Saturday November 16th: Open stage with David Lawrence
CB2, Norfolk St Cambridge
On Saturday November 16th we will host our next open stage evening upstairs in the library at CB2. Our friend David Lawrence will be launching his new CD. David writes about it: 'I’m delighted to be launching my second short album, Piece of Mind, after perhaps the longest ever gap since a first album, which I put out back in 2001! I’ve kept writing throughout, and performing solo acoustic renditions, but I wanted to finally get some of my best songs recorded properly. The hope is to get some of these songs to a wider audience, and perhaps even picked up by other performers. These are acoustic songs at heart, and a couple are recorded that way, but there are much more elaborate arrangements on there as I've worked hard to get them down exactly as they've formed in my head. Influences people have recognized in the arrangements are Nick Drake, Crowded House, Ben Folds and Jeff Buckley. It was mostly recorded with Bugs at Half Ton Studios in Milton, plus a little at home. I also roped in the support of friends: David Youngs, who plays drums on some tracks, and Danny Godfrey on bass. I've even got all three of my children it, so I'm pretty proud of what I've created over all these years.'
