Saturday 27th Aug 2016 - The Wheatsheaf, Oxford

Thank you so much to Gappy Tooth for putting us on last night! We had an incredible time on stage, and loved hearing The Quentins and Blushes. Thank you to everyone who shared the musical moments with us.

Jack and I are so proud to be taking up the musical torch and following in Danny's footsteps. Thank you to everyone who supports us along the way, it means more than you can know .

 It's good to note the musical genes surfacing in Rose Segal and brother Jack, also here playing double base, seeing as they are the offspring of the late, great Oxfordshire bluesman Danny Segal from the Mojo Bones.

Rose tenders a more English drawing room pop with her octave-vaulting trill, reminiscent of an All About Eve 'Martha Harbour' folk-gothic or Judie Tzuke in captivating 'All The Colours', while the upbeat tropic swing of 'Torrent or Shower' is ear-catching coda to an ever improving set.

Ophelia Video Released

Friday 8th July 2016

I am so excited to share with you my song "Ophelia" arranged by Tom Proctor and sung by ourselves with the Oxford Singers. Thank you to Foxglove Productions for the beautiful video. I hope you all enjoy!

Nearly a year ago, Rose joined Oxford Singers and offered us the chance to do one of her songs as an original for the choir.

I had great fun working with her in arranging it for SATB [Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass] and adapting it for a different setting, and we first performed the arrangement in a concert back in March.

A few months later, and we've recorded it as a fully edited video, courtesy of the team at Foxglove Productions.

Thank you all for getting involved and being so enthusiastic, and thank you Rose for writing this and taking us along for the ride!
