"Welcome, and thank you for taking time to visit!"
NEW SINGLE OUT SOON........
'NOT A DAY GOES BY'
Thought I'd get in the studio again, and brush off the cobwebs! A song I wrote to encourage a friend a couple of years ago - it's a real up and positive song, and you'll be humming the chorus for ages after!!

The 'Church Lee Sampson Band' is getting geared up for more gigs this year, so if you enjoy a bit of foot tapping country bluesy tunes, then please do get in touch....featuring songs from Dylan, JJ Cale, and many others. We are a trio featuring Ben Church on acoustic/slide/electric guitar, harmonica & vocals, Gareth Sampson on bass, and myself on acoustic & vocals. We don't take up too much space, and play at a comfortable noise level!!
.......or you can just book little ol' me, and my guitar..... singing a mixture of classic covers, with a few of my originals thrown into the mix....
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, or the contact Carol page. x

I'm thrilled that 4 of my songs over the last year or so have been picked as tracks of the week on BBC Hereford & Worcester, featured by their 'Introducing' programme.....exciting to have heard them played every day for the week that they were featured!

**All my songs are available on all the major music download and streaming sites worldwide......so please look me up!**
It took just 4 weeks of sales, to exceed the goal of £500 - and we reached an amazing £1,354.36 by Christmas.....so a great big THANK YOU to everyone for supporting this project!
*The last Charity Concert in aid of Cancer Research UK, held at the West Malvern Social Club, was a fantastic success, and was filled to capacity! We raised £601.73!
Absolutely thrilled....thank you to everyone who participated and supported us!

Back in the summer of last year, I spent a few days back in my home island of Jersey, where I had the privilege of chatting to the lovely Cathy Le Feuvre on BBC Radio Jersey - here is the interview......
'Hallelujah is our Song'
Charity Single, in aid of Cancer Research UK
(I am still fundraising through the sale of this CD)
Latest update: we have raised over £1, 500 through the sale of this CD, and have way exceeded my original goal of £1,000 through people's kind donations......... THANK YOU SO MUCH!
(It was a really sad day, when Gill lost her battle on 5th January last year, but she had been so encouraged, knowing that the money raised would be helping people like her in the future...... I can still hear her saying now....
'ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!' ............ x)
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
