Hepworth signed to Chromium Records in 2006 and released his first single: Eternity, which went straight into the top 100, in Switzerland, for one week. At the same time Eternity was synced to a cigarette advert in Mexico for two weeks. By the end of the month Chromium went into receivership. Eternity was then picked up by Matchbox Records and re-released as part of a compilation album. Eternity can still be found on Spotify, only because we can’t work out how to remove it, and to this day, currently stands as the 1.7 millionth most popular song on Amazon. In Hepworth’s own words “I hate that song”.

After experiencing the dark side of the music industry, Hepworth decided to follow a different path. Sailing his 1906 Dutch barge from London, he got her stuck upon the mud flats of Suffolk, where he ended up settling, and became the brain child of Blue Bus Tour: a 1962, split screen, VW camper van called Dorothy, which he converted into a mobile, solar powered stage complete with lighting rig ([url hidden]/bluebustour). Hepworth, along with a few musical friends have spent the past few years driving around the country setting up ‘pop up’ gigs of original music and festivals in various fields and woods and sometimes at established festivals too.

Although Hepworth has been off the public scene as a performing/recording artists for a few years, through friends and his Blue Bus Tour, he has been performing and writing continually under the radar. In the past few years he has shared the stage with the likes of Beth Orton, Bastille, Turin Brakes, Ryan Keen, Kevin Pearce, Seasfire, Tom McRae, Kimberly Anne, Jamie Lawson, Sam Brookes, Scott Matthews, Kal Lavelle, Jake Morley, Fiona Bevan, and many more.

In 2016 Hepworth started recording again, and is currently working with Jesse Quin (Keane) on his next EP.
