Stephen Fretwell hits the road in December 2011 - tickets available now/Friday 14th October
You may not think that you know the music of the Manchester-based singer-songwriter Stephen Fretwell, but you do. For a start, his song 'Run' is known to millions as the theme tune to the award-winning BBC sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'.
But that's no excuse, you ought to know more. Fretwell has spent the best part of the last ten years penning thoughtful, husky, atmospheric acoustic missives about love, loss and devotion.
His first album, 2002's '8 Songs', recorded after he'd relocated from Lincolnshire to Salford, earned him slots supporting some big names including Travis, Elbow, Athlete, Keane and KT Tunstall. His next record, 'Magpie', which included 'Run' and another stand out track, the gorgeous 'Emily', was released in late 2004 and heralded another short, sharp, successful chapter.
'Run' was picked up for 'Gavin & Stacey', and can still be heard daily on Dave/Gold etc, and, in 2005, he also supported Oasis in Dublin and contributed to a Jeff Buckley tribute album. Later, his face, at least, would become familiar as the bass player on tour with the Last Shadow Puppets, Alex Turner's side project on days off from the Arctic Monkeys.
So you should know all about Stephen Fretwell. That you don't is your fault, not his. But there's still time.
Stephen Fretwell begins his short tour at The Night and Day Cafe in Manchester on 2nd December, followed by gigs in Leeds, Liverpool, London (Bush Hall), Winchester and Cardiff, before the final date announced so far in Bristol on 16th December.
We have tickets available now for the Liverpool and Cardiff shows, priced £10.
We will have tickets for the remaining gigs when they go on sale at 9AM on Friday 14th October, priced £15 for London and from £10 for all other venues.
