Here's a couple of clips from you tube for you to have a listen to.

Dear Tony & Nicki,

How are you?

I am specifically looking to fill the following Dates:

May 28th
Aug 24th and 26th

However, if you find my Profile interesting, yet the Dates don't suit you. I'm sure we can work something out.

Would be thrilled to hear from you.

Kind regards,

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).

Dear Tony and Nicki:

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.

Rob Ellen will give us a hearty recommendation! 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

Tony and Nicki

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

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I'll be touring throughout the UK this October 9-23 and would love for you to review my profile in consideration for a booking!  Much obliged in advance!

Hi Tony and Nicki

I am looking for shows in very early September 2013 for USA/California-based acoustic finger-style guitar player Brian Gore (see, the 'guitar poet'.
We needs shows in early September ...
Sun  1 to Fri  6   available
Sat 7 and Sun 8 London Acoustic Guitar Show (Olympia) tbc
Brian will be in Germany doing some work with the great guitarist Lulo Reinhardt (grand-nephew of Django) in late August.  Brian is a fluent German speaker and can easily give a full concert or a workshop or masterclass entirely in German.  He could also do this in Spanish, although perhaps a little less fluently.
Brian has a good track record over here since he's also the brains behind the annual touring guitar festival called the International Guitar Night, which Stoneyport has worked for in the UK since 2007.  See  Brian got IGN going in the USA in 1995 and since 2000 it has become a major North American touring event.

You can hear some of Brian's work at

I hope to hear from you soon

I represent two US-based singer/songwriters for whom I am searching for gigs in the UK in September and October 2013.

First there is Lizanne Knott.  Here are a couple of comments about her ...
"Absolutely gorgeous music.  We've rarely had as big a reaction to any artist in recent years as the one we had for Lizanne Knott." (Bob Harris: BBC Radio 2)
"Lizanne Knott is one of an increasing number of singer-songwriters that deserve to be household names."
(Mik Gaffney - Properganda #6, Proper Records UK)

Lizanne's website is at

I toured Lizanne in the UK for the first time in September-October 2012 and she was very well received indeed.  
She has the unusual accolade of sellng at least one CD to every member of her audience at the Liverpool Philharmonic gig - I've
never heard of that happening before; most unusual.  BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris continues to be a big fan and plugs her recordings frquently.

Lizanne's tour dates are currently ...

Thu 26 Sep 13    Bury Met Arts
Fri 27 Sep 13    Liverpool
Sat 28 Sep 13    Dolgellau
Sun 29 to Tue 1   available
Tue 1 to Thu 3   available
Fri 4    Torphicen Bill Lothian
Sat 5    Cromarty, The Old Brewery
Sun 6    Kinross David Mundell
Mon 7   available    
Tue 8    Glasgow Star FC
Wed 9 to 16    available
Thu 17    Swindon AC

Lizanne will be travelling with her partner Glenn Barrett (guitar).  Would you be able to host a concert for Lizanne during this tour?

Please do tell me to send you a copy of her new CD, "Standing In The English Rain".

The second act is Jim Page from Seattle whose website is at

Jim has been writing songs for moons it seems - since the late 1960s, so he's been around a bit.

He released his first vinyl album of original music “A Shot Of The Usual,” in 1975, followed quickly by two more
before he arrived in the UK in 1977 to live and tour for the next six years.  Christy Moore popularised some of Jim's songs, most notably
"Hiroshina-Nagasaki Russian Roulette".  In 2007 Jim was included in an all star list of the “50 Most Influential Musicians In Seattle History.”
Back in the USA now for about 30 years he's had a hankering to tred the UK boards again and is touring here throughout October 2013.

Tue 1 to Fri 4  available    
Sat 5    Belper
Sun 6    London Walthamstow
Mon 7 to Thu 10  available    
Fri 11    Trowbridge (Wilts) Village Pump
Sat 12 and Sun 13  available    
Mon 14    Stirling FC
Tue 15 to Sun 20  available
Mon 21 to Sun 27   Irish dates

Would you be able to host a concert for Jim during this tour?

For more information on both these acts please do have a look in our DropBox at their promo packs ---
Lizanne's is at
Jim's is at (there are six audio tracks there.  I don't have CD's to mail out for Jim)

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey folks, hope all's well in York, great to be in touch last year.. now taking house bookings for 2011...

With warmest season's greetings...

Gavin Mart is a Microsoft Media Guide featured artist:
They say: Packing a real punch with his stunning new album 'GOLDEN', Gavin Mart returns to the fray with style... The album is a rare variety of taste, texture and tone, bringing forth the more contemporary post pop title track alongside Art Punk classic 'Baby Boomer' and the Police esq. 'Every time I see you', further explorations visit The 'Manic's' with 'Sideways in the dark' and proceed through the limitless fields of 'Walls of Stone'. This album is simply not to be missed...!

Hiya guys,
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 some time, and a set of fine songs to show it off…'

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

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
