As I'm on my radio tour this week the fact of the week comes from my tour manager Martin: ‘The term plugging comes from Captain L. Plugge who was behind the first commercial broadcast in England back in 1925. He managed to convince Selfridges to broadcast a live fashion show and from that point on every time somebody wanted something advertised they had to talk to Captain Plugge – hence the name ‘plugging’… Unfortunately only three people tuned in.’
Artist of the week
This week I've had James Blake’s new single Retrograde stuck on repeat. I love how simple yet powerful the production is and I find his melodies infectious.
Last Tuesday I spent the day on a photo shoot getting a whole new load of images together. I was photographed by the amazing Nicky Johnston and I can’t wait for you guys to see all the new photos! On Thursday night I performed at The Queen of Hoxton. Was great to showcase my music to people who hadn’t heard it before, as well as give some of my fans a really intimate performance. It makes me look forward to all the other shows we’re going to have in the near future and can’t wait to see you all down there! Fan
