Q

Are you going to try and gey the sos dairy song into the charts? Its really would bring the plight of british dairy farmers into the public eye


Breeze and Wilson responded on 05/23/2013

Thanks for the question Georgina. I think that the 'moment' for the SOS Dairy song has passed (for the time being). We certainly did our best to raise the profile of the song (and the plight of the dairy farmers) and managed to get some BBC airplay....but nothing national or big enough to get it going properly. Lots of people said that I should have got it onto iTunes earlier and that might have helped it to 'chart' but, to be honest....it was just done as a bit of fun to help out my brother in the first instance. I never realised at the time how much it would go on to help the campaign. I felt so proud to have been invited to the Farmers Weekly Awards because of the song, but the moment that touched me the most was when the song was played at Andrew Hemming's funeral. Thanks again for the question and for your support. Toby.

Q

What brought you into this line of music...tis great and I am thoroughly enjoying listening to the cd acquired at the Rugeley venue recently, bless.

Hi - thanks for getting in touch. Difficult to say really......I guess we both just enjoy writing, recording and performing in this style. We're back at Rugeley next year (20th March). Would be great to see you then! Thanks again for your kind words and support. Toby

Q

Hi guys just want to say thank you very much for the gig at Kingston village hall was truly amazing to see such raw talent. I don't suppose you two can sing Tracy Chapman Fast Car at all.

Nothing in the immediate future I'm sorry.....but if you spread the word then maybe someone in your patch will book us! We'd be happy to do a fundraiser for a local hall or charity up there. All the details can be found here http://www.breezeandwilson.com/index.php.... Or why not put on a house concert and then we'll play in your front room! http://www.breezeandwilson.com/index.php....

Still no answer to my previous question. Graham?When did you first pick up a guitar and why? Remember 'Lay it on the Line'? Forgot all about it until recently. Bazzzzzzzzzzimmmmmer

Sorry Bazzimmer, Graham doesn't access these questions very often and I can't answer these ones. I'll ask him to get back to you. Good to see you at Biddulph! Toby

Q

Unjust prosecution, unobtainable love, looking forward to death - happy? Great songs however! Keep up the good work. John

Made me laugh a lot...you make a very good point :o)

Q

Generous and enjoyable gig at Church Eaton. Excellent music and singing, but why the depressing range of songs? The superb banjo song showed you have a lighter side.
Happy New Year, (I think!)
John

Hi John. Thanks for the feedback...especially pleased that you liked the banjo song!
Now then....the oft asked question about our choice of songs...deserves a detailed answer....
There is no denying that we do like our sad songs. We are drawn to them and find that we enjoy playing them a lot. Graham and I gave up playing solely for money a long time ago and, with that, came the liberty of not having to play the standard repertoire that a 'pub audience' expects to hear.....which is one of the reasons that we don't play shows in pubs. Sounds selfish I know....but we play to satisfy our souls as much as anything. If that means that we lose a chunk of our audience because they think that we're too depressing then that's just too bad. Banjo song, Nadine, Framed, When it comes my turn, Simple joy, Papa loved Mama, Jackie D, Fellini, Roll the dice. All upbeat in the major key. We joke about the bitter and twisted songs...but there's actually quite a lot of happy stuff in there! Thanks again!
