Jez Harley is a singer/songwriter who is a regular performer with both The Good Ship Band and Harley & Woods. Jez has achieved commercial and critical success as a songwriter with Scott English and as a singer/songwriter in the early 2000’s.

Jez wants to share some of the songs and sentiments that he feels are more appropriate for solo material - using just piano and voice, the work is delivered through stripped-back, intimate performances that aim to illuminate and contemplate life's most precious and delicate facets whilst inspiring the audience to respond to the material on an instinctive level.

The Ackerleys

It is a year now since Cyrano’s Joe Ackerley teamed up with his sister Alice to form ‘The Ackerleys’ as a side line - turned major project!  Already they have a fast-growing repertoire of folk/pop tunes, some light and uplifting, some moody and soulful, but all featuring close harmony, strong chord structure and catchy melody.  Joe employs his prodigious song writing skills and his own rich baritone to complement and showcase Alice‘s striking voice.  Joe’s roots are in rock music as is well known to many of on the TW music scene, his deep seated influences an unusual mix of Pearl Jam/ Radiohead/ Elbow/Crowded House/Jeff Buckley. His sister Alice, just turned 17, provides a more contemporary vibe – Laura Marling, The Staves, Florence and the Machine, Emmy the Great, Marina & the Diamonds. The result is delightfully different - but judge for yourself. The dynamic duo has now added lead guitar and drums in the form of Steve McCormack, and Matt Wilson.
