“Pilch is at heart a story teller who writes songs about life in all its mucked up, crazy glory. Whatever crosses his radar, be it old love, bad decisions, or dead end jobs, all are intimately observed with a thread of hope and the shadow of a smile.”
Yeah, well I guess that’s me. I’m a singer/songwriter based in North London and as my picture betrays it’s fair to say that I’ve been around the block a few times… Whilst my roots lie in country rock music (man I love the Eagles) I have, over the years, covered many genres from big band jazz to gospel, rock to folk, even did a few seasons with the English National Opera as a kid.
My love of country really started I guess in the early 90’s when we had cable on trial and we could get CMT for a while. That was the Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Lorrie Morgan, Pam Tillis kind of era. Loved the song writing, the story telling, the vids the lot.
I do solo stuff and also perform with my band Pilch and the Midnight Tinklers with whom I recorded the album “Only the Good” a couple of years back. Here’s what some people said about it.
“Enjoyed it immensely. Strong songs, urgently sung and good production too.” – Simon Mayo DJ Radio 2
“This is a fantastic album, filled with sweet melodies, clever harmonies, and fine song writing.” – Steve Harvey, Martin Guitars
“There are some fine songs lurking here and the band’s breezy delivery creates just the kind of good time stuff we all need now” – Acoustic Magazine

My latest single “Nothing But You” is a song about old love and is dedicated to my long-suffering wife. Here’s the proper cheesy video:
