Pure Acoustica

Ok, what is Pure Acoustica?

Simply it's a collection of artists, musicians, poets, comedians etc. who perform without the use of mics, amps or a PA. 

I have played a couple of pure acoustic gigs recently and they have been some of my favourite.  The freedom and control is  a powerful feeling.  There is no worry that the sound engineer will get the balance wrong, and the audience response is amazing.  They don't have to shout over a loud PA and they actually pay attention to what you are doing. 

You can read about these gigs here and here and you'll see what I mean. 

Initially, I am going to concentrate on gathering together musicians, songwriters and singers, as that is my main area of experience.  But I will be expanding as I go on. 

All I'm asking is that you give me a commitment that you are willing to perform totally acoustic in the near future.  

There is just one other thing you will need, and that is a profile.  I'll be using reverbnation to organise everything.  I have been on it for a while and it's just the best and it's totally free. 

So what do you need to do?  Simply get a reverbnation profile and email me your details either at  or  and I will be in touch. 

I've also got a profile at to try and generate more interest.  There will be a website in the future when I get around to it, I've had the domain name for over a year! 

Pure Acoustica will be hosting events in and around the Southampton area to start with, so bear that in mind before committing. 

I have many other ideas in the pipeline, but I will let you know those at a later date.
