BJ Cole will bring melody in many colours, and i'll sing a little. It'll be great!
Glee Club Show - Birmingham - June 5th 2015
Special guests James Hodder and The Bronze.
Our collaboration started when BJ played pedal steel on 'The Box EP' back in 2009, initially working via email and exhanging music recordings, I was struck by the way BJ's melodies illuminated and added colour to my songs. Since those remote beginnings things developed quickly, we started working in the studio together and did 3 albums in as many years. I love the sessions with BJ, he's great company, holds many fascinating music making stories and always has fresh ideas for sounds and melodies the wondorous instrument that is the pedal steel can create.
During his illustrious career, BJ has performed and recorded with Elton John, REM, T-Rex, Roger Daltrey, The Walker Brothers, Joan Armatrading, David Sylvian, Sting, Bjork, Tom Jones and Robert Plant to name a few, along with releasing an acclaimed catalogue of solo albums.
I'm really looking forward to these duo live shows with BJ. Here's some clips of us playing live together:
