Three inventive, provocative and intelligent songwriters
Featuring joyful, funny and heartfelt songs about everything from cosmologist Carl Sagan to soap superstar Adam Woodyatt, the fourth album by indie-folk legend Gavin Osborn is an eclectic masterpiece.
Mixing the personal with the political, expect a glorious set of lyrical loveliness from one of the best songwriters in the country. Familiar to BBC Radio 4 listeners, Gavin has also co-written heart-warming story-shows with comedian Daniel Kitson for Regents Park Open Air Theatre, toured the UK supporting Belle & Sebastian, played sold-out shows at Hammersmith Apollo as part of Robin Ince’s Book Club, as well as every single Latitude Festival.
“Simultaneously hilarious and heart-rending songs about the difficulties of love in a modern world” - The Independent
“Gavin Osborn showed exactly how to meld erudition, wit and acoustic guitar... a brilliantly accomplished singer-songwriter with touchingly quirky lyrics” – Chortle
“Funny and touching. Osborn walks a similar tightrope [to Loudon Wainwright III] but remains perfectly balanced” - Stewart Lee, Sunday Times
Chris Webb sings upbeat modern folk songs with intricate guitar work and whimsical narrative. Based in Bristol and playing all over the country, Chris racks up at least 100 gigs a year and has just released his 4th full-length album.
Cécile is a singer-songwriter based in Bristol, UK. Her debut EP Ten Past Twelve was released in 2015 and is the fruit of collaboration with musician/producer Jack Cookson. Cécile sings in both French and English with a voice that silences rooms, accompanying herself with gentle nylon string guitar arrangements, resulting in a harmonious and emotive texture similar to the likes of Kate Rusby and Leonard Cohen. She has recently toured East France and has been performing in the UK throughout the year, both headline and support.
