June Tunes

Wow – June already.  I’ve been beavering away on a new EP which I’m aiming to have ready for my Edinburgh Fringe gig with the full band.  (Sat 13th Aug since you asked 🙂

This Sunday, I’m very happy to be supporting 2 stunning singer songwriters at the Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh – Lorna Brooks & Jennifer John.

Lorna Brooks and Jennifer John

Lorna Brooks is a revered name in the Edinburgh singer songwriter world having released 3 stunning albums and worked with the likes of John Martyn, Janis Ian,  Loudon Wainwright III,  Jimmy Sommerville,  Candi Staton and Eric Bibb

I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer John on a series of gigs with Big Big Sing last year and not only is she one of the UK’s most respected singers, she has also written and worked with an enviable catalog of music legends (Brian Eno, Damon Albarn, Paco Pena and Imogen Heap)

This will be a rare collaboration show, with yours truly opening up!  You should give yourself the gift of an extended weekend with a Sunday night of amazing live music.

Finally, tonight I’m performing with local heroes Douglas Kay and Alan R Davison as part of “A Songwriter’s Circle” for the Corstorphine Festival at Lucy’s Cafe.  Doors 7:30

Kirsten Adamson EP Launch

One of my many music projects is playing electric bass and singing for the very talented Kirsten Adamson.  This Saturday is the Edinburgh launch of her debut EP “Impossibilities” and I’m looking forward to opening up the show with a solo set.

Also billed are a streamlined version of The OK Social Club.

Get yourself down there and check out Kirsten’s music which has already been sneaking around the airwaves.Kirsten Adamson poster

A Songwriter’s Circle

I’m currently on tour with acclaimed singer-songwriter Adam Holmes and very chuffed to be opening up as one of the support acts (along with fellow Adam Holmes & the Embers band mate Colin Train).

Tonight we return to the lovely Drouthy Cobbler, Elgin.

I’m also proud to be participating in a couple of A Songwriter’s Circle events. Conceived by singer-songwriter Douglas Kay and inspired by the BBC Songwriter’s Circle Series these involve a group of us performing our songs, discussing the writing process them and possibly a wee bit of collaboration.

The first of these is at The Steeple, Newburgh featuring Douglas Kay, Alan R Davison, John Sloan and myself.

On August 9th we’re together again with another pal, the supremely talented Kirsten Adamson at House Concerts Moffat.

More gigs on the gigs page including a return to the Edinburgh Fringe with my band and a few very special guests.

Tickets on sale at the Fringe Box Office from June 4th but if you’re on my mailing list you may get a wee special deal…

Adam Holmes tour support

I’m up in the Scottish highlands this week playing guitar and singing backing for the awesome Adam Holmes. I’m also opening up the shows with a back to basics solo set of just voice & guitar. No loops, no harmoniser, no beat-boxing. I even left my nuts at home.

Adam’s album was long-listed for the Scottish Album of the Year awards and is currently bobbing around the iTunes charts with 5 star reviews. You should check it out, your ears will love you for it.

Broadway Baby review of Paul Gilbody

Since my laptopis the extent of my “marketing machine”, exposure like this is a massive boost – huge thanks to Jenni Ajderian for taking the time to come and review.

“With a tight band behind him and an arsenal of fantastic songs, Gilbody will be returning to the Jazz Bar on the 24th, and I urge you to join him there”

Hope to see some of you on Sunday after you’ve had your roast chicken – 2:30pm at The Jazz Bar.
