Gigs postponed, but not for long..


Snow forced the postponement of my final two shows in Reading and Fareham, but I'm delighted to announce these have now been rescheduled: Fareham on Thursday May 10th, and Reading on Friday May 11th.

Just to say, I had a wonderful time on my first solo Completely Out Of Character tour, met some fantastic people, and the feedback has been amazing; even about my ukelele playing! Indeed, there are now plans to add some further dates in November. On top of this, I have just agreed to perform a streamlined version of the show at the Edinburgh Fringe In August - details to follow.

Thanks to everyone who came to the first lot of gigs. Graham x

6 Music interview and Radio 4 debut for 'Mark Rylance Was My Lodger'..


Being Completely out of Character for a few weeks now, I can definitely say I'm not in several minds about it. That's to say - I'm having a wonderful time being myself! It seems like the audiences are enjoying it too. With the tour now more than half way through, here are links to a couple of recent radio appearances - an interview with Shaun Keaveney on 6 Music (2:07:53 in) and me performing Mark Rylance Was My Lodger on Loose Ends.

We.. or rather 'I' hope you like them!


Weird Town is released!

We couldn’t hold it back any longer, and at 1 minute past midnight on January 26th 2018, my first solo LP for 32 years was unleashed on the unsuspecting world! 13 tracks of glorious jangly folk pop to brighten up the gloomy Winter months. It’s out there, it’s available. Buy it now!!! (I do hope you like it...).

Go to my shop at to listen to the whole thing and get yourself a copy. x

Preorder my new album!


Preorder my new LP Weird Town and you'll get a signed photo free! You can also listen to two tracks for free on bandcamp - The Man Who Sits in a Chair and Diary of a Skinbird. Both feature the gorgeous violin playing of the Unthanks' Niopha Keegan.

All the songs are mine except one that I really wish I had written (and maybe one day I would have done!), but urban poet Mik Artistik thought of it first. It's so good that I just had to record it. It's called Car That Makes a Bus Sound, and it's one of the 13 tracks that go to make Weird Town. Preorder now for delivery as soon as it's released on January 26th!

Weird way of recording Weird Town


You can finally enjoy a sneak preview of a track from my new LP, Weird Town. THE MAN WHO SITS IN A CHAIR stars the brilliant Niopha Keegan - violinist from The Unthanks - and the unmistakable guitar playing of folk legend Chris Wood. Chris was on tour at the time and I was in the studio, so we decided the only solution was for him to record into his mobile phone before emailing me the guitar part. It sounds great but if you listen carefully I’m sure you can just hear the sound of someone washing up in the background! Weird Town will be released on January 26th but you will be able to preorder it here shortly.

Cheers, Graham. x

I'm going on tour..


I've never played Glastonbury (I've never been asked, Michael!) but last summer I had the massive pleasure of playing a solo acoustic set at Glastonwick - the legendary real ale festival run by Attila the Stockbroker. I loved it, and remembered that I'd also enjoyed a similar experience the previous year at punk festival Rebellion in Blackpool. And the audience weren't throwing things at me but making encouraging noises. It was perhaps time to do a tour and reveal to the world the man behind John Shuttleworth and Jilted John. So now it's happening - nineteen gigs around England with me and a harmonium (and a ukulele!) and I do hope you'll come along. Not all the dates are yet on sale but most are and the rest soon will be. See you there!
