TBT – Summer Jam

In 2009, I wanted to make some beats, and inspired by a variety of things, love, beats and whatever else I ended up making a beat and getting the awesome Chima Anya to spit on it. We took the sentiment of the original, which was about Otis Redding and his untimely death in a plane crash. William Bell took this story and turned it into something rather beautiful. Chima took this idea and then wrote a story about a woman on her death bed reflecting her life, what she did looking back with no regrets. 8 years on, the tune still lives on and here’s a little tribute to it.

Child in Their Eyes – Out Now

I'm proud announce the official online release of Child in Their Eyes. After playing at a couple of festivals in London (particularly my area of Norwood, albeit the wrong end of Norwood) and some rather special screenings in London and Toronto, Child in Their Eyes is officially out for you all to enjoy. I want to say thank you to the main lead Alex. She put in a lot to this project and we even managed to record a single, which you can listen to on Spotify or buy on iTunes. I want to also give a shout James for being such a great supporting actor. It's been a pleasure to finally work with a long time friend, finally. Also thanks to Fabien, Simon and Emily for their involvement in making the song come to life, and Beatloafe's specially commissioned remix, which you can buy on iTunes or listen on

Anna Robertson Davis – Art Designer / Storyboard Art

I want to bring light to one of our frequent collaborators Anna Robertson Davis. She has been involved since the inception of Hentucky as a film company, but also before when she did the artwork for Kid Karoshi and Chancer Records (RIP). She came on board with Grow Up helping with production. And then helped with some of the concept art of the very very early inceptions. Which progressed into concept images for funding for The Kick Inside. That continued throughout and got involved in story boarding the full version of Zero. Only a concept scene has been shot and released online. And then she came on board with Child in Their Eyes for the poster. And the artwork for the single It's been an amazing journey so far and almost 10 years of working together, here's to the next! Check our her website to see what she's done. I've thrown in a few of my favourites. Visit Anna Robertson Davis
