Miles Mosley – Live @ Ritter Butzke

26 November 2017 |

Thursday 16th November, Berlin

Man, do I love the West Coast Get Down. Whereas some jazz heads think they’re all muscle and lack soul, I see them more as rock stars playing jazz: performers who know how to put … Read More

Zara McFarlane – Live @ Prince Charles

12 November 2017 |

Monday 6th November, Berlin

I honestly don’t think that calling Zara McFarlane the greatest female jazz singer that this decade has produced is an overstatement. Her voice is not only world-class, but, in terms of richness and sheer power, it’s … Read More

Starcrawler – Live @ Bedfords Crypt

10 November 2017 |

Friday 3rd November, Norwich

Wow! “Best gig since seeing Nirvana play at the Norwich Arts Centre in 1989”, is what I heard more than one person say when walking out of The Crypt after this gig. There again, this performance … Read More

Gabriel Garzón-Montano – Live @ Auster Club

10 November 2017 |

Monday 30th October, Berlin

Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s Jardin is my favourite R&B record of 2017. And by a mile. Though others saw little to no progression from his 2014 debut EP Bishouné: Alma del Huila, I found additional layers of … Read More

Richard Thompson – Live @ Cadogan Hall

7 November 2017 |

Monday 23rd October, London

Five decades have passed since the much acclaimed guitarist and singer-songwriter Richard Thompson made his debut with folk rock legend Fairport Convention. He’s one of Rolling Stone’s Top 20 Guitarists of All Time and probably one … Read More

Slowdive – Live @ Huxleys Neue Welt

5 October 2017 |

Tuesday 3rd October, Berlin

It’s difficult to overstate Slowdive’s influence on modern indie music: The Horrors, Tame Impala, DIIV, Grizzly Bear and even The xx have all borrowed elements from the newly reformed English five-piece. Although Slowdive weren’t the … Read More

Camp Bestival 2017 – Live Review + Photos

15 August 2017 |

Thursday 27th July – Sunday 30th July, Dorset

Day one. Tent packed, camera stuff sorted, beer tokens in hand and rain on the forecast… it’s that time again for my favourite of all festivals. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s Camp … Read More

Soundwave 2017 – Live Review

11 August 2017 |

You know you’re getting old when the smallest and most chilled out of the major European festivals is the one that sounds the most appealing. With a capacity of under 2000, Croatia’s Soundwave is as intimate as it gets, and … Read More

Primavera Sound 2017 – Live Review

16 June 2017 |

Even with the news of Frank Ocean pulling out a week before the 16th edition of Primavera Sound, it didn’t dampen the electricity of the musical utopia. With the Barcelona sun shining down and it’s mammoth line up boasting some … Read More

Echobelly – Live @ Norwich OPEN

13 June 2017 |

Sunday 21st May, Norwich

It’s a welcome return to the live scene as Echobelly reform and play at OPEN in Norwich on a Sunday night with a packed crowd of mainly 40-somethings. Unfairly branded as Brit-Pop back in 1993, Echobelly … Read More
