Where there’s a there’s a mu­si­cal way

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Uxbridge Gazette - - LEISURE -

FHERE’S a sug­ges­tion: for­get the TV, have a cup of tea and a bis­cuit, then sit back in awe and won­der­ment while ab­sorb­ing the song­writ­ing tal­ents of Alis­tair Will, whose Hayes FM de­but per­for­mance is on Tues­day Jan­uary 24 be­tween 8pm and 9pm.

Hail­ing from Great Mis­senden, in Buck­ing­hamshire, Alis­tair com­bines a myr­iad of styles in­clud­ing in­die, folk with a lit­tle bitty bit of techno-elec­tro and tack­les many a so­cial is­sue with of­ten a po­et­i­cally blunt yet soul­fully hu­man and hu­mor­ous eye.

Of­ten an in­or­ganic noise will creep into the mix, but only to en­hance and never to dom­i­nate the del­i­cate sound­scape or dis­tract the lis­tener from the com­pelling story un­fold­ing within each song.

Alis­tair is the mas­ter of the pho­to­graphic song in that each of­fer­ing has a snap­shot of a mo­ment in time or a brief trailer form an epic doc­u­men­tary.
