Over the last twelve months Sweet Baboo has played at Glastonbury, Latitude, Green Man, SXSW and The Camden Crawl, as well as touring Germany with Johnny Flynn and the UK with Islet. He has also been invited to record sessions for BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley, Huw Stephens and Stuart Maconie. Notably, Black’s song How I’d Live My Life (AKA The Bumblebee Song) soundtracked a series of TV spots for the Visit Wales tourist board campaign in 2010.

Black’s productivity is all the more remarkable given his extra-curricular activities, which have seen him working with an ever-growing array of musicians. This year alone Black has played on albums by Cate Le Bon, Slow Club and H. Hawkline, and has been a regular part of the touring line-ups for all three bands. He has also performed with and produced Euros Childs, The Voluntary Butler Scheme and Spencer McGarry Season and collaborated onstage with Gruff Rhys.
Girl Under A Tree will be released via Shape Records on 19th Sept 2011 on limited 10 inch white vinyl / download.
