The first week of our tour has been indescribable-
I first came to Tulum, Mexico 2005 and fell in love with place. I learnt how to do my first Scuba dive here and my teacher was incredible- she also happened to be a fan of Zero 7-
Being invited to play here last Saturday and Tuesday has been one of the most magnificent experiences that I have ever had.
Cycling to the beaches that are pure white sand and then diving into a turquoise green sea that is so fresh you can drink it as there are many underwater channels that run through from land to sea and sea to land.
They were created when A 10km-diameter asteroid, travelling with a speed of 250,000 km per hour hit the yucatan peninsula hence the caverns and the stalagmites and stalactites inside the caves.
The magic runs through the land and the waters will wash away all negative feeling and leave you feeling light and refreshed even after all the tequila shots!
Fantastic food and fantastic fun and so much to explore.
We swam with Turtles and in fresh water lakes and visited ancient ruins- away from all the business of city life just to breathe, walk, swim, watch birds fly above and chill in the water- to have been given the privilege to play music .
Be still for a while and just smell the fresh sea water each magical moment colliding into another and as each experience opens up a new life opens up to- It’s a language of communication and a language of love and respect and as musicians this is the environment we want to create by gathering people together with music as this kind of magic truly exists.
Life is always in the hands of the gods and thank goodness I say!

› Mexico in May-» Posted: Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 by Sophie
Wow what a month April was. So so busy planning, writing, playing- managed to keep my head above water and now the fruits of our labor come into being.
The band had been rehearsing all month for The Tabernacle gig April 19th which was a monumental gathering of 520 people.
Unbelievable! We played an hour long set with some new songs and some classics to keep the crowd entertained as there wont be another concert now until the album is finished and ready to launch- We are working as quickly as we can to get this done so that we can have a fresh release beginning 2014 and have our ‘Gold Dust’ EP out in the autumn.
Thank you for everyone who came and supported us and next time bigger , better and a lot LOUDER!!!
I have also been working on the US tour and summer Festivals so absolutely no rest for me, but I will have a couple of days to chill on the beach in Tulum after our MAY 4TH gig at ZAMAS before we start our co-headline tour with The Egg in Boulder, Denver May 9th.
I can’t wait to sing with my brilliant band. Looking forward to a tour filled with laughter.
Please follow our Journey from Mexico to US. There will be plenty of stories
If music be the food of love play on……

How lovely that the sun came out just for a little while this weekend.
Last week was busy. I ended up writing a new song, rehearsing with the band for The Tabernacle gig. I managed to see two gigs-
The Mostar Diving Club at the beautiful Hoxton Hall and then went to The Bush Hall on Saturday Eve. An eventful but great week
and I am so excited about the concert which is only two weeks away. How time flies!
I have loved getting together with my band after a few months, lots of fun and it’s always refreshing to play new songs.
Which you will hear when you come to my April 19th gig.
Please follow us on our journey and pass on to friends. If you haven’t got your tickets for the The Tabernacle here is the link again-
See you there
