Mornin’. What a beautiful day…
Great stuff from Steve Lawson and Jon Thorne. Recorded live at this years London Bass Guitar Show. I missed the gig by half an hour ‘cos of traffic, so chuffed that Steve released some of it. I love the interplay between Steve’s ambient washes and Jon’s flurries on the double bass. Sit back and enjoy.

Here I am playing my new custom Anaconda Crusher CX5 (with a little help from my vocal chords).
I picked up the bass on Saturday and have hardly put it down since. Here, I’m performing a cover of a song by The Blue Nile called ‘Let’s Go Out Tonight’. This was filmed at the luthier’s studio and was literally the second thing I’d played on the instrument. As I’m a melodic player, I had the bass strung E-C. Watch out for more to follow as I get used to playing this beautiful bass.

So today was a slightly overwhelming day! I spent it packing up all the pre-ordered and newly ordered albums and was blown away by how many of you wonderful people from all over the uk and beyond support my music! Thank you so so much! I’m very proud of this album and it means a lot that so many of you guys want to hear us and support us like you do.
The other bit of information worth telling you is that the new Louise Petit tote bags are bloody marvellous… They fit in lots and lots of post! ;) x
