***PAUL LITTLEWOOD***

paul-littlewood

 

Paul Littlewood is a British musician and singer-songwriter, originally from Swinton, South Yorkshire. He has released music under his own name and with a number of bands including Fights, Fallen Trees and Eastern Seaboard Radio Station. He also runs DIY label, Anklebreka Records. He has just released his latest album The Wireless Relay Service.

Paul makes atmospheric music from the soul via the heart. It has a raw quality to it, full of wide open spaces & emotional leanings that pull you in like a venus fly trap, linger too long and swoosh-you are his!BBC Radio 6

***E.R. THORPE***

e-r-thorpe

 

Having called time on The Listeners, E.R. Thorpe embarks on a fully solo career.

Thorpe was born into music – her mother taught her to finger-pick, introducing her to the music of PJ Harvey, Sandy Denny, Susan Vega, Roy Harper and Bob Dylan along the way; Her father Kevin was well respected on the blues scene for his albums with Out Of The Blue; And her aunt managed Welsh psychedelic legends Man.

Despite this heritage Thorpe has shaped her own evocative sound. Sometimes wilfully naive, sometimes considered and precise – her choice of chords is particular and unusual and her finger-picking weaves a strange atmosphere – the likes of which you’d more likely find in a Lynch film or a novel by Bolano than in the sculpted folk of her inspirations. And like those who inspire her – Nick Cave, Patti Smith, William Blake, she loves to muse on nature & religion: God, the devil, good and evil, and like the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood she tries to tell it like it is – to reveal both the beauty and the devastation of life: Red Dust portrays human insignificance under darkening skies; Dinner For One traces the fading past of a destroyed relationship; You wouldn’t think that it took years for Thorpe to accept her own arresting voice and lyrical vision. Time well spent in distillation perhaps: This is music that is close to the source. These are songs, born of tradition, alive in the present day, revealing & fragile, executed spare and sharp.

The brand new EP ‘Lion’ is out now.

***ANYTOWN***

Anytown

 

The songwriting and vocal talents of Matt Taylor made him part of the creative driving force behind Sheffield’s premier folk-rockers, Dead Like Harry, a band who have built a big reputation in recent years for their innate showmanship and rousing tunes. As Anytown Matt explores a more acoustic based, folk sound, from-the-heart songs that have won commissions for TV and exposure on national and local radio, as well as invitations to perform at major festivals and supports for major artists. Anytown has also featured fellow Dead Like Harry members Alice Faraday and Robin Baker among others. Tonight Matt plays a solo set.

They sing intricate tales of people and places and Winter Sky is a beautifully crafted song” – Sheffield Scenester Magazine

***RORY CANNON***

Up & coming folk rock singer/songwriter Rory Cannon has been described as a flawless guitar talent with an enchanting voice. He’s been gigging regularly around the North for the last year or so and recently released the EP Lies.
