A couple of weeks ago I was thrilled to join Chris Evans on his Friday morning Breakfast Show, alongside Billie Piper, David Dimbleby and Laurence Fox. It was so much fun!! Here are a couple of clips recorded in the studio…

This fall has started with a bang for me. Cher released a cover version of my song “Sirens” on her new album Closer To The Truth. I wrote Sirens about my experience living in downtown New York during 9/11, and being such a personal song to me I wasn’t sure I wanted anyone else to cover it. But when I heard that Cher had fallen in love with the song because she was a fellow New Yorker and was really moved by its message, I knew she’d do a wonderful job. Plus it’s every songwriter’s dream to hear Cher’s iconic voice singing your melody!…
I’ve also got a new single coming out which got its first play on Ken Bruce’s Radio 2 show. It’s a new direction for me, exploring a new side of my musical tastes. I hope you like it! It’s called All You Had and you can hear it here:
On the last band tour we recorded a live album that will be released Oct 28 in the UK. I haven’t done a live album since Live From Iraq and I figured it was time to do another one! This one’s called Live In London.
I’ve been busy writing for my new album but can’t stay away from the road for long, so to kick off the live album release we will start in Edinburgh and Newcastle Oct 29/30 and continue on through November.
I will be playing this year’s Bluesfest at the Royal Albert Hall Nov 1 with artists such as Huey Morgan & The New Yorkers, Van Morrison, Ronnie Wood & Chris Rea!
And I’ve got several more support slots with the legendary Jools Holland.
It will be busy up until New Years this year, so come out and have some fun joining me on the road! Check the dates out to the right of this post!

When I was a little girl, I remember seeing albums recorded by my heroes at the Royal Albert Hall – Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, etc – and thinking, “someday I will play there.” For years I held that dream close to my heart, assuming it was still a far off wish, until last week I played it not once but twice in the span of 72 hours. The first time I was there, with Gary Barlow, I was practically shaking with nerves in front of the 5000+ people, though I managed to take in the Queen’s box, the lit-up mushrooms hanging from the ceiling, and the gorgeous round room with crystal clear acoustics. The second time I was there, with Jools Holland, the place was again sold out, but this time I managed to fully relax into the joys of standing on that stage. You don’t always get to hear from artists how magical they know their lives are, so I am admitting to you now how geeked out I was. But there’s no time for too much self-congratulation, since I’m only 7 shows into a 40 date tour. Must pace myself and not get too excited!
