About Me
KETE BOWERS “ROAD”

Kete Bowers is a singer / songwriter born in Liverpool. His music crosses many genres from Country, Rock, Americana, Folk and Blues.


Liverpool born singer/songwriter makes a confident début with this joyous and well produced CD.
Gifted in his use of words his lyrics sing of experience and love.

At the heart of this album, and I suspect of his artistic muse is the loving memory of his late grandmother Isobel.

Her name is the title of the second track on the album.

Her loss is deeply felt and incomprehensible, “And I don’t want the flowers to see you cry”.

Musically subtle the CD rewards repeat listenings.

Little moments stick in the memory.

Remembering time spent with a lover,“I still got the shoes that walked the streets of Le Havre I still got a picture of me and you in some bar…My summer has gone honey it’s bitter cold here”
.words taken from the song ‘Stay’.

Love braved is never wasted time. ‘Regret’.

“Baby on a night like this, when heaven opens its eyes baby you come to mind and our golden times”.

Bowers has a poet’s heart and a musician’s sensitivity.

Initially classed as a folk/country release his music will cross many more boundaries than just these.

Self produced this CD presents a new and interesting talent to keep an eye on and check out when he sets out on the ‘Road’ to play for a live audience.

I feel sure after listening to his album you will certainly not be disappointed.

ROAD ****
Sugar Line Records 201001C

A Liverpool born-and bred singer-songwriter, Kete Bowers’ debut album is one of the finest debuts I’ve heard in many a moon. Though there is a strong American country flavour throughout, Bowers doesn’t make the mistake of trying to sound American, but sings in a strong and compelling style all his very own. He is also a top-notch songwriter, up there with such other rootsy country tunesmiths as Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell and John Prine. His songs come from deep down in his soul and are coloured by his own experiences. As a child he listened to classic pop and country records at his grandmother’s house. He recalls those memories with Isobel, even name-checking Jim Reeves. This self-produced album features some outstanding musical arrangements with BJ Cole on pedal steel, Mark Flanagan (guitar), Roger Eno (piano, accordion, Hammond organ), Hannah Scott (cello) and the solid rhythm of George Double (drums) and Lincoln Anderson and Kevin Willoughby sharing the bass guitar honours. A mention also of Lily Gonzalez who provides exquisite backing and duet vocals throughout. An album that I cannot recommend too highly.

“Bowers has an older touch to his songs that seem to close the gap from generation to generation”. College News U.S.A. – Music contest winner. 11/10/2010.

In July 2010 Kete finished recording his first album “ROAD” and is now planning to promote his album in 2011. Already he has had excellent reviews from radio stations across the world, from music journalists and his fast growing fan base on Myspace, Facebook and Jango Radio.
Kete has accomplished a great deal considering he wrote his first song in October 2007!

“It’s very refreshing to hear that country music is made all over the world. The most surprising aspect about this is that a lot of international country artists are more authentic than the ones here at home. Kete Bowers is one of these artists”. Written by Todd - Pure Country Music.com USA. 02/05/2010.


‘The lyrics are personal stories, which he forces the listener to reflect on his or her own life. The CD "Road" offers solid songwriter music for the connoisseur. Extremely fragile and heartbreaking songs, sometimes worn by a beautiful acoustic guitar. It provides a pure and honest album with songs of high quality’. Written by John Shoemaker – Alt Country Forum. Holland. 16/07/2010.

Kete will be visiting Nashville in May 2011, meeting with various music industry people who have expressed an interest to work with him, and there are radio interviews planned to promote his first album “Road.”

Hello Kete!

I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London, now living in The Netherlands. I would love the chance to be back in the UK performing my contemporary folk style songs either solo or with other band members at a number of house concerts.

In 2014 I released my debut studio album ‘INSIDE OUT’ which is a collection of 'feel good' songs you’ll want to hear time and time again:

.. and here is a video link to 'Amy' taken from my earlier EP 'Pieces of the Puzzle', which tells the story of life long friendship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OInbbsv9CY 


I hope you enjoy listening and I look forward to hearing from you about all the possibilities. 

Best wishes,

Joanna

Billy Kemp seeking UK House Concert Dates for May 2019

Hey UK Friends, Billy Kemp here. I am planning a new tour of the UK for May of 2019. I had a great tour in October and November 2017.  For those of you that don't know me,  I’ve been playing guitar for forty-five years and also play the banjo, bass, harmonica, piano and anything you can get a sound out of. I live near Nashville, Tennessee where I have hung my hat infrequently, since I spend so much of my time on the road. I average five or six tours annually, which take me all over the United…See More

Notes from my Acoustic/Folk kitchen table part 1...

I'm sat at my kitchen table in the Wilds of Winchester it's 5.30 am and the dawn chorus has just begun outside my window...This time of morning is perfect for creativity, songwriting and peace. Knowing that people are tucked up in their beds dreaming dreams and all you can hear outside the occasional call of a barn owl is warming to the heart and soul.When I first moved here from Southampton I found the silence deafening, now it is comfort and solace. The countryside and woods have provided…See More
