New Band Name.......'THE BLACK PEARS'
Photo by Julie-Anne Goode
It's already been over a year since I joined forces with the brilliantly talented Ben Church, to form our little country blues n folk band, and it's taken this long for the boys to decide what we wanna be called. So, because of their love for real ale (I'm always the taxi driver on our gigs!) we've chosen THE BLACK PEARS.... as it's the name of a locally brewed beer here in Malvern.! Also, we've been absolutely thrilled to welcome our newest member, the fab Keith Baker, on drums, whose tasteful and sensitive playing perfectly completes our sound!
So if you enjoy a bit of foot tapping country bluesy tunes and ballads, then please get in touch.......we cover songs from Dylan, JJ Cale, Lucinda Williams, Ry Cooder and many others.
Ben Church on acoustic/slide/electric guitar, harmonica & vocals, Gareth Sampson on bass, myself on acoustic & vocals, and Keith Baker on percussion and drums.
We don't take up too much space, and play at a comfortable noise level!!
.......or you can just book little ol' me, with my guitar or piano..... singing a mixture of classic covers, with a few of my originals thrown into the mix....

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!
