Huge thanks to everyone who pre ordered mine and @mirandajsykes debut album, #UnquenchingFire ! I’ve been clogging up the post office getting them all sent out to you. Deluxe pre orders come complete with this print that I made, plus a specially printed teatowel 😁

We’d like to say a massive thank you to @phillip.henry who produced and recorded the album for us. 😍😍😍

Can’t wait for you all to hear it now!

Beautiful to be at @sidfolkfestival again, can’t wait to play as SykesMartin in the Ham tonight supporting @spookymenschorale !

Had such a great time last night @exmouthpavilion that I didn’t take any photos, so here’s an enormous summer moon over the beach instead. Thank you all so much for coming, I just wish I’d been able to catch up with you all for longer, it got a bit hectic and wow wasn’t it sweaty!

On the road west again for tomorrow’s very special @minacktheatre concert. Not many tickets left and it’s going to be hot hot hot 🌞🌞🌞
