KENT NIELSEN (DK) – Ukulele Folk Punk / Singer/Songwriter!
„Lyrics like a punch in the gut, painfully reminding you of your own wounds“. (Christian Elsrodt / Folker! Magazine)
Kent Nielsen is Danish but living in Lübeck (North Germany). He’s got a history as an author, percussionist, shoe shop clerk, record label guy, mail order honcho, night porter and ukulele player a. o. But there’s one thing he’s been doing for ages – and that’s singing. He just completed an old project – his first „solo album“. Roughly half of the roots rock colored Songs were written together with Stefan Kletetzka (DEEP RIVER), some are brand new while a couple Dates back to Kent and Stefan’s time in ONE BAR TOWN. Four covers were added, one by JOHN HARTFORD and another three originally written by GLEN CAMPBELL, EDDIE & THE HOT RODS and C.V. JØRGENSEN featuring Kent solo on the ukulele. Three more songs, drenched in Mod and 60s sounds, were written together with Helge Reich (JAM TODAY). The album also includes guest appearances from George Whitfield (FIDDLEBOX, ex-PRESSGANG) and Martin Wenk (CALEXICO, NADA SURF, JUDITH HOLOFERNES).
“I've always been fortunate to work with some extremely gifted songwriting partners. Hopefully we‘ve managed an album as diverse and varied as I prefer them.” (Kent Nielsen)
I See Hawks In L.A. are releasing two records in May: our own and an EP collaboration with the Good Intentions which turned out quite well. We plan on touring UK/Ireland this summer.
I know it's a bit of short notice for you (our agent Bob Butler of Grapevine agency has sadly passed away), but if you have a slot for us we'd love to play one of your concerts. Our tour window is mid-July through mid-August, though we could head over earlier if that's when most of the shows are happening.
We've done 3 or 4 tours of UK/Ireland, have been in the Euro Americana chart top ten 3 times, and have great representation for press/radio in Geraint of G Promo PR. He got us great press and BBC appearances last time and will be invaluable in promoting live shows. I'll be happy to send you our bio with listening links, and sneak preview of our forthcoming CDs. thanks, hope you are great, Paul firstname.lastname@example.org www.iseehawks.com
My name is Matt Wadsworth and I play the lute all over the world. I've done about 20 house concerts over the last few years, and find that it is the best environment to experience the magic and intimacy of the lute. It is also how people would have heard the instrument in the 17th and 18th centuries.
At many of the house concert venues I play, almost nobody has ever been to a lute concert before. They absolutely love it, and get to experience something new as well.
You can hear/watch some of my live performances here:
The duo I perform with, Stray Local based in North Carolina, USA, will be going on their second European tour in the Summer of 2018 and we would love to set up house concerts in the U.K. through the month of June. We'd love to be considered for one of the concerts you host.
Last summer we traveled across France and Germany playing festivals and house concerts and would like to explore the U.K. and share our music there next summer. We have played countless house shows across the USA; it is our favorite way to perform because of the intimate atmosphere and personal connection you make with those attending. We perform original music in an americana/folk style with a few traditional appalachian tunes as well. Our instrumentation is guitar, banjo, mandolin, and vocal harmonies. We look forward to going on another adventure and sharing our music along the way!
