Lovely guy, so helpful. Thanks for the equipment loan. Pitched it perfectly for the event and really made a great contribution to the success of the day. Everyone was impressed and there were a number of professional musicians in the audience!

REDDITCH band are getting set to support James Blunt when his world tour comes to Birmingham next week. Grafton Ash were invited to Blunt’s ‘The Afterlove Tour’ after singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson pulled out of the show at Arena Birmingham. Grafton Ash, made up of Sam Dimmick (bass guitar), who hails from Redditch, Dan Roberts (vocals/guitar), Dan Blake (vocals/drum) and Stephen Ashford (guitar) have already shared the stage with the Feeling, The Fratellis and Reef since forming in 2015. They have also played sold out shows at the Birmingham O2 institute and the London O2 Academy Islington.

Sticking to the Birmingham area, I got to see local band Grafton Ash at the Actress & Bishop where they were supporting Nick J.D. Hodgson. They are an electro pop/folk band with strong vocal harmonies which were flawless. The use of percussion was fantastic, and I just think they had some good tunes. Reading up on them since I have learnt that they supported James Blunt during his Birmingham show on his last tour which is amazing. They have two EPs, their latest being Existing which is what they based their set on. My favourites on the EP are Existing and Never Meant To Happen. Track, The War on their first EP Avalanche is also one I highly recommend. Must see again.
