One Man And His Beard has been around for ages,but only in 2010 made a mark nationally playing "save 6 music"in front of the BBC on the final protest to save the station https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM_fhNY2n5M
Currently campaigning to stop the BBC from taking BBC3 off mainline TV, no proper recording yet,apart from this impromptu video with formed on spot Beardettes done while out busking at a shopping centre in Poulton Le Fylde https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM_fhNY2n5M
And obviously heavily promoting "England Are Gonna Win The World Cup(Obviously) song while England are in the World Cup this song will be included on the best indie World Cup songs album distributed by Universal called "Come On England"(Hopefully a video soon)
After the Save 6 Music campaign in 2010 turned attention to Libraries see the live video of We Need Libraries from Speak up for Libraries Rally at Westminster Hall 14/3/2012 here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG-kC2t5dOg and the song was featured on a BBC Radio 4 documentary "The Library Returns"
Last year 2013 played the "Tour De 10 Libraries"playing 10 Libraries in a day to mark National Libraries Day,simultainiously releasing the National Libraries Day song,and in August released a reworking of "We Are The Winners song,now called"He Is A Winner"in honour of Andy Murray winning Wimbledon on July 7th,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Fw6OCLohvE
This year there is finally a proper video for "We Need Libraries"which includes the likes of Robin Ince,Ian Rankin,Rev Richard Coles, Andrew Collins,Gideon Coe and Lucy Porter holding their Library cards along with many others,its the most watched One Man And His Beard video so far with over 8,000 views at the moment ,watch here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdMcjhM3IvM
This year have also written the theme tune for a new Festival in Preston in September and there is another song not yet recorded set to gain some attention!
Picked up loads of influences through listening to lots of radio,everything i hear good or bad may be in there,i dont listen to other bands to get inspiration,it has to come from me!
