I’m really excited to write that ‘Baby and Me’ (Single Version) will be released as a digital download on April 18th 2011, with spanky new vocals (lest you confuse it with the album version). You also can play ‘spot the lyric change’ too if you are so inclined… plus there are lots of spring-like Oo-La-Laas as we were feeling sprightly that day. I’ll send more details nearer the time about how and where to download, but if you want to hear the single version of ‘Baby and Me’ now, just visit BBC Radio 6music and look for Nemone, 1300, Wednesday 16th March 2011. Baby and Me is about 13 minutes into the show, and it’ll be on the BBC iplayer for a few more days.

Let me know what you think of this new single version… hope you enjoy!

JazzUK Review of ‘April Song’ album launch gig at The Vortex, London Nov 2010.
“…Her warm, slightly gauche persona engages immediately, as if she takes her music seriously but herself less so… Her own songs, Jilted Woman Blues and The Choice are witty and assured and she handles matters of the heart and weightier subjects with equal ease.” Duncan Heining, JazzUK Magazine
