ROLE AT BRIGHTON NOISE:
Writer, folk person
FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT LIVING IN BRIGHTON:
The mixture of Regency, Victorian and modernist architecture. Also I like it when the sea mist rolls in and makes the street lights glow. And okay, yes, the many gigs and all the lovely people I’ve met.
FAVOURITE LOCAL VENUE:
I like being inside the Dome, but I have a lot of good Komedia memories so I’ll go for that one.
FIRST EVER GIG:
James at the Exeter University Great Hall.
BEST RECENT GIG:
Chris Wood & Dizraeli doing a folk-rap crossover thing. Which sounds like a recipe for disaster, but was in fact completely brilliant.
