This week I visited the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith
(great venue), the guest of Lisbee Stainton (see gig this summer & appearing here Sat. 7th)
at a special show hosted by
DJ Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6, Fresh on the net.
Celebrating the bands and musicians he has showcased over two years,
he selected just a handful, 30-40, the most promising of the very best of 3000
to play in front of an invited audience.
Lisbee and her band (Dee and Simon) were Tom singled out for particular praise;
she is that good and you will hear much,
much more of this girl in the future. I was delighted to be there, I really loved the venue,
as much as to tell you with confidence, the Drawingroom standard is every bit as high
….and there’s more of it on the way
