I’m Under The Knife – But Check Out This 10 Year Old Lad Doing An Alun Parry Cover

Right gang, I’m taking a breather for a few weeks because I’m under the knife in the morning.

Nothing too serious, just an op on my leg, but it means I won’t be gigging for a few weeks as a result.

In the meantime, check out the fab Samuel Simpson in the video below.

He’s only 10, and he heard me sing my song You Are My Addiction at a gig at Studio Two recently.

Being a keen performer himself, he learned it, partially rewrote the chorus to clean it up, and then performed it at his local open mike night. It’s really fab!

Well done Sam! I wish I’d been this good at ten. Or even now come to think of it.

Leave Sam some comments here so he can see how much you enjoyed his performance!

    Well done, Sam. It’s a challenge to recall the lyrics to the addiction song.
    Addictive and confident singing and playing. Hope you write your own songs too. I’ll be listening out for you in coming years. 0: ) x

    This kid’s fab! It’s a really brave thing to put yourself out there like that, especially at such a young age, but it’s a fab cover and he’s a great performer. Sorry to hear about your leg though, Alun. x

    Ten years old and performing like that already. Well done Sam, you’ve got talent and confidence. Keep it up.
