Event Details

GAVIN OSBORN
With five acclaimed studio albums under his belt, singer-songwriter Gavin Osborn should be swimming in a sea of royalties and bathing in a bathtub of banknotes. But who needs that, right guys? He would rather tour the UK in his Zafira, playing small acoustic gigs in intimate rooms to a menagerie of misfits. That's the big time right there.

Regularly touring the UK and Europe, he's also a festival favourite (Latitude, Green Man, End of the Road) and known for his storytelling shows with comedian Daniel Kitson (Stories For The Starlit Sky). Gavin is lucky enough to have worked with the likes of folk singer Grace Petrie, comedian Josie Long and poet Molly Naylor. He also supported Belle And Sebastian on their UK tour in 2010.

Featuring life-affirming, funny, personal and political songs, including some from his new record, 'Echo Bridge', which The Observer called “One of 2017’s most relatable releases and a comfort blanket for post-Brexit alienation”.

'Funny and touching' - Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times.

"Frustrated, angry, bewildered and aware of the utter ridiculousness of a world that has moved past your point of understanding" - The Guardian

'In true Loudon Wainwright spirit, he sings about serious things without taking himself too seriously. Splendidly sad tales of unrequited love and some proper protest music. Genuinely brilliant' - eFestivals

CHRIS TAVENER
Chris Tavener is the witty, satirical songwriter saying things that everybody thinks, but nobody says. Rock ‘n’ roll infused with comedy. Folk dipped in satire.
It’s like Peep Show set to music! If Jimmy Carr played guitar...he would be Chris Tavener.
“Comedic genius” - Pop Culture Pipebomb

Chris has been known to play as many as 350 gigs a year, making him one of the most hard-working singer-songwriters in the UK. He’s had endorsements from Carl Barat of The Libertines, Will Ferrell’s ‘Funny Or Die’, Paddy McGuinness, Jamie Lawson and Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music. Steve has played Chris’ tracks four times on national radio.

Originally from Northwich in Cheshire, Chris began writing and producing demo albums annually from age 17. He writes storytelling songs about the ironic comedy in everything from drunken romance, celebrity worship, football hooligans and small town problems.In the past year, Chris has performed at Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape, Latitude Festival and The Edinburgh Fringe to name but a few.

In 2017, he recorded his first live album in two back-to-back, sold out shows at Manchester’s Three Minute Theatre. He followed that up with a national tour, which included dates supporting the likes of Peep Show’s Super Hans at Manchester Academy. His new album and DVD are set for release in early 2018.

Testimonials:
"An interesting lad with an elastic turn of phrase" - Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music
"Nice set. Kinks-y vibes" - Carl Barat, The Libertines
"Brilliant!" - Jamie Lawson

Our Director Paul Bickmore (better known as Bik) spends a lot of his time tracking down a varied, interesting range of performances for us to host here at The Art House.

A seasoned musician himself (as well as being the man who does the sound engineering on the night - something he does extremely well), Bik hand-selects the very best acts to showcase in our gallery space - his criteria?  



Travel information:-

We are a city centre venue and parking can be in short supply.  If you are driving, please make sure you leave plenty of time to find a space click here for a map of where the nearest parking spaces can be found.

We recommend Kings Park Road car park:
We are about 10 minutes walk from Southampton City Centre train station (head up the hill toward the Guildhall clock tower) and on the route for most city centre buses (the Unilink U1 stops virtually outside.)

 Accessibility info:-

Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)

Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comformatable seating is provided.  We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry.
