Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded them on their own albums; Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark, Garth Brooks, Maura O’Connell and Janis Ian, to name a few. But there’s nothing quite like hearing the writer sing them.

In the early '80s Buddy was a regular on the Chicago club scene, then in 1986, he secured a publishing and writing deal with EMI and moved to Nashville: people were starting to pay attention. His third album, Poetic Justice, brought him to wider attention in the UK (the title track was recorded by Maura O’Connell). Bob Harris began playing the album and he toured here for the first time, including appearing at Cambridge Festival

More recently he’s collaborated with the legendary Art Garfunkel and Maia Sharp. The three of them wrote and recorded an album together called ‘Everything Waits To Be Noticed’ before touring in America and Europe.

“Buddy can say more with few words and less hoopla than anyone I know. He’s a master of the understatementGretchen Peters

"All I knew about Buddy Mondlock before I chose to listen to and review his new CD was that he had a reputation as a great songwriter whom others sought out to cover his songs. But now I know him as a wonderful singer and storyteller as well. I think Mondlock is one of the greats on the contemporary music scene."
Roberta B. Schwartz

Joining Buddy for this special show is Bristol-based indie singer-songwriter Jane Taylor. When her song, Fall on Me, was recently played on Johnnie Walker’s Drive Time show on BBC Radio 2, he was inundated with e-mails wanting to know who this new singer songwriter was, where they could find out about her, and most importantly would he please play more. He had so many requests that he plugged her website the next day, and informed the listeners that it was taken from her debut album, Montpelier. One live Radio 2 session later, and a distribution deal with Pinnacle followed alongside a national release of the album, and support slots with Jools Holland, Seth Lakeman and Paolo Nutini. Jane Taylor's journey had truly begun and she has since toured with the likes of Andy Fairweather-Low, Bill Wyman, Dean Friedman and Blue Nile’s Paul Buchanan.

Jane will be performing with 2 of her band members – cellist Beth Porter and Robin Davies on bass.

Jane Taylor is no ordinary singer songwriter. She has this intangible magic in her voice. The kind that draws you in and holds you right there until the moment you notice that you've forgotten to breathe and then you hear her words (which bizarrely seem to have been written for you), and stand there transfixed like its a bit of fate that brought you here and I will defy anyone not to leave without a cd or at least humming one of her songs”
