Description

Friday the 7th of July at 3rd Space, Llandudno.

Chris Helme (The Seahorses) (The Yards)

With Support from singer/songwriter Courteous Thief.

Marking the release of his new EP “Tribal” on CEG Records.

Chris Helme, who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’ released his debut solo album on the 27th of August 2012. Although rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics Love Is The Law and Blinded By The Sun - songs that evoked everything the 90’s stood for, from the opening track of The Rookery, the man instantly appeared cut from an entirely different cloth.

Helme’s is an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it was The Rookery’s knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brought each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme’s keen ear for arranging,combined with his beguiling voice, and the brooding string passages resonate even more deeply.


“Echoing the fragility of Gram Parsons, while flirting with the rustic side of Neil Young.” UNCUT


“Dreamy but driven indie folk. Enhanced by lavishly layered productions and a deftly deployed string quartet.” Q MAGAZINE“


"A memorable collection of songs that should establish Helme in his own right and give him the recognition he deserves.” MOJO


Singer/songwriter COURTEOUS THIEF has been described as both contemporary new folk and acoustic indie pop.

Releasing the first album Symphony to widespread acclaim in 2011 saw Courteous Thief being championed By BBC Radio Wales with past singles achieving the coveted BBC Radio Wales Single Of The Week accolade as well as live sessions and interviews.

Singles from the second album “Beyond These Walls” released in July 2016 also reached the same heights as previous releases, with the track “Once Burnt” also featuring on the BBC Introducing in Wales with Bethan Elfyn.

A regular on the live circuit has seen Courteous Thief supporting bands and artists such as Turin Brakes, Chris Helm, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Mark Morris (The Bluetones) and Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) as well as festival appearances with performances at some of the UK's top festivals including Glass Butter Beach Festival, Festival No 6, Gorjys Secrets Festival, featuring as the Face Of February on Music Hour UK and features by Fresh On The Net.

The release of his new single “Rest My Bones” on the 16th of October has seen it gain local, national and international airplay in Europe and will form part of a the new Tribal E.P out Jully 2017.


"Ice & Stone was hugely popular on the listening post this weekend, and is a wonderful exercise in how to craft beautifully melodic indie acoustic pop." Fresh On The Net


"Immediately memorable, full of energy, animated; Once Burnt is just truly great acoustic pop." From The Margins
