Very belated news! I won a Paul Hamlyn award (as well as these other 9 artists)
This coincided with my old laptop finally expiring so I haven’t been able to update my website. So that was one of the first things I spent some money on and now I am able to write about all the things that have already happened.
I did an interview about the Paul Hamlyn award on the FreakZone with Stuart Maconie. Listen here . They also play ‘Argument’ from the forthcoming Bas Jan album. That’s the first airplay I believe!
You can buy this single for £1 as part of the Lost Map Postcard series and with that you get an exclusive remix of No Sign by JP Buckle (All Seeing I/ Relaxed Muscle)Bas Jan are performing at the Union Chapel AND Dalston Boys Club on Saturday 9th December
I’ve been performing solo a bit. Mainly in Scotland for some reason. Most recently at Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer alongside Alasdair Roberts, Scott H(Frightened Rabbit) and James Yorkston (who programmes the concert series)
And I performed alongside lots of very interesting and clever speakers for Sally O’Reilly’s ‘The Doubting Colloquy’ at The Whitechapel Art Gallery. I wrote a new song with some words by Sally. The event was about DOUBT, a in Sally’s novel ‘Crude’. Again I will upload a recording if one transpires.
For those of you that have read this far! I will be a couple of tunes with Patrick Wolf at his Bush Hall gig 18.12/17
