The king of the triple entendre, Sam will draw you in with poignant songs of penetrating insinuendo, close to the bone, yet closer to the heart than you might care to admit.
“Sings hilariously explicit songs ….he is a superstar.” Evening Standard
The Lancashire Hustlers – http://uk.myspace.com/thebdis
Brent and Ian fuse folk and soul in a way that will blow your mind – I know it sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it really does.
I had a little spectacular bicycle accident last week. Many thanks to everyone who has sent get well messages; I got a fantastic card from the The Door Jam open mic crowd at The Stage Door this Sunday, many thanks xx. I’ve got a broken toe and fractured cheek bone which I have to take care of, but am generally fine but for cuts and bruises. R
