Biografia

In the mid-to-late 60’s, Great Britain saw a revival of American Blues. It was paradoxical that an art-form so molded by the Negro’s experience in American society should get its most recognition and exposure from white Europeans. Not only did many famous musicians come from that era (Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, Jeff Beck, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, to name a few) but for that brief time, the American fathers of the genre got their due- performances in front of large and appreciative audiences, and swanky hotel rooms. It was during this huge revival that a young art student named Kevin Coyne put up a flyer at the Derby School For The Arts seeking to jam some blues.

Kevin Coyne was born in Derby in 1944. He is, in my opinion, one of the greatest talents ever produced out of Europe. His voice cuts to your soul, while tingling your spine along the way. His deep, powerful cords give a voice to society’s outcasts- the mentally ill (with whom he worked with for many years after dropping out of art school), the working class, battered women, the countless lonely, the deserted elderly. But, all the people he so champions in his songs are also a parallel to himself- a stoic loner cast into the arena of popular music.

Babble is a concept album about a relationship falling apart, set in the late 60s. The main theme is communication, but there’s a lot of brutal honesty in these songs.
