Against a musical backdrop that takes in the likes of Steve Earle, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, London-based singer-songwriter Guy Nottage lends a strong sense of Englishness to a particularly American soundscape. His distinctive throaty bellow has been likened to a young Van Morrison, his onstage intensity to that of Connor Oberst and his vivid lyrics are reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen -- if The Boss were to sing about the English Riviera, decaying seaside towns and the London riots, that is. A regular on the London circuit, over the years Guy has performed at venues such as The Borderline, Islington Academy, The Good Ship, Betsey Trotwood, Dirty South, and Water Rats, and has shared bills with charting acts like We Are Scientists, Alabama 3, The Beautiful Girls and Goldrush. You can catch Guy performing songs from his 2012 release Carousel across London and beyond over the coming year.
