Tom Williams Live with support Molly-Anne Chinner
Thursday, 15 March, 2018 - 19:30
It’s a strange story. A folk-rock band – signed to Moshi Moshi, beloved of BBC 6 Music, support act to Adele – nearly make it in the business, but not quite. Their frontman packs it all in and turns to teaching, with no plans to make a record again. Then, in 2017, he produces the album of his career – with the help of some school children, and a group of first year students from Leeds.
Tom Williams, formerly helmsman of Tom Williams & The Boat, wrote his fifth album All Change in practice rooms across Kent, in breaks from teaching guitar and songwriting to primary and secondary school children. Lyrics came to him on the long daily drives from his home in Hastings. And the band? Music tech students, who helped him out on an artist-in-residence programme. Not that you can tell.
Molly-Anne is a young and upcoming Country musician from the United Kingdom, bringing a quaint British charm to the Americana genre.
With a soulful, Country inspired-sound fused with elements of indie and folk, Molly accompanies herself on the harmonica and acoustic guitar. Writing poetic, upbeat songs, Molly-Anne has enjoyed recent airplay of her demo track 'Young Fever' on BBC Introducing as well as coverage of her tracks ‘Glow’ and ‘Corona Del Mar’ on Country Belles, Belter Radio, Jelli Records Folk & Roots Show, Big Time Radio, Mogsedos and Ignition Country alongside a selected handful of Nashville stations.
Molly-Anne hopes to spread her catchy and joyful lust for life through her songwriting and enthusiastic performance. Taking inspiration from her travels in the USA and the endless beauty surrounding her, Molly-Anne writes beautiful, original music with a sweet Country twist. With recent success on a fan-funded campaign, 2018 has seen Molly-Anne taking to the studio with Resound Media to record and release her Debut EP. Recently playing accompanied by her excellent 'Band of Andy's' (Andy Chinner and Andy Guy on percussion and double bass) the trio are open for bookings for 2018 and guarantee a good mood and a smile for the evening.
