Roots-influenced singer songwriter Tom Dibb is bringing his good-vibe acoustic music back to the UK after completing his 35,000km overland tour from the UK to Australia, A Pickle Down Under. Having performed to tens of thousands of people in 24 countries on his 18 month tour, Tom is back in the UK and has just released his debut album, Ground Up, influenced heavily by his travels. Ground Up is a 12 track LP, the first single from which is Hit The Road.
Solo or full band, get set for a deep flowing, gutsy, captivating performance. A live tour is currently being booked for Winter 17/18, and the album was released on Chapel Dog Records on the 30th of September, 2017.
Brought up in slough. Currently situated in a VW t25 some where in the UK.
For the past 5 years I've been Living from my 1989 Camper Van (Pickle) touring up, down and around the UK playing VW/Music festivals, Caffe Nero's, Streets, pubs and clubs in an attempt to share my songs with as many of you as possible. In February 2016 I embarked on an epic overland musical tour from the UK to Australia and am currently completing my debut Album and producing a book and documentary of my adventure "A Pickle Down Under".
The music is an expression of my experiences, of people, situations, places, society, growth as an individual, and emotions felt and displayed as a result of it all. Stories with folk roots, threads of reggae, country, latin, blues, and everything else I've ever heard.
See you down the line.
Inspired by locations, sounds and places found on his epic cycling adventures (4000 miles across Europe / 2000 miles across the UK), Paul Cheese’s live show is upbeat, rhythmic and innovative. Think stomp pads, samples, carbon fibre guitars and crop sprinklers!
These sounds can also be heard on the albums ‘Just for the Record’ and ‘Just for the Record Too’
Paul Cheese is currently creating his third solo album, collecting inspiration from locations across the world. To see/hear more, visit http://www.paulcheesemusic.com/
Mike Wilton is best known as being the front man of local lot 'The Standard Lamps'. Their big break came when they supported Wilko Johnson Band at The Forum.
Following this, ‘The Lamps’ (as they are affectionately known), have supported The Who on their Who Hits 50 arena tour in 2014. Reviewing them alongside The Who at Leeds, Mojo Magazine acclaimed The Standard Lamps as “Tight and bluesy”, adding that they, “At times look and sound uncannily like The Who of 40 years ago”. The Standard Lamps also supported The Bluetones at various 20th anniversary shows.
