Henry Priestman

I love the wonderful atmosphere of this short clip of a somewhat ramshackle version of Forgotten Town, filmed in 2015 at Liverpool's now deceased (and much-missed) Lantern Theatre, where we were joined by John Reilly (vox/drum) and Lewis Nitikman (keys).
John and Lewis will be doing a double header gig with us at Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room on Oct 26th, a set each, then we'll come together at the end to revisit some old favourites.

Henry Priestman

Doing an "Audience With"-type event on Thurs Sept 5th in Chester, so anyone who enjoyed the drivel I spoke on Janice Long's show on Monday, come for a longer version to Chester's Storyhouse where I'll be interviewed by Paul Skillen and joined on songs by Les Glover & Sarah Wright.
Paul and I checked out the Storyhouse on Monday, wonderful venue, not been before. He'll be interviewing me first, then after the break will be doing the same with Tommy Scott from Space.

Album cover for The Last mad Surge of Youth by Henry Priestman

“…compares favourably to Ray Davies. These are heart-warming self-assured songs from a man confidently declaring that he’s not done yet”

8/10

Uncut Magazine

“Clever crafted songwriting…full of proper tunes & grown-up words…a clever, wily,  literate writer”

****

R2 Magazine

“A lovingly crafted album… his fourth act might be his best”

****

Classic Pop Magazine

It’s all bound by Priestman’s songwriterly craft: some things age cannot whither”
