The Sage is one of my favourite venues in the UK and the place that every young musician based in the North East dreams of playing, let alone selling out. It was such a special night and I’m so happy to have had the evening recorded. The opportunity to perform with the YMP Strings was too good an offer to miss, and with their help me and my band were able to get these songs to sound how they appeared in my head when I first composed them
