Tower is Closed for Now

Sorry for adding the update a bit late to the website. Tom has been updating things via Facebook and we’ve been planning what to do whilst the Tower is closed.

In accordance with the first lot of guidelines – Tom made the decision to close last week in order to keep people safe. We are working on a new platform so we can webcast gigs from home and connect them up in the spirit of the venue and allow some of you who have asked how you can support the Tower and keep it open! I’ve been working on a new site on Twitch, which is a gaming platform lately used by quite a few musicians. We want a platform that is a community where others can contribute and make and promote their own music whilst remaining connected up with the Tower. I believe this is the best platform out there for this that isn’t already completely saturated with artists.

We are thinking of you all during this unprecidented time and hoping that you all remain well. Let’s all create lots of art and meet back at the Tower when this is over. We’re thinking of each and every one of you and are looking forward to the future.

In the meantime, here’s something Tom put together. Stay safe and well all!

Devon Mayson

Devon is a singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist whose unique style is shaped by influences from the musical worlds of Country, Folk and Pop; her debut Album ‘Lie to Me’ was released in the Summer of 2016 to critical acclaim, reached #3 in the UK Country iTunes Chart and resulted in Devon being named ‘Best UK Newcomer’ at the B&G Country Music Awards.
Following the album, she embarked on a six week tour of the UK and Europe supporting Caitlin Koch.

Described by Andrew Marston, BBC Introducing, as “Beautiful songs from an artist who’s been our BBC Introducing Track of the Week on so many occasions”; Devon’s contemporary style of country has gone on to become a favorite with BBC Radio 2’s Whispering Bob Harris, resulting in her recently being invited to record a second ‘Under the Appletree’ session. “Having recorded more than 400 sessions over 4 years, to stand out from the crowd is no mean feat – but Devon certainly did that. With her sensitive songwriting and soaring vocals, she possesses a rare ability to portray difficult and controversial topics in a way that makes them accessible and personal to the listener, with a level of musicianship and control that makes her a force to reckon with.” – Miles Myerscough Harris

“British Country is on the rise, but this piece of British country music comes heavily laced with raw emotion and integrity rather than sprinkled with the pop fairy dust of more famous offerings.” – Ian Ambrose, Maverick Magazine.

Lobelia Lawson

American born Lobelia isn’t just your typical singer-songwriter. A multi-instrumentalist who worked as a studio musician for 10+ years, she has won multiple awards for her songwriting, has been featured in Billboard Magazine, and was one of the original Women of MP3.COM in the early days of the Internet.

In the UK for 10+ years now, she hosts several acclaimed songwriter nights at Tower of Song, winner o the pretigious Grassroots Venue award for 2019.

Melvin Hancox

Melvin Hancox Band

The word genius is often over used but what else could the man whose show stopping performance at Abertillary Blues Festival on his ’57 custom three pick-upped black beauty Les Paul be coined”, “Flights and notations of mystery and imagination crashed to Earth like space shrapnel” and a more to the point quote “Why isn’t this man a star?”. Just a few of the many positive media quotations Melvin Hancox has experienced of late.
 
Born to song writer and playwright Stephen and artist Lynette of late Melvin has had material played on the BBC, Rick Wakeman’s Planet Rock Show and live interviews and sessions on mainstream national radio along with writing and television work.
