With the decade-long success of his on-going project to keep making the music that matters to him – and considerable acclaim by press and peers alike – the future looks just fine. Since January 2012, he has released one solo album and 3 collaborative albums and will soon release a staggering 11 hour set of music with American multi-instrumentalist Daniel Berkman. On top of that, he has played a host of house concerts on either side of the Atlantic, and maintains a mind-boggling array of online activities aimed at inviting more people into the music.
