It was in 1973 when Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford first formed the band that would that would see them dubbed “The New Lennon and McCartney”. Forty five years later they continue to tour in Squeeze, together as a duo, or as solo performers.

Consummately professional, yet distinctly personal Glenn Tilbrook’s solo shows feature wonderful Squeeze songs both new and old alongside occasional spontaneous interpretations of respected songs by other artists.

Support Charlie Austen entered the scene as featured vocalist for cult blues legends Nine Below Zero, after catching the attention of Glenn Tilbrook and Dennis Greaves at a local jam. Many high profile gigs have followed, from Glastonbury to the Royal Albert Hall, with many more on the horizon. Charlie’s own music is a brand of finger-picking folk-soul, emphasising carefully crafted lyrics, intricate guitar parts and unusual melodies to suit an airy-yet-powerful, blues-infused vocal style. All delivered with a genuine smile and, more often than not, a conspicuous lack of shoes.
