To celebrate the official launch of the Liberty Jones video (and have a bit of a Summer party too) we're playing a headline slot at the Hoxton Square Bar and Grill on Tuesday 25th July.The venue's ace, looking out over Hoxton Square and should be the perfect spot for live music and drinks in the sunshine. Really hope you can make it down. Get your tickets here:http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=173870&interface=plum
LIBERTY JONES SINGLE RELEASE
After a few music-business-related challenges, we've got a release date for Liberty Jones. We wanted to make sure we did it absolutly right with the best team in place. We've now got the people we need to do the job for us and the physical release date will be October 9th - with download available before. Can't wait!
