Well it's that time of year again where we've done some reflecting here at Cherry Jam Camp and agreed that 2013 was indeed a great year for Cherry. From performing all over the UK again at many festivals, art centres and venues, to recording at Abbey Road with Bernie 'Whitesnake' Marsden. Performing at Silverstone British Grand Prix again in front of a 8,000 something strong crowd, to performing alongside Ronnie Wood and Van Morrison at BluesFest at the Royal Albert Hall. Releasing new EP Cherry Pickin' back in the summer, to many more positive magazine reviews and radio plays all around the world. 2013 has been on to remember!

Says Cherry, "There have been many highlights of this year and as ever I continue to be thankful to have the best of the best on my team; my band who are truly at the top of their game and who are my musical family, another year with them is my highlight. I've also enjoyed working with Bernie Marsden again this year and guesting with Del Bromham of Stray too which has seen me open up for Mott The Hoople with him back in November. As ever, i'm genuinely excited to see what next year will bring. 2014 is already looking exciting. We've got a new album to put out and lots more cities to play in. I'll be returning to the US and performing with my Mississippi band too. As ever, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support, whether coming to gigs, buying my CD's, emailing requests to national radio stations, thank you for it all! You've come this far with us, you may as well stay for the best is yet to come! Happy New Year everyone, let's make it another to remember!"

What's left to say is thanks once again for all your support in 2013, we'll see you in 2014 and Cherry will be releasing her new album in the Spring. She's also on Bernie Marsden's new album Shine due out March 17th. As ever, check the gig dates to see  where you can see Cherry and her band in 2014!

HAPPY NEW YEAR and enjoy the picture collage below!
