    About Live from the Living Room: On the 26th of March 2020 I sat down in my living room and with my wife Sarah as the only physical audience member, performed a short set of original songs. Meanwhile a couple of hundred people from all around the world joined me via Facebook Live. Over the next ten or so weeks I did a show every Tuesday, sometimes performing my own songs, sometimes my favourite songs by other artists and (a lot of the time) the favourite songs of my virtual audience. This album contains twelve of my favourite songs from the ‘Live From The Living Room’ sessions. They have been recorded in exactly the way I performed them during the shows with an acoustic guitar and a couple of microphones. The only overdubs are a harmonica (Angel From Montgomery) a harmony vocal (Old Paint) an English horn (Fields Of Gold) and a mere nod at the achingly beautiful string arrangement from Riverman, Nick Drake’s classic song from 1969.

    Johnny The Fox - Demos & Recordings Johnny The Fox was formed in 1985 - featuring Chris Bannister, Martin Talbot, Andrew Talbot and Andrew Rudd, all with a passion for rock based guitar music. With influences such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rush and The Police, the band quickly created a unique blend of guitar driven rock 'n' roll.   A successful live act, Johnny The Fox recognised the importance of writing and recording their own material  and during regular studio sessions between 1985 and 1989 the band recorded over a dozen original songs.   Chris Bannister's emotive lyrics and powerful vocals, Andy Rudd's infectious layered guitar arrangements and the high energy Talbot borthers' rhythm section combined to produce a catalogue of songs that received critical acclaim from the local music press.   These cd's were produced as a short run to raise funds for Croston, a local village that flooded badly in the Boxing Day floods in 2015. Over £2000 was raised from a reunion concert performed at Park Hall, Chorley in January 2016. The packaging is a simple plastic wallet with inlay and tracklist.
