So Tim Gleeson has come back from the studio with a new release, eh? I’m worried…because I know this kind of guy: he steals hearts. No, not at cards: your sweetie. He’s a Pied Piper of sorts; that’s the harmonica he toots instead of a flute. And he plays the “Sensitive Guy” card with an acoustic guitar in his hand. This is the great-great-great…grandson of a troubadour in Ye Olde Days who would craft a love song wrapped in a sunny day with a smile on his face—and the fair maidens of the town… Continue

I broke up my Mexico tour. There was a lack of organization and terrible conditions. Now I'm back home and concentrate on new things.
All the best to you,

I've been a bit slow getting this out but wanted everyone to know how great the Highland Tour went this summer. First of all, let me thank Mr. Rob Ellen (the man behind the tour) for his friendship and hard work. I've had the pleasure of knowing Rob since about 2005 when my first cd "Fabletown" came out. He has handled all of my PR work throughout the UK, Europe etc since then, including my second cd "Rarely Fall" in 2008. Thanks again Rob!
Ok now the tour. I hit… Continue

I don't usually do alot of blogging, but I thought in this case, I needed to explain the recent sparseness of my calender. Sparse is probably not the correct word. Barren would most likely be a better choice.
About six months ago, I started having some pain in my fingers, when I played guitar, or practiced my guitar playing. Before long the pain became excruciating, and my fingers began to turn red and swell. The symptoms were worse, anytime I picked up ice to put in my glass, or when I… Continue

Just joined this fabulous website thanks to our friend Mike. It's so great to see House Concerts becoming more popular in the UK and Tinderbox would love to be a part of that.
We have a big House Concert Tour in the states in May 2010 but it would be great to arrange something similar closer to home.
We are currently booking for 2010

So many have asked about the weekend held over Labor Day at the Incubator
campus just outside Eugene, Oregon. I thought I would post a link so you could see and take a listen to the seven artists in action. The link has rough cuts without edits, and an MP3 of the final cut. We're into 'hatching' good stuff and these artists stepped it up and birthed a song in a couple of days! Check 'em out: Paul Baker,… Continue

It has been a crazy summer and one of my favorite and most successful musical summers yet. Between performing at Telluride (where I had the opportunity to perform an hour long set on the songwriter stage, a set on the main stage and then later with Sam Bush!), my first festival headline at Bluegrass on the Comstock in Virginia City, NV (and all those ghosts!), NWSS (where I got to perform with the McCoury brothers!), Yarmony Festival (performing with bluegrass folks from across the country… Continue

Personal, thoughtful and humorous album full of emotion sung so delicately and handsomely which brings a tear or two to the eyes

With news that there is an award for the best publicity stunt
at the Edinburgh Fringe and realising that this award shows just how hard performers are trying in order to get their show noticed, I decided to make a list of things I have learned from my first show at the Edinburgh Fringe.
As it was my first show I was unaware of the costs… Continue

On wednesday august 12 we had songwriter Adam Klein in the house for a his performance. Adam flew in straight from Uganda, where he was working with a club of students in a project. So you can inmagine that he was tired. But we gave him some rest & relax moments and a nice warm shower did the rest. At showtime Adam was full of energy and gave us a really nice show. His typical voicesound was very… Continue
