Press release from: SONGS&WHISPERS

From September 13th to October 6th the international music network sets up the ninth CIRCUIT of 2013.

The following artists will be part of the tour across north-western Europe:


Stressechoes are a four-piece acoustic act from Cheltenham in the southwest of England. Founded in 2008 when introduced by mutual friends, singer-songwriters Alex Petrie and Andrew Corey realised both a mutual love of similar music and an ability to gel together in songwriting and vocal harmonies. They began to write material, soon adding Stephen Osmond, another singer-songwriter, who quickly converted to the bass guitar and drummer Ben Hawling. In 2011, Stressechoes released their debut EP 'Bitter Acoustic Noise' to extremely positive reviews and local/ national radio airplay. The follow-up in 2012 'Goodnight, Impossible' focused on darker themes including religion, murder, loss and desperation. Their music has been described by the BBC as “…heart-on-sleeve storytelling, supported by beautiful understated music”. Making the shortlist for several unsigned awards and having completed succesful radio appearance and headline acoustic stage slots in the UK, Stressechoes are incredibly excited to be touring Europe in 2013.

Influences: Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, I am Kloot, The Cure, Joy Division

"Stressechoes' songs are a triumph of heart-on-sleeve storytelling supported by understated, beautiful music." - Stephen Morris BBC Introducing Gloucestershire

TOM RICHARDSON (South West Victoria, AUS)

With so many talented artists vying for a spot on the world stage, it is becoming increasing more difficult to find somebody doing things a little differently... Tom Richardson is that artist. An adventurous yet humble nomad, in the past 18 months alone, Tom has performed in 14 different countries across the globe. Tom uses the latest in loop pedal technology to create a wall of sound, overdubbing four part vocal harmonies, complicated percussion grooves and lead and rhythm guitar parts, all live on stage. While live looping may not be a new phenomenon, rather than focusing on laying down one continuous groove, Tom dances around the stage, using his feet to create different song sections, starting, stopping and layering various instruments as he goes.
Following a busy Australian summer of festivals, described as the “best opening to a festival yet!” (Port Fairy Folk Festival), Tom Richardson once again took his music to audiences around the world. Armed with his infectious personality and contagious melodies, Tom singlehandedly entertained audiences from major Canadian festivals, dozens of American and European bars, to highland village tribes in Fiji. Tom heads into 2014 with new solo looping show, a large swag of songs and a guitar case full of stories.
Releasing his debut double album ‘Guide Your Ship’ in 2011 with his full band, the Tom Richardson Project, Tom collected numerous national songwriting and blues music awards.
Combining his love of music, travelling and the ocean, Tom also loves finding the time whilst travelling the world to empower ambitious, wheelchair bound youths through adaptive surfing and skating programs, through the organisations ‘Ocean Healing Group’ and ‘Sharing The Stoke’.

Influences: Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson, Dave Matthews, City & Colour, Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne

“Tom has huge potential and the proposed ‘project’ is timed perfectly to further build his creative work and inject another critical boost to his career in music. I will eat my dinner suit if this project is not a roaring success!”
Jamie McKew – Festival Director Port Fairy Folk Festival

Find all tour dates on

Since January 2009 “Songs & Whispers”-concerts take place every month in different venues around Bremen. International and local artists are fascinating a growing audience in special venues like historical cinemas, theatres and cozy bars. The musicians’ genres vary from Alternative Folk, Alternative Country to Americana, Bluegrass or Singer-Songwriter. The atmosphere of the concerts is changing with the choice of venues and lives from the artists’ interaction with the audience. An important characteristic of Songs & Whispers is that most concerts are played acoustic or semi-acoustic.

Songs & Whispers is aiming at creating a worldwide network of musicians and an exchange of ideas from different artists and nations. We are presenting a selection of international artists and local supports every month. Furthermore we try to be a platform for other musical organisations like schools of music in letting them perform in our supporting program.
