  • CLAP HANDS MUSIC CLUB #1

    April 25, 2014

    The Clap Hands Music Club is a songwriters circle that myself and fellow Coventry musician WES FINCH put on a few days ago. Wes and I have known each other for a long time and we had talked about putting on an event together for a while. After lots of emails and chatting, The Clap Hands Music Club, named after a TOM WAITS song, was born. The fantastically atmospheric BLUE BISTRO was the venue, which…

  • LIVE SHOW – THE ALBUM LAUNCH

    December 18, 2013

    BY STEVE A month ago today our debut album was officially released into the world. Two days before that we held the launch party for our album at The Tin Music and Arts, which is the venue that is formerly known as Taylor Johns. It’s a lovely quirky venue right on the canal on Coventry, in fact it is in the coal volts. We had spent a long time planning, organising and promoting the launch…

  • 1. JULIE COLLINGS I discovered Julie Collings’ lovely gentle folk music (with a slighty electro twist) back in the day on Myspace and have really enjoyed it ever since. I’ve got her first album and over the years we have become friends on Twitter and Facebook and one day we will actually do a show together. This is a free download from her new album which comes out soon. I really like Julie’s voice and…

  • So last Wednesday I drove over to play a little show in Birmingham with my good friend JESS MORGAN who was on tour supporting her wonderful new album ‘Aye Me’.

Anyway, we drove over and had good conversations about new music,…

  • I thought it would be really interesting to ask some of the wonderful people I know to write a blog post. I have asked various people and will post one each month. I have given them no rules or ideas! So first up it is the very talented Wes Finch… MUSICAL DISCOVERIES It’s a wonderful warm feeling to ‘discover’ a new artist or record, something that is new to you at least, and fall into…

  • I thought I would make a little video blog for each of the dates on my Whole Picture Tour. So here is my first one. I edited on a little app called Splice on my IPhone which is a great little bit of kit. Ill try and get some footage of me included in the new one! Anyway I hope you enjoy…. This gig came about when I got in touch with Milly Winter via…

  • A rather crazy week…

    April 18, 2011

    So last weekend Ben from Lazy Acre Records emailed me with an idea for Record Store Day which was on April 16th. He wanted me to release a special single and do an online streaming gig from my house! Easy, yeah no worries I thought! haha! A great idea! Ben wanted me to record an Idlewild song but after much thought we decided we couldn’t release it on a single for sale as we didn’t have…

  •   Wes Finch is a stunningly talented Coventry based singer songwriter who plays country blues folk, well at least I think that is a fair description. I have known Wes for a number of years and he is a brilliant guitar player and has a voice well beyond his years. He plays with numerous musicians, sometimes known as ‘The Dirty Band’. I would completely recommend you have a litttle listen (no, a very BIG listen!!)…
