Audlem really needs little introduction to Alex Hulme. A student at Paul McCartney's LIPA in Liverpool he has been turning heads all across his native North West and is already poised to release his next EP.
Following on the back of 'There Was A Boy', co-produced by Tom Knott (KT Tunstall, I Am Kloot) on Cityscape Records, Alex is busily preparing for the launch of the follow up EP and nationwide tour to be announced this month — and yes, Audlem Festival is on that route.
Alex Hulme's performance, for those that have yet to witness it, is one of complexity, mixing his use of unusual tunings, inspired by the likes of Nick Drake, Fionn Regan and Foy Vance — with realtime multilayered looping of guitars and vocals (it has to be seen to be believed). Alex creates immediate pop songs with catchy melodies and rich folk guitar.
This is one hard working singer — songwriter, compared to the likes of Ed Sheeran and Ben Howard. His prolific gigging over the past year has seen him support artists such as Avi Buffalo, Emmy The Great and The Travelling Band, as well as being championed by BBC Lancashire's Introducing show with Sean McGinty.
In true Reubadub promotion style, please, please do yourself a favour, treat yourself to a night out, you really will enjoy it! Tonight, from 9.00pm at the Lord Combermere.
