CB September 9th 2009 (with Canvey Island + London Blackmarket)

The date was 9/9/9, and somewhere in TV land, Derren Brown was trying to predict the National Lottery. Here on Curveballs however, we were making our own magic…

 

 

Tonight I was joined in the studio by Canvey Island, aka local singer-songwriter Chris Farrance. An engaging and emotive listen, Chris treated us to 3 songs in the studio, featuring his unusual set-up which includes a loop pedal, giving his songs a fascinating and unique multi-layered edge. He can next be seen performing at The Lauriston on September 25th – check www.myspace.com/canveyisland for more information and dates. Click below to hear the tracks performed in the studio:

 

Big Bang

Hope I Never Know

Notes

 

I also chatted to Nick and Brad from locals London Blackmarket, fresh from their appearance on the Guitar Hero stage at Offset Festival. The band are regulars on the local circuit (indeed, they went on to play Colchester and Romford over the weekend) and are planning to release a new single, The Hardest Stone to Throw, later in the year. The band can next be seen at the Barhouse, Chelmsford on September 23rd, with plenty more dates in the pipeline – check www.londonblackmarket.co.uk or www.myspace.com/londonblackmarket for the full list.
