Potlatch, my debut EP as The Restless Native is out today on iTunes and Amazon etc…
This is my first instrumental project so I’m very excited to share it with you!
It is being released by NYC based boutique label Ralenteer Records.
Here’s a quote from their press release to give you some background -
"This EP hears him channeling his Native American ancestry through mystic ambient soundscapes and tribal beats that draw a concentric line from the jungle, through the desert, into the inner city and onto the cosmos and back.

Potlatch refers to the Native American system of gift giving (whereby the most generous attained the highest status in society) and represents the ongoing inversion of the social pyramid in a post Occupy inspired world.”

Your support is, as ever, very much appreciated and necessary if I’m going to keep on doing this!

A year ago today, while on the runway at JFK waiting for our flight to take off, I checked my phone one last time and discovered terrible news…my close friend Jonas Jéan aka 180 Ronin had died after falling on the subway tracks and hitting the third rail. 

The news, and the timing of it’s delivery, couldn’t have been more devastating. Not being able to grieve with friends or attend his funeral service was very hard. So while in London, I wrote my feelings down as lyrics, which I then recorded as a song, The 180 Ronin.

Recently, myself and some other friends of Jonas put this video together for the song and today I would like to share it as a tribute to a gifted and beautiful soul who left us too soon…

Fly Baby

My album Fly Baby was released four years ago today and to celebrate I’ve made it available for free. Follow the widget below to download…

Fly Baby set me free and took me on an amazing adventure that ended with my arrival in New York City. Along the way I met and collaborated with everyone from Moroccan street musicians to Roots Manuva. Following Fly Baby wherever she flew were some of the best times of my life, but the real journey is still beginning…

I’d have to agree with the pigeons when it comes to Adam Smith. Nice view though.. #edinburgh #scotland  (Taken with Instagram)
