Kicking off his brand new tour which includes a date at Chalk in Brighton Feb 23rd, the folk-favourite is showing off his optimistic new album “Survival of the Friendliest”!
Touring with a band, which includes Jack Flanagan (of Mystery Jets) and Kitty Liv (of Kitty, Daisy and Lewis), this is a second tranche of shows for ‘Beans’, in support of his latest new material and will showcase upbeat songs from the album.
An impressive release, his new work features a whole host of friends & musicians, from spoken-word artist Dizraeli and acclaimed author Nick Hayes (on banjo), through to the multi-talented gospel singer Sarah Telman (on backing vocals and strings), Rosie Bristow of Holy Moly & The Crackers (on accordion), Adriano Rossetti-Bonell (on saxophone) and Graham Godfrey (on drums) – as well as contributions throughout from Mystery Jets’ Blaine Harrison and Jack Flanagan.
It seems like ‘Help from his friends’ really is the order of the day too, with “Survival of the Friendliest”, with the cover art for the album having been produced by London based painter Georgie Mason; and the videos coming from wildlife photographer and old school-friend Curt Walsh!
“I can’t bloody wait for this run of dates” said an enthusiastic Beans speaking of the tour; “…some of my all-time favourite venues are on that list. I’ll be joined on stage by the legends Jack Flanagan (Mystery Jets) and Kitty Liv (Kitty, Dasiy and Lewis) in the new musical ensemble. Singing songs, making friends, telling stories and offering hope and light relief from this bizarre world. See you out there.”
@ Chalk Feb 23rd.
