Q&A: Stylusboy

A woman gets into her car after a busy work day, which ended on a high note with a relaxed and positive meeting. She pops a CD into the slot and pulls out of the car park. As the music starts up, she takes a deep breath. By the time she reaches her house, she is calm, the stress of the day is forgotten. Because on her drive home she’s been taken on a journey - by one man, his guitar and the stories he creates.

Guide: Tapas Day in Coventry

The world now celebrates almost anything and everything.

Q&A: Micky Blouse

Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to the single. I’m both surprised and flattered by the response so far. The Micky Blouse project was created quite a few years ago. After sixth form I dabbled in a few different things and music/ song writing was the thing that peaked my interest. The notion of seeing something through from conception to completion was fascinating and writing tunes allowed me to do this with massively satisfying results.

And I'm in that 327%.

Review: Ellipses Presents

In the sold out upstairs of the New Albany Pub last Saturday night we were lucky enough to squeeze into the inaugural Ellipse Presents. The first of what promises to be a regular haunt for those looking to soak up some local live music from all over the musical spectrum. Those in attendance certainly got their moneys worth in a stacked bill consisting of four great acts ranging from soulful acoustic to psych rock, a rouge smoke machine and a fire alarm keen to join in on backing vocals at times.
