Introducing The Scaramouche of Sunbridgewells – Even Seagulls Swoon for The Captain of the Lost Waves

Setting sail from dockside, tales have passed from lip to cheek of The Captain of the Lost Waves  – a celebration of the renaissance, an exemplar of all things Vaudevillian, embarking on his voyage to redefine labels of artistic expression. While dropping anchor at the likes of Glastonbury Arts and Edinburgh Fringe, The Captain’s absurdly engaging live performances have mesmerised and captivated crowds. As a fluid performer, transitioning between musician and storyteller, the journey is wildly outlandish, deliciously bonkers and has witnessed expressions distort from the rigid and terrified to the joyous and amiable.

Starring in his very own folk opera, little is known about his true Earthly origins, but the man behind the persona resides in the shadow of the not-so-coastal plateau of the Peak District, and from there he has embarked extensively taking his show to audiences who are then transported aboard his mystical voyages. Delightfully inventive, undoubtedly eccentric and impossible to characterise definitively, after a brief introduction in his guise indicative of an intergalactic time detective, so begins his splendid deliverance.  all of which are encouraged to be sung along to.

The premiere for the video of ‘Uniforms’, the first single from the album Synthesis, will be held right in the heart of Bradford’s historic trading quarter in Sunbridgewells, showcasing the Edwardian charm of footage shot at the New Beehive Inn. Whether hopping aboard for the first time or looking to set sail once more, we’ve been offered a perfect opportunity to delve into the mystical otherworldly-ness of realms so often consigned to the shadows.

Woolfman and JSTEW Cook Up a Casserole of Beats!

Urban nightlife has always heralded a heartfelt sanctuary for escapism and positivity. Such is the message from new transatlantic collaboration: Woolfman and JStew who urge all to shed their burdens and ‘Listen to the Beat’.

Woolfman and JStew

The Woolfman has been lurking in the shadows of the music scene for quite some time now. Not only had he turned down an offer to join The Cure during their early days, he was also advisor to Simply Red around the time of their release of ‘Fairground’ – the group’s only Number One. From a heritage of 90’s music and industry experience, Woolfman claims his creative insight for crafting tunes has come to him ‘’in dreams’’. Perhaps he never expected in the wildest of them where and how the roots of this genuine international collaboration would stem from.

The heritage from his intercontinental counterpart may lack the grandeur, but nothing in potential, and may prove to be the missing link in turning these dreams into reality. The pair bizarrely met on a trip to Eastern Europe and US Gospel singer JStew, who is also a pastor at his local church back in San Francisco, draws inspiration from heroic titans such as Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye arriving with a vision to make wonderfully vibrant and exciting music.

‘Listen to the Beat’ is a stomper of a dance track and is nothing short of vibrant. The project itself is one that seeks to progress as a mainstream brand evolving from a club base as a collaboration between producer and artist. Add in Steve Simpson at Concrete Promotions who played the vanilla version to ‘Mr E’ and come back with 2 special remixes of the track.

From this collaboration comes a mission to inject new life into what they perceive as a colourless tapestry of music today. JStew’s personal angle is one of gospel in his heart saying: “I believe my grounding in this vibrant style of music gives shape to my current style. I sing from my heart…” Through this comes transcendence through music, born from dreams. Distinguishably, Woolfman – one of the founding members of Gang of Four, was kicked out of the band for ‘’meditating in soundcheck’’.
