about

For over a decade I have been doing shows in a little Cotswold town called Stroud. It was an instant love affair.

lyrics

LYRICS:

[Chorus]
Stroud, you make me proud
To be associated with your little town
Stroud, you make me proud
Of all the artists you embrace from miles around

[Verse 1]
2007 was the year it all began
In the courtyard of an Artspace where the reggae record span
There was Alex, Uta, Moina, Jo and Neil
That closeness never left us we love each other still
One sold out show, and then another,
That tradition, it seemed to stick
In the valley of the Cotswolds
Together we do fit

[Verse 2]
Musician and creator, descend upon this town
So many end up moving here, adding to this sound
The waterfall that whispers to the stroud at Ruskin Mill
The home-made pottery that sits upon my windowsill.

[Bridge]
Brunel he built a good shed here, we did a show
A band of musketeers
The Mighty Johny Street Ska Orchestra played and shook the stone
We couldn't hear the trains pass by from brass section alone... BOOM! :D

[Chorus]
