Plumhall’s sophomore album, ‘The Ghost of Noise’ was released in May in the middle of lockdown and like so many artists, they have not had the chance to do a proper launch and tour in order to promote it. So, when the opportunity came up to do a first show at Caroline Club since lockdown started (albeit sans audience!), they were the first name that sprang to mind, so here they are!
Plumhall are Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall, an electrifying Yorkshire based duo whose award winning self-penned songs are already winning them plaudits from the likes of R2 Magazine (4 stars), Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff), Steve Knightley (Show of Hands) and many more. The pair deliver guitar and harmony driven textures of folk, Americana and pop, and have have been wowing audiences on the live acoustic circuit in the UK.
Michelle & Nick have supported Miles Hunt and Erica Nockalls of The Wonder Stuff, Phil Beer, Ian McNabb, John Otway, Larkin Poe, Dan Donnelly & Jon Sevink, The South, Andy White, Henry Priestman, Chas & Dave, Graham Gouldman, Albert Lee and the late Peter Tork of The Monkees among many others. Peter Tork even invited them onstage to perform Daydream Believer with him. A very special moment!
They appear in recent feature film, The Runaways (starring Mark Addy, Tara Fitzgerald and Molly Windsor), for which Nick wrote an original song and both Michelle and Nick arranged folk music for two pivotal scenes.
Reviews for 'The Ghost of Noise':
'For all the cinemascope sonic palette, however, at its heart is the sharp songwriting, tasteful playing and seductive harmonising that is the duo's trademark... if there's any justice, 'City Starlings' should be singing out from radios everywhere this summer...' - Oz Hardwick - RnR Magazine
'Twelve songs that display range, breadth and huge originality... a mini-masterpiece' - Nigel Schofield - Tykes News/Stirrings
'moving and magical melodies... 'The Ghost Of Noise' is an accomplished work' - Christopher Nosnibor - whisperinandhollerin.com
