Car Boot Vendors


While I was in Thailand, performing shows with Sibling Rivalry, I started writing songs for this project. Car Boot Vendors which will always be a hugely important band for me because it marked a moment in my life when I felt for the first time I was truly becoming a songwriter.  Before I had only ever written songs with one act, I was staying with my brother and he overheard me fiddling around on a guitar, he remarked on how he liked the music, he then bought me an acoustic guitar for my birthday whilst I was in Thailand. After that it seemed my journey as a songwriter was only just beginning.
