bragg.


I would love for him to react to Kirsty and Billy’s live acoustic version they did for the BBC in 1991.
