It is very difficult to put Gordon’s music into any kind of a category, influenced as it is by the rock guitar of Hank Marvin and Pete Townshend, the folk guitar of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn and the classical guitar of Julian Bream and John Williams.
He has released over 25 albums and worked with an array of musicians including Rick Wakeman, Cliff Richard and Brian May. He has had several chart hits and his single “Fear of the Dark” was the first 12-inch colour picture disc to be released in the UK. In 1996, he wrote some of the music and performed alongside Cliff Richard in the West End musical Heathcliff.
Tsarzi is a singer-songwriter from Sheffield. Blending influences from Bach to Bowie, she spins playful piano-based oddities with a twist of dark humour and a writer’s eye for quotidian detail. She sings songs of ornaments and decaying seaside towns, with a uniquely unpredictable style that has garnered comparisons to artists as diverse as Amanda Palmer, Kate Bush, and Benjamine Clementine.
In 2017 she won the South Yorkshire Filmmakers’ Network 2Weeks2MakeIt Grand Jury award for her music video Ornaments, a Warholesque tale of ceramic violence.
Her debut album, Last Decade of Love, is out now.
