I’m halfway through my European tour, and so far it has been quite something..
It was wonderful to come back to the Trianon, for two nights this time, it’s such a beautiful place to play.. I remember quickly learning Lady Grinning Soul back stage, and going out into the foyer and performing it as part of my solo show.. Then jumping into a cab to the Carmen and doing another solo show.. I loved the intimacy of the Carmen, and of being so close to the audience.. I played a cover of Satisfied Mind, which was a song that I always wished I could sing, before I was a singer..
When I was in Paris I was also fortunate enough to meet and write a song with Marianne Faithfull, which was such an honour.. I arrived at her apartment, and I was immediately struck by how beautiful she is. We sat in her living room, which was full of fresh flowers, and I played guitar as we sang together. She’s so charming and talented, and has so many interesting stories to tell.. I’m very proud of the song we wrote.
In Italy I recognised some faces in the crowd- the audiences were very passionate..and the Teatro Grande in Brescia was the most beautiful venue I’ve ever seen..
And in Ljubljana I met many lovely Slovenian people, this show was really something..
I hope to see you somewhere on the road,
