Shaun T Hunter has announced exciting plans for 2008, with the formation of his band Shaun T Hunter and The Quiet Rebellion. The band consists of Shaun on Guitar and vocals plus, Jay Stannard on Cajon, Lee Boyes on Bass, Ben Lawrence on Viola & Liz Nicholas on Flute & vocals. The full band gives Shaun’s arrangements a vibrancy and passion, which allows his own vocals and lyrics, the opportunity to give a feeling and depth that leaves his supposed peers in awe.

Gigs already arranged are;

SUNDAY 3rd FEB The Duck and Drake, Leeds
SATURDAY 1st MARCH The Puzzle Hall Inn, Sowerby Bridge
SATURDAY 5th APRIL The Abbey Inn, Leeds

Hopefully 2008 will see this colossus of a song-writer, receive the accolades and success he very richly deserves.

As a performer, Paul Middleton is unique, there can be very few, if any, performers who give as much effort to each and every gig. Every musical pore and sinew in Paul's body, is exhausted throughout each song, his body contorts as every word, painful or passionate is delivered with so much feeling and profoundness. His five-piece band, including, fiddle, banjo and pedal steel guitar, give an unsurpassed musical depth which allows Paul to flow in his own inimitable style. With self-penned songs such as the thought-provoking and sometimes harrowing song"Corridors" to the classic song of relationships "Jealousy" and the humorous "Paint My House" plus the seen to be believed covers of "Ticket To Ride" and "Delilah" Paul gives the audience value for money. The moment Paul starts playing his guitar and then frequently asks "what's all that about then?" you realise you are in for a memorable and remarkable night.

The new CD "Angst" available now.
