  6. Here’s the penultimate Anthologies video from the Deer Shed Festival 2012, Grant K Fennell. This young man has a terrific voice and an excellent ear for simple but beautiful melodies, which I think this video proves. Please share, this chap deserves to be heard by a much wider audience.

  8. My photo of Benjamin Francis Leftwich has appeared in several music magazines, including the NME and The Fly. It has been heavily cropped but it’s nice to see one my pictures featured in the gig adverts! Next task is to get a credit in one of the magazines…

  9. What better way to spend a day off than at a brewery? Teaming up with Revolutions Brewery, Sam Airey has created a dry stout called ‘The Blackout’. It’s currently available on cask in a few places, but will also be available in bottles very soon. The boozy release will coincide with a couple of new downloads from Sam too, more details will come when the bottling process is complete! I’m currently putting together a short video/hopumentary of the day and some pics, I’m hearing some good reviews of the 4.5% creation already… 



  10. The second Anthologies Deer Shed session comes from London based ‘dream folk’ group Pale Seas. They braved the festival campsite to perform for us, have a watch/share!

  13. Last week I took some promo photos for Sam Airey, which will help promote his 2nd EP. The release, called ‘A Marker and a Map’, is out on the 26th of March. Sam’s music has been played on Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music and BBC Radio Wales, with Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Bethan Elfyn and Adam Walton all supporting him along the way. He has also recorded a session at Maida Vale studios, and featured on Channel 4’s Freshly Squeezed. This photo was taken in Otley, on a slightly cloudy/rainy day. The end result was some very muddy shoes.    

  14. Another Anthologies session to look at here - this time it’s the turn of She Makes War, filmed in the home of the folk behind ‘A Negative Narrative’, a top website everyone should browse. The video includes a photo slideshow of a trip to the zoo in the 80s. Obviously.
