What to expect- Reflective, lyric-driven folk, inspired by the post-industrial North of England.
“In his solo work, Robbie Thompson takes several steps back from the Buffalo Skinners’ full-bodied, rumbling storytelling and instead uses songs to pick out moments, giving them room to breathe… Thompson's vocals are striking, a very old voice bristling with fresh emotion."

James Ewan Tait
What to expect- Experimental songwriter noted for his unmistakable croon, and deeply personal delivery.
“Like all the best vocalists, Tait allows his voice to become strained and cracked with emotion as he reaches the highs and lows of expression... proving beyond doubt that Tait can master the whole spectrum of honest emotion.”
– Now Then Magazine
“This remarkable songwriter is producing some uniquely enjoyable music.”
- Pink Wafer
Last autumn Tait’s debut EP, recorded with his producer and a selection of local musicians, was released on Tait’s own nascent Pigeon Hands label.
