Saturday 31st July – Dan Whitehouse & Chris Cleverley

 

Across five solo albums Dan Whitehouse has gained a reputation as “a fine songwriter, a unique vocal talent and a talented multi-instrumentalist/performer” (Maverick).  Dan brings songs from his latest release, the double album Dreamland/Tomorrow which was released on Reveal Records in 2020. A contrasting pair of albums, ‘Dreamland’ was produced by Reveal Records MD Tom Rose and is a darker, more intense record created with an experimental approach. In contrast, ‘Tomorrow’ captures Dan’s live essence, raw and in the moment, and was recorded with Jon Kelly (Kate Bush, Prefab Sprout) in London and produced by Boo Hewerdine

“Nothing short of beautiful ★★★★ ” RnR Magazine

“Wonderful production and writing” Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music

“Subtle and delicate melodies” The Sunday Times

 


Chris was born under a solstice moon, in an aura of honeysuckle mysticism. With a visceral lyrical style, inspired by the American greats Elliott Smith & Sufjan Stevens, his songwriting explores the place of folk music within the 21st Century emotional landscape.

Shining an honest light on diverse, arresting themes from deteriorating anxious minds to damaging gender constructs, it is no wonder Folk Radio UK have called him “One of the most vital voices of his folk generation.”  As a student of Nic Jones and John Renbourn records, his blistering yet delicate guitar technique is infused with a hazy, dreamlike essence of the 60s Folk Revival.

Genuinely important” -RnR ★★★★

“Impressive” – The Telegraph

“Haunting” – The Sunday Times
