As the Autumn leaves turn red, delicious new fruit will appear I promise.
Meanwhile – have a listen to
our podcasts here. Now – there are ideas afoot.
If you are a tinnitus
sufferer and have a musical relationship with your tinnitus, do please feel
free to get in touch.
What I mean by a musical

Already I’m delighted to say that the wonderful young folk talent
Isobel Anderson has already agreed to contribute to the show and she’ll be
featured along with a few other remarkable guests. Isobel's voice is a remarkable one. I heard her sing live at a folk club in Twickenham recently and found myself literally struggling to believe what I was hearing. Her tone has echoes of Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell. The turns and weaves of her simple but incredibly affecting original melodies honestly made me gasp out loud. Her songs are at times searingly modern and in the next moment of another time. The gentle wit of her razor sharp observations on men and her relationships with them were beautifully etched. And in just a brief conversation afterwards she began to reveal to me a fascinating perspective on not just tinnitus but pain of different sorts. So - in anticipation of my recorded conversation with her, I wholeheartedly recommend that you have a listen to Isobel's new track "Gentlemen" and all of her other music here.
And please get in touch if you feel you may have something to offer to the new show.
