This is exactly what happened last week with Birmingham-based singer-songwriter Jessie Reid. I first met Jessie at the end of April, when she was supporting Bryde at the Cuban Embassy. She got in touch a few days later saying she needed new press shots, and I knew this was my opportunity to finally head to the War Memorial Park in Coventry and make good use of all the blossoming trees.
