About Me
....................................................................................................................................

I'm a musician, though not touring at the moment. I'm here more to support the development of a house concert network in the UK.

While in the USA last year, I hooked up with the house concert circuit in the western States and met lots of great people in the folk/acoustic community. I'd really like to see something similar develop in this country. And this looks like a great place to start.

Incidentally, my band 'Stryngs' is recently disbanded, but we have a few copies of our albums still for sale. (CD Baby; search for Stryngs) I've posted some of our music and three videos here for anyone who's interested.

HOUSE CONCERTS : When did you last have live music in your home?

If you’re lucky enough to have a friend who is a talented musician play a song or two for you in your living room, you'll know how thrilling it is to catch every tiny nuance of a song performed just for you. Most of us aren't so lucky but … we can change that!


HOUSE CONCERTS ARE A 'WIN-WIN-WIN' SITUATION!
Hosts have talented artists playing right in their living rooms, and get to treat their friends and neighbours to a unique musical experience.

Guests appreciate a fun, rewarding evening, and directly support independent artists.

Artists relish the opportunity to play in a close and friendly environment, rather than noisy bars where their more subtle songs are often completely lost. And they love a chance to share stories about their music to a receptive audience.


SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? FIND OUT ABOUT HOUSE CONCERTS NEAR YOU AND GET INVITED. OR START HOSTING YOURSELF! BE A PART OF THE NEW MUSICAL COMMUNITY!

"With Niños Del Sol it seems The Division Men have managed to release an full length that sits somewhere between Mark Lanegan era Queens Of The Stone Age, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash‘s American series of albums, to me Niños Del Sol sounds like an album crafted for late nights that run into early mornings where the bourbon has been poured freely and the air is heavy with smoke."

We're booking Europe Dates for next year from August / September / October 2019.

Hello Martin!

I'm Joanna Weston, an English singer-songwriter originally from London (lived in Guildford for almost 10 years) before heading to The Netherlands, which is where I'm now based. 

I would love the chance to come back to the UK in 2016 and play some intimate house concerts and wonder if you are still hosting? 

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: 

https://joannaweston.bandcamp.com/album/inside-out


.. 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 


Enjoy listening and I look forward to hearing from you about all the possibilities - and if you need any more information, just let me know! 

Best wishes,

Joanna

Martin

Greetings from Canada! My new cd, Break These Chains has received a 4 star review in this month's Maverick Magazine and is being released to the UK/Europe through Proper Distribution.

We are securing dates for an acoustic tour in May/June and wondered if you would be interested in hosting us for a house concert?

Please visit my website at www.tiamcgraff.com

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi Martin,

I was wondering if I could get a moment if your time to listen to something?
It's the title track from Terry Emm's new album. I am booking shows for Terry in 2014 and thought he might suit the music events you put on.
 
Terry's music has recently had airplay from legendary DJ Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Bob described Terry's music as 'excellent, excellent music' and has had him in for a live session. BBC 6 Music DJs Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson have also spun his tracks regularly alongside many regional stations. Terry has recently shared the stage with the likes of; Amy Wadge, Richard Walters, Danny & The Champs, Jackie Leven, Judith Owen, Red Dirt Skinners and many others.
MOJO magazine have described his music as 'pastoral, romantic and lit musically by summer rays…no routine singer- songwriter offering but some-thing totally engaging in melody and lyric' in a 4 star review.
It'd be interesting to see what you think to his music and great if you could consider him for a show.
Thanks very much,
Theo Hall

Hiya Martin,
Hope you are well. I am new to this network so trying to make some friends! I am interested in doing house concerts so if you are looking to put something on do give me a shout.
Esther x

‘’’The Sunday Express (five stars) ***** It’s clear from the title track that you are listening to something special with O’Connor’s second solo album… ’’

The Herald (four stars) **** ''O’Connor has one of the best voices heard in Scotland in some time, and a set of fine songs to show it off…''

The List (four stars) **** ''soulful stripped down and spine tingling. ’’

Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio 2) ''Fresh, self-assured and original - Esther's music just makes you happy to be alive. What a great talent.'

Hi,

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:

Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.

Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!

We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.

Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.

Best wishes & have a great weekend.

Roosevelt Bandwagon
