This last week I traveled to Toronto and Montreal to see everybody at Cherrytree North / Universal Music Canada, catch the first two opening dates of the epic Robyn & Natalia Kills tour and say hello to some folks at Canadian radio & TV. Thanks to everybody at Universal, CHUM, Much Music, Virgin, Z103.5, KISS, Scene, Flare, AndPop, Proud, Musique Plus & CKOI. I snapped some photos around the Robyn / Natalia Kills shows and here they are. …
Last week I went to Germany to meet up with colleagues and also catch some of Natalia Kills' promotional activities. I even accompanied Ms. Kills on the piano at a few radio station visits. That was fun. I snapped a few photos along the way, of course, for my CherrytreeRecords.com photo blog and here they are starting with Natalia Kills being interviewed at NRJ Radio in Berlin below.…

I watch very little television but just recently my attention was drawn to a BBC2 documentary called ‘A Band For Britain’. The programme follows Sue Perkins as she attempts to breathe new life into the Dinnington Colliery Brass Band. It was quite simply one of the funniest, most moving and most affecting things I have ever seen.
I have two reasons to be particularly vulnerable to a programme like this. Firstly because on my mother’s side of my family, my great grandfather was a coal… Continue
had a really great day with Tim and Tom in Tim's studio yesterday. I went there to take some photos, and ended up laying down some drum tracks on a couple of songs. was nice to use the drums I bought Tim about 2 years ago, precisely for moments like this! only four mics around the kit, but it sounded great. anyway, I remembered to take some photos, and here they are. Hope everyone is well, and rest-assured, we are looking forward to coming out to…

Not only because it is an absolute corker of a film and stars, among many other great performances, the unstoppable Thomas Turgoose. It also features six Noah and the Whale songs on the soundtrack. The tracks are mostly from the first record and one b-side. Here is a trailer;

First off, sorry for such a lengthy silence on this website. Amongst many new years resolutions, to be a more a devoted blogger ranks moderately high.
I haven’t much to report, I spent my Christmas making the first serious steps on the writing of the next record. I have a pretty clear idea now of what I want it to be and have about four songs that I’m very pleased with. We’re spending the next couple of months demoing in a converted synagogue.
