I am a British musician, songwriter and voiceover artist currently based in Moscow. This short film made by RT (formerly Russia Today) tells the story of how I gave up the bottle in a country with a reputation for heavy drinking. When I develop a taste for drink? What’s my most embarrassing drinking story? What was the last straw? How was I saved and long have I been on the wagon? All is revealed in this RT film.
It was shot in Moscow in early 2020 over a period of a few days, culminating in filming a live gig by my band at the fabled Rhythm & Blues Cafe, Moscow’s oldest music club founded just after Peretroika.
Here are some stills from the shoot:
