Rehearsing New Songs

2nd March 2020

With a lot of things going on for both Geoff and I outside of music we haven't been playing live for some time now. So, we're very excited to say that we're rehearsing new songs and have played a handful of times already in Manchester. We're happy to be up and rolling again. We have around 15 new songs and are in the process of putting a live set together. It'll also be new in the way that Geoff will be playing keys throughout the set. Myself on vocals and classical guitar. The piano and the classical guitar make beautiful sounds together.

Here are a couple of live videos from rehearsal to give you a sample of what we're up to.

See you out there soon

Urban And The Shed Crew - NIFF 2018

31st March 2018

Happy Easter, all!

After a long time and a few bumps in the road Blenheim Films will be releasing the long awaited Urban And The Shed Crew. It will premiere today at Newcastle International Film Festival. We were fortunate to be asked to work on this amazing film by providing three of our songs to the soundtrack but we were also asked recently if we could write a brand new song for the film. Geoff wrote this beautiful song called Leave The World Outside, recorded all instrumentation and I recorded the vocal. It's the first song Geoff has written for Som Vinter, but hopefully it won't be the last..

Here's the latest film teaser where Leave The World Outside has been used, or listen to the full track.

We've been a bit quiet for a while now but for good reason, Geoff and I have been busy in the studio working on arrangements for our new songs. We're planning to record a new album in 2018 so we have plenty of work ahead. This is a live arrangement for a song called Searching For A Smile
