I finished recording my new album 'Potions' nearly 3 years ago without any real plan of when or how to release it. Since then I've gigged sporadically, written a lot of songs, been out to Hong Kong a couple of times playing sets of mostly Witness songs with Ray Chan. I've also toured Britain and been out to America a couple of times playing guitar for Blue Aeroplanes, as well as stints on guitar for Bristol band Saturation Point. They're an instrumental group made up of ex Witness drummer John Langley and Joe Allen on bass. They both play on all the tracks on my album and make up the core of my live band. We've done a handful of gigs over the last few months and I've got to say it's great to be playing my songs with a band again. Now I'm looking forward to a busy 2011 when the album finally sees the light of day.
