It’s World Vegan Day! (Hooray!)

November is upon us which means so is World Vegan Day, and the beginning of World Vegan Month (of course).

It’s the time of year when a lot outreach and activism takes places and i’ll be doing my bit on a stall with Exeter Friends For Animals shortly after this blog update is posted – i have spend my early hours doing something.

Anyway, to celebrate World Vegan Day i have decided to release some music!

The two songs that i’ve chosen to release of course have a vegan theme.

The first track, We’re The Ones was shared a few days ago and debuted during my gig at the West Midlands Vegan Festival – i’m sure you’ve heard about my collaborative vegan video for it too.

The second track is titled (We’re) Singing For Freedom and is a song you may have heard about as i sought out vegan singers to come in the studio and help me record it.

Lyrically (and musically, let’s be honest) it’s a very simple track based around a chorus;

“we’re singing for freedom, we’re singing for freedom
singing for freedom, for every life on earth”

I wanted to make a song that could in theory be sang at marches, such as the recent Surge (Animal Rights) March in London on the 29th of October. A song to show that people want change and a kinder world to live in, and i think i achieved that.

I am tremendously grateful for those who came to sing and play on the track, they gave the song what it really needed. I remember sitting in control room as the drum track and vocals were recorded and thinking how great it was starting sound.

Have a listen below and see what you think 🙂


The Importance Of The Vegan Message

I think it’s very important for vegan artists, be they musicians, poets, painters or writers to do something to promote veganism within their work, even if it’s just a subtle touch.

I’ve recently attended a save vigil and been doing more activism. It’s a great way to meet like-minded people and do your part for the animals. Even getting just one person to change their outlook is a huge step!

I often used to think of myself as a singer/songwriter who was a vegan but nowadays i consider myself a vegan who is a singer/songwriter and i will sing my songs of freedom for as long as i can!

In 2017 i hope to play as many vegan festivals as possible, this year was such a success for me on a personal note as i appeared at Bristol VegFest, West Midlands Vegan Festival and Earth Cafe. Maybe i’ll finally play abroad? (even if it’s just Wales or Scotland).

Until next time!
