‘Dear Happy’, out today on through AWAL and Never Fade Records, is the latest album from Gabrielle Aplin. A look at her life compiled while touring and travelling all over the world the past few years, it’s an uplifting and empowering album of 14 tracks, exploring her state of mind during this time.
To review a festival like Cornbury is almost impossible. Back by popular demand after calling it a day last year, organiser Hugh Phillimore had enlisted headliners UB40, Alanis Morissette and the superb Squeeze. Like any festival it’s always going to be the tale of music that I saw, the tale of my personal journey from stage to stage, the tale of what made the weekend special for me.
