Officer @ Bedford Arms Balham 5th May 2016


A superb set by an interesting  duo. The audience was engaged throughout and happy to share their vocals when asked! A packed sell out Bedford Arms enjoyed this set. A few photographs of DC and Lou that really capture maybe not only the enjoyment of the audience but also of themselves doing the set.

Hunter and The Bear @ Bedford Arms Balham 5th May 2016


A few photographs from a truly excellent gig. Credit to the Bedford Arms a wonderful venue with superb atmosphere, lighting and staff. The venue itself is like a mini version of The Roundhouse in Camden.

You can see other postings and photos of the band from earlier this year in some other of my articles.

They have just released their first video for their single of the upcoming EP called Lions

Lions is a song that hits you straight away as being melodic, interesting and with a novel vocal style. The voice although being unmistakably Swedish at times the intonation is almost reggae like.

There are many new bands out there at the moment but this is one to listen to as they offer something new and different, music with no nonsense. I am never sure to ascribe a style to a band is either helpful or correct, as many bands cross many boundaries, but if had to put them in a genre it would be the curious one of Folk/Indie. But undoubtedly it is an interesting voice singing interesting songs and this band should go far. You can compare singers endlessly but the voice is on a par if not superior to voices like Mumford and sons, and that is no exaggeration.

Carl Olander played The Cavendish Arms and here are some photos from the gig.

Novustory @229 The Venue London April 2016. This is a band to watch


Novustory are a 3 piece Progressive Alt/Indie Rock band from Bury, near Manchester,  with Imogen Storey (vocals), Declan Brown ( guitar) and James Duckworth (drums). They have just released their first EP Mirrors. Novustory were one of five bands performing at 229 The Venue in London and frankly were amazing. The event was superbly presented by Absent Kelly and gave five new bands exposure to a London audience. The energy and superb stage performance from Novustory suggested a long previous gigging career however they are relatively new. The sound of their live performance was little different from their EP. To photograph such a band is not a chore at all with such fascinating band members. Enjoy the photographs and go listen to the music.

Any information you need about the band can be found in one of my previous articles including links to their music
