Another full-on week at Pure HQ... 

Kate and the crew had a really busy weekend on the Spring Tour for Philosophers, Poets and Kings including two sell-out shows in London. The Spring Tour continues in May, but this is not a break for everyone...oh no!

This week has been full on for a couple of us holding the fort whilst many are off for some family time for school half term holidays....that does mean that the teabag count is down.

Happy February! Time is marching on and so does album production. This week, Kate's new album has reached the mastering process with the brilliant Nick Cooke from Nick Cooke Mastering who you may know from Kate's band, but this is his day job.

It's on to the next stage of Kate's album this week. In the meantime, we are making plans for the whole of 2019, even listening to Kate's song on Ruth Jones' Desert Island Discs on the way to a meeting!
