Hi Friends and "shw mae" to my welsh speaking friends. The 3rd part of a radio play I did recently is on BBC I-player so tune in if you speak Welsh! There are a few english language scenes but my english speaking friends may find the overall story rather hard to follow! Its set in Wales and Zimbabwe and the plot jumps back and forth in a couple's life over a period of 15 years — it was interesting to think about how one's voice and speaking mannerisms change over time and we were aware of that throughout the recording.Young voice, older voice, young voice, older voice...etc! I had a great time and met some lovely people. Last episode is on Sunday night and its rather a dramatic one for me.
Here is the link for ep 2 and you'll see ep 1 below on the I-player page.
Hi there. My right-hand-man Dave (below) and I are enjoying the journey of working on my songs at the moment and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you before long. Other news, I’m going to be recording a radio drama series for Radio Wales/Cymru soon and I’m also looking forward to that. Meanwhile check out the video page to see me and Dave doing one of the songs we performed at The David Lynch cabaret a little while ago. The sound on the vid isnt ideal, sounded better live as most things do but many thanks to Gordon Burns for filming it. Here is the link to the vid. Llio xxx
Make sure you also look at the second pic or you might get the wrong idea! This put a huge smile on my face. :-)
I was happy to see a very nice mention of me in a review of the Double R Club's David Lynch show. Link to read it below. I guess he felt I sang one too many verses of Dirt in the Ground though! ( ahem..I do happen to know that other disagreed with him..tee hee) ;-) xx
I had such a great time at The Double R Club's David Lynch cabaret the other day. My eiganharp playing co -performer and friend Dave Kemp even let me loose with the make up on him! Such a great event and I was delighted to take part. There are some photos from the evening on the gallery page. Next, after guesting at Julie Claire's show "All Woman" at the Pheasantry next week, I'm back to continuing with the recording of my own songs - with Dave being my right hand man and co producer. I'm very excited to get these songs recorded and get them out there - however I must admit to being a little nervous also as it has been a very personal creative journey writing these songs. We'll see.....xx
I will be singing at this event on Sept 20th - I think tickets are almost sold out online http://www.wegottickets.com/event/175289 and limited amount on door on the night
Had such a great day yesterday recording with Steve Thomas and David Kemp. Loved every minute and impatient to carry on...roll on next Friday for more...x
So proud - the welsh language television channel S4C is re-showing a tv drama series I was in a few years back called Tair Chwaer which means Three Sisters. It is a black comedy about three sisters and their families and how they form a Country and Western band to escape the monotony of their everyday lives. I played the youngest and most ambitious of the sisters. We filmed three series and a film but I think they are only repeating the first series. So if any of you have S4C which is channel 134 on Sky tune in every Tueday eve at 9.30pm! I think you can add subtitles. Also there is a brief recent interview with us three sisters on the programme "Sam ar y Sgrin" this Friday night on S4C at 8.55pm. My people in the land of my fathers may be a little surprised to see my hair colour change since then...red heads definitely have more fun....xx
Hi Guys - just to let you know I am writing and recording my own material at the moment and am very much looking forward to letting you hear it. Its a real mix of all the influences that I have in music so its hard to define it right now. I sing in all these different styles so it figures I write in all of them too! Meanwhile I'm still enjoying all the dark cabaret gigs down at The Cellar Door so do come along one evening. See you sometime! Llio x
