Well, well, well, is that another year over with already? 2017 really was a big one for Cherry in terms of travelling and singing her way around the world. She visited no less than 25 countries singing on her jazz tour as well as venturing into theatre shows too in between writing new music which will be released in 2018!

Says Cherry, "I realise new music is a long time coming, it's almost four years since Catch My Drift came out which I can't believe! However i've been travelling the world - something i've always wanted to do and the opportunity was there so I grabbed it! Plus i've had some exciting and crazy experiences since the last album so more fodder for material. I'm excited to see what happens in 2018, I want to wish you all a very happy new year and thanks as always for your support."

Cherry's put together a collage below of some of her highlights in 2017 and make sure you follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get regular updates on what's happening in the world of Cherry Lee Mewis! Also, 2018 dates are now on the gig page and more news soon on Cherry's 2018 release.
