Horne's Gift Shop 14


Whitby GB   Feb 2018


Artist Bio

Influences:   I wish I'd written "Little Palaces" by Elvis Costello, "Rain Roll In" by Eilen Jewell, "Tangled Up In Blue" by Bob Dylan, "The Great Affair" by The Chemists (under-rated Birmingham indie band that I was in, circa 1990), and Laura Marling's "Suite" from "Once I Was An Eagle".

Keepin' it unreal in the pubs of Whitby (occasionally London) since 2004.

If you want to call me by name, I'm Jon Horne. If you like the words, more of them are available in bookshops, Amazon, and Kindle Store.


If you like the noises, click the Bandcamp link.

12 of last year's songs can be found here, lightly edited and re-recorded in March: https://jonhorne.bandcamp.com/album/w...

I'm always interested in collaboration. No promises, mind.

    Sorry mate this FAWM had been a fail due to learning to be a parent! It's too late now but you're welcome to help yourself to the lyrics.

    Well, you're very kind to imagine I'm too young for Aztec Camera! Thanks for the comparison, I was quite surprised at that. Nevertheless I know Roddy Frame shares some of the same influences as me, so I'll take that compliment, thanks!

    As for the second lines struggling to rhyme, we'll that is an ongoing issue for me, though this time they seemed to come easier than usual. Not totally sure what to do about it if I'm honest!

    yeah, I could never keep the modes straight, until a few years ago i got “volunteered” to teach a beginning music theory class, and had to learn them in a hurry. Nothing motivates like the fear of looking stupid in front of a lot of high schoolers!

  • @sueawesome  Feb 2019

    I updated the post to include the lyrics and commented as well. thank you so much again for doing a demo!

  • @sueawesome  Feb 2019

  • @valeriecox  Feb 2019
