15 October 2021 @ 7:30 pm

£7 – £14
“Revolution Starts At Home” Album Launch Show
…with special guest Dan Whitehouse
Long For The Coast
Revolution Starts at Home is a collection of songs inspired by the human experience, spiritual exploration and the need we all share for authentic connection. The album’s introspective narrative was ignited by the notion that if you want to change the world, you’ve got to start with yourself. The songs and music will chime with fans of Ben Howard, The Dead Tongues, This Is The Kit, Pinegrove and Sufjan Stevens.
They’ll be appearing here as a full band with Simon Walker on Bass & Cello, and Jake Spencer on Drums.

Special Guest: Dan Whitehouse
Dan Whitehouse is an acclaimed and award-winning English songwriter, composer and spoken word artist. Across five solo albums he has gained a reputation as “a fine songwriter, a unique vocal talent and a talented multi-instrumentalist/performer” (MAVERICK).
Dan is showcasing his double album Dreamland/Tomorrow, released on Reveal Records in 2020 which features collaborations with John Elliot (The Little Unsaid), Eric Lane (Joan as Police Woman), minimalist composer Richard J. Birkin, and BBC Jazz Award winning Saxophonist Xhosa Cole.
The son of a Wolverhampton community radio pioneer, the coming together of community through music has always been important to Dan, and is something he draws upon both in his own work, and as a songwriting tutor, one-to-one mentor and workshop leader.
