It's been 8 weeks already, Cherry is halfway through her 4 month jazz tour which up to this point has seen her tour around Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and currently in Iceland. Cherry will finish in the Med where she'll be heading to next month.

Says Cherry, "I'm having an amazing time touring around these incredible countries, most of which I've never been before and singing jazz every night is a welcome change for me. I am missing my band back home but I know they are busy preparing for my return and our upcoming gigs this winter and also gearing up for the release of our live album which is set to be out in February 2016. I'm constantly posting on my Facebook and Twitter pages, documenting my time on this jazz tour with lots of photos and soon to be footage as well so make sure you check both pages out! Seeing the Polar Ice Caps and glaciers at 5am were pretty special and spending time in Longyearbyen, Norway, the furthest north you can go with civilisation!

Don't you guys forget me back home! I'll be back gigging over there in no time, dates on the gig page - can't wait to see you all!"
