Todays radio show for your armchair listening pleasure...

I had two absolutely amazing live acts on my radio show today, massive THANKYOUs to Pete Roe & Amos Zimmerman…

Here’s the Soundcloud upload, listen at your leisure… Hope you enjoy it…

The show was dedicated to George Jones following his sad passing away this past week plus not one but two amazing live acts in the studio…

Pete Roe live session:
Pete Roe is an amazing new talent with one of the most interesting albums we’ve heard this year. Cutting his teeth as a studio member of Laura Marling’s band Pete has created an album that is as beautiful to the ears as it is to the eyes housed in an exquisite circular, Neo Art Nouveau hand printed case. It looks like a quirky Pandoras Box and the album has a similar aural effect, subtley drawing you in and consuming you with its siren-like charms. Obviously Pete’s guitar style owes a great debt to British Folk guitarists of the 60’s such as Bert Jansch and John Martyn but this is juxtaposed with an Americana feel and a nod to folks like Neil Young, Paul Simon and Ryan Adams. He also has a foot in the present having been in demand as support to such people as Mumford & sons, The Old Crowe Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe’s Magnetic Zeroes. The album launch will be perfectly placed in the beautiful surroundings of St Mark’s Church in trendy Dalston, London on Thursday 9th May 2013 but we have him first live in the studio today.

Amos Zimmerman live session:
For several years now Amos Zimmerman has been contributing unique songwriting to the independant music scene in Israel, an uncompromising flower of originality in the muddy swamps of musical monotony. With songs perhaps paradoxically characterised by Americana hook-lines and Country Melodies, Zimmerman throws in Blues, Folk and Rock’n’Roll to his bare-boned, honest lyrics and brooding, sensitive melodies.

+ Our usual featurettes including 'Celluloid Country' where we look at a film which features Americana significantly in its soundtrack.

+Competitions gig ticket and cd giveaways.

+ The best of all the latest, up-coming Country & Americana releases.
