Essex born folk songwriter ‘Beans on Toast’ is an extremely uniqueperformer. Twisting an age-old genre with a D.I.Y. approach andcontemporary concerns has earned him the title of a cult figure whotells it like it is. A festival favourite (he’s played Glastonburyevery year since 2007) and a prolific writer and performer. He’swritten and recorded 13 albums and he’s played every bar, club, venue,pub, festival, party and honky-tonk you can think of.
He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and aneternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues.Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Lovesongs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with noholds barred honesty and quick wit.
He’s constantly writing, recording and releasing music and puts out anew album each year on 1st December, which happens to be his birthday.Each album recorded with a different producer and musicians, over theyears he’s worked with the likes of Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons), FrankTurner and Kitty and Lewis Durham (Kitty, Daisy & Lewis)
He tours constantly and has gigged and played festivals all over theworld. The Beans on Toast live show is an odd and unpredictableexperience. A singer, songwriter and storyteller his self-deprecatingquality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrierbetween musician and audience, creating a sense of equality.
