5th July 2008: Colour Light House Launch

Lock Works Café Bar, Light House, Wolverhampton

About the Artists

With sweet, fragile vocals reminiscent of Will Oldham at his cheeriest and a gentle touch when it comes to his folk and country arrangements, James’ music is more at home on a Midwest American porch than sleepy Sutton Coldfield.

After a couple of releases with Buick 6 (later The Toques) and two Peel sessions, James put out his self-produced Hailah, Hailah. His third album, Count to Ten and Start Again is released in August 2008.

This Cambridge-based duo are definitely one to watch. Upbeat laptop-pop overlaid with glockenspiel and guitar perfectly compliment Victoria’s delicate but feisty vocals. Their single ‘Clash’, from the Super Computer EP, has received airplay on BBC 6Music and we wouldn’t be surprised if big things lie ahead for them.

One of Birmingham’s finest singer-songwriters graces Colour once again with his intricate indie pop. His new record The Broken Family DaySaver Tour is out now, filled with songs about “forest lynchings, seaside jaunts, day trips and impossible summers”.

Rounding out the Bearos Records artists for this event is Richard Burke, an artist who in his own words, tries to “fuse my love of uncompromising, underground punk rock/indie with a more melodic and lyrical loveliness”. Richard’s laid-back folk is certainly easy to admire.
