THE CARRIAGE JESMOND AUG 5th (AFTERNOON SHOW)
I’ve written songs that have been recorded by Celine Dion, Sheena Easton, Elkie Brooks, The Hollies, The Searchers, Tygers of Pan Tang, Baby Ford, Colin Blunstone, Sarah Brightman, Wavelength, Elaine Page, Bruce Ruffin, and Chris Farlowe, Middle Of The Road and many others
I also wrote and produced some key recordings during the ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal’ (NWOBHM) including Raven, Venom (both huge influences on rock giants, Metallica) and Tygers of Pan Tang,
In all the above I’ve been a backroom boy. Now, for the first time ever I’m going to perform an acoustic set of songs I wrote for the above artists in an afternoon show at The Carriage in Jesmond on August 5th. He will be joined by Barry Race on percussion and Richard Naisbett on Keyboards for an all original set of songs. Included in the set are songs I wrote for Sheena, Elkie, Celine and Tygers of Pan Tang as well as new ones from his last album plus previews from his forthcoming album.
Other acts appearing that afternoon are Meiosis, St James Infirmary and Yakka Doon.
As a professional songwriter, I’ve had a great palette to work with having written for some fine vocalists. Now the tables have turned and I somehow have to replicate those performances with huge ranges and vocal gymnastics. It’s quite a challenge as I’m no great singer but I’ve worked on it and I’m looking forward to the challenge”
The Carriage is a cosy little pub in an old disused railway station. Serving homemade vegan food and cask ales. It’s just two minutes walk from Jesmond Metro.
The Carriage show is part of a series of events promoted by Martin Thompson. Martin promotes gigs all over the North-East as well as performing himself. He also happens to be my Nephew – nepotism at it’s best!
