This event takes place at Tunbridge Wells Forum, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
It’s a strange story. A folk-rock band – signed to Moshi Moshi, beloved of BBC 6 Music, support act to Adele – nearly make it in the business, but not quite. Their frontman packs it all in and turns to teaching, with no plans to make a record again. Then, in 2017, he produces the album of his career – with the help of some school children, and a group of first year students from Leeds.
Tom Williams, formerly helmsman of Tom Williams & The Boat, wrote his fifth album All Change in practice rooms across Kent, in breaks from teaching guitar and songwriting to primary and secondary school children. Lyrics came to him on the long daily drives from his home in Hastings. And the band? Music tech students, who helped him out on an artist-in-residence programme. Not that you can tell.

Kent and London band Story Books nestle somewhere in the alternative, with dark, moody songs filled with strong guitar riffs.

The Standard Lamps' music can be described as a mixture of melodic tunes with a raw blues edge.
