Message from Cherry...

"Date for your diaries! 2015 marks TEN YEARS since Max Milligan and I started working together, our very first song we recorded was Everybody Here Wants You in 2005 which was included on the Little Girl Blue album in 2007 that album is pictured top right in the photo collage below, with the main pic being taken after that session! Followed by 2009's Southbound Train, 2012's Heard It Here First, 2013's Cherry Pickin' EP and last year's Catch My Drift album - our body of work!! Together with my smokin' band we are performing a special anniversary show on FRIDAY 5th JUNE at Holy Moly's, Bedford Esquires from 7.30pm and would really love if all our supporters could make it! This is a special one this so want you ALL there....if you have any requests of songs you'd like us to perform that we don't usually do from any of our releases, let me know by contacting me at and we'll do our best to include them in the show! We will have projector screens up showing old photos and old footage so this really will be one to remember!"
