Ian Prowse

contact details:

The Cheshire born singer songwriter returns to The Half Moon having been touring to promote his new album "The Best of Ian Prowse"

Merseyside hero Ian Prowse has formed two succesful bands 'Amsterdam' and 'Pele'. 'The Best of Ian Prowse'is out now and contains 8 Pele classics, 9 Amsterdam as well as duets with Elvis Costello and Christy Moore and 3 brand new tunes. The shows will reflect Ian's entire career. The band are aiming to better 2008 which saw them duet with Costello on EMI Records, storm Glastonbury and release the Arm in Arm album which ended up being voted 14th best ever album out of Liverpool by the local press, which when you consider the Beatles released 10 is some feat!

Ian's most famous hit song 'Does this train stop on Merseyside?' (previous single 'The Journey' hit number 32 in the UK charts) was John Peels second favourite tune, John would regularly be too emotional to speak on the radio after playing it. The song itself got a further lease of life as one of the centre pieces of Irish legend Christy Moore's latest album which spent 5 weeks at the top spot in his home country.


Paolo Morena

contact details:

Paolo Morena is one of the most well known and respected faces on the Essex Music scene, and has spent most of his life singing and performing, either in bands or as now, as a solo act.

When you meet Paolo, and when you see him on stage, it is obvious that he is one of those people born to perform, born to be a musician. He writes beautiful hook laden melodies, and sings them with a passion that is honest and believable. He has that gift of being able to write songs that are very personal, and yet universal at the same time. Listen to “Peace of Mind”, “Mission In Me” and “Oh Yeah’ and you feel the emotion of the lyric – and then listen to tracks like “Queen of The Party Scene” and “Saturday Night” and you hear great story telling that puts a smile on your face.

In performance, Paolo brings a whole new dimension to his songs as he uses live looping on stage – effectively becoming a one- man band. It is incredibly to watch, and marks Paolo out as a very special and unique performer.
