4th June 2008: Men Diamler at Alchemy, Wolverhampton

About the Artists

Men Diamler

men diamler

One man and his guitar rarely sounds this unusual and surprising. With vocals that range from an operatic croon to a crazed bark and an idiosyncratic guitar playing style, Men Diamler plays off-kilter folk blues like you’ve never heard. Hints of Swordfishtrombones-era Tom Waits and the freak-folk of early Devendra Banhart are present on Sea Shanties for the Far Inland, out now on Dulcett Thud.

Dan Whitehouse

Dan grew up in California before going to school in Wolverhampton, and this transatlantic upbringing is apparent in his shimmering, confessional folk, which displays an abundance of lyrical talent. A familiar face to many on the Midlands live scene, he has supported artists including Josh Ritter, David Kitt and Maria McKee.

Dan also runs Live @ Lock Works, an acoustic night at one of Colour’s future venues.
