New Bristol Project. 28th Jan @ The Island.

Only you can reset it are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley.

The duos live work is largely improvisational and experimental – bringing a range of textures, layers and sounds and churning them into a dizzying mix of genre and form.

Independent Venue Week

I suppose most musicians and music lovers know the importance of our independent venues.  Between 28th Jan – 2nd Feb is a week dedicated to independent venues, where we will see some of the most import and historic venues around the country come together for a 6 day long series of gigs.

I’m really happy to be involved in such an exciting string of gigs.  Im playing in the Louisiana, Bristol, and am so delighted to see Southampton (my home town) on the map with their wonderful venue, The Joiners. – Celebrating its 45th anniversary this year.

The Louisiana holds many memories of many gigs for me.  It always houses a varied program of live acts, and is a real treat to go and see people play there.

Once I got involved with producing my own electronic music a few years ago, a very nice promoter put me on Fear of Fiction nights.  He kept on booking me, kept supporting me, and I kept bringing friends (and im eternally grateful for their support too), until he booked me for Simple Things Festival when things started to change.  Before Simple Things I was playing in the Louisiana on nights that were largely indie/rock, which i found nerve wracking, being an experimental-ambient-bass-music-type-producer. The Louisiana accommodated me, and the audiences supported me despite this, and were still interested even though i had (what looked then like) a strange set up, just a laptop and a nano kontrol pad!- balanced on two bar stools.   The Louisiana, their punters and staff have been very important to me when I was starting out as a musician trying to get into live music scene in Bristol.

Once I was booked for Simple Things Festival in 2011, I had a string of festival dates and things started to snowball, and since then I have had the chance to play at some fantastic events and an array of venues across Bristol, South Wales, Southampton & London.
The Louisiana played a huge part in me developing my live set to what it has got to today, enabling me to try something out that I wasnt sure was going to work, or whether people would like it, or what direction it would take.

So, hats off to independent venue week!   I hope to see some of you down at the Louisiana on Thursday 30th January.

“Independent Venue Week is a fantastic idea. Small venues are the lifeblood of British music. There’s a particular kind of excitement when you go to a gig at these venues. They’re visceral and intimate.”
- Phil Selway, Radiohead

Frank Turner
“Without small, independent venues, there’d be no small, independent bands, and without them there’d be no big acts either; these places are the lifeblood of any music scene, and any music fan should care about them and support Independent Venue Week”. – Frank Turner

Baths 22.11.2013 @ The Oval Space, London

On Friday I had the pleasure of going to watch Baths (Will Wiesenfeld) at The Oval Space, in London.

I performed one of my first ever gigs supporting Baths, in Bristol’s Fire station, and felt it was necessary to see what he was up to. (That and that I pretty much got through 2010 by listening to his album Cerulean).

He has a new album out now, Obsidian (2013), which is what most of his set what about on Friday.

He wore shorts. The music was top.

02.11.2012. Crisis Project release single ‘Dice’

This weekend, tomorrow, I will be joining Jilk and supporting The Crisis Project at their launch party at Cafe Kino. 
Its at 8pm, free entry, and a lovely little venue. 

Those of you that came to my record launch would have seen The Crisis Project play a lovely set (and heard Jilk do the sound). Most of you have since asked me about them, where you can buy their stuff, listen to more, and watch their hypnotic visuals. (Cafe Kino is the answer to that).  But also here’s some links and stuff to ear up. 

Enjoy, 

See you there.

A Very New Everything – artwork reveal

Cover image    cover image 2

cover image 3

cover image 4

As my music is very visual, the artwork was just as important as the audio.  I chose to use images I’d taken whilst travelling around Scotland for the EP artwork, somewhere which can look very baron and harsh, a landscape that could easily be another planet, paired with a reference to The Prisoner (70s TV show).  I have also took on the task of expanding the visual side live, by working with some visual artists who shared my vision and helped me realise it in a live context.
