OOTB 658 – Thursday 30th November – Jim Bryce

Jim Bryce

As 2017 closes in, Out of the Bedroom has two more top notch shows for you. Open mic night number 658 is on this Thursday 30th November in the backroom of Woodland Creatures on Leith Walk. Feature act for OOTB 658 is the legendary man of many talents Jim Bryce. First open slot is 8pm and we finish up at 11pm. Entry is free for all whether you are a performer of original material or a music lover. Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot, with 10-15 minutes per act depending on the number of performers. Host for the evening will be our newest host Majk Stokes.

For OOTB number 657 (16th November) we had a good, enthusiastic crowd though more musicians would have been nice – musicians, are you hearing me? ?. The evening featured: host Tina Louise Avery, Michael, Colin Whitelaw (aka Colin Anytime), Jonas Cimermanas (aka Skip the Android), James IgoeLach and feature act Startled Bee.

Jim Bryce is… unique. If you want a “typical singer-songwriter” – whatever that is – you’re not going to get it. Bryce veers wildly from dissonant boogie-woogie to rock to MOR, from jazz-tinged musings to elegiac pibroch to music-hall. The influences are legion; the results unmistakably Bryce. Jim’s lyrics can be political, achingly beautiful, witty or plain daft. As a composer, he has written for BBC, theatres the length of the country, Ceebeebies and squeaky stuff for the concert-hall, with works performed at the Ravenna Festival and on the Edinburgh Fringe.

“Decidedly quirky songs, somewhere between boogie-woogie and advanced atonality” (The Scotsman) “Randy Newman after a pint of Pimms” (RBL music). “The Noel Coward for our generation.” (Joe Goldblatt) “Strums a guitar, plonks a keyboard, and has no idea why he’s here.” (Jim Bryce)

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…
