About Jonathan Tarplee songwriter/musician

Songs described by The Musician Magazine as containing idiosyncratic yet highly articulate lyrics married with welcoming guitar melodies. Jonathan Tarplee is perhaps the alternative-universe stem-cell product of Neil Young & Jonathan Richman. An intense artist of emotional, memorable and sometimes quirky songs. Jonathan has released critically acclaimed music and had his tunes used by the BBC and the SAS (Surfers Again Sewerage) among others.

Jonathan had initial success when a BBC Horizon show used some of his work for incidental music and shortly afterwards the S.A.S (Surfers Against Sewerage not the other one!) utilized a song for a video soundtrack. He went on to perform in bands and solo shows supporting the likes of Nick Harper and Attila the Stockbroker and playing venues mainly around the North including The Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival, The Greystones, Liverpool International Festival, The International Eisteddfod (Folk-Friday), The Lomax, The Nantwich Words & Music Festival, Manchester's Northern Quarter and so on.

His song No Tobacco, No Jesus, an infectious earworm with his band The Blue Yellows, became the summer anthem of 6 Towns Radio before Jonathan re-emerged with his solo album as a contemporary, edgy folk-troubadour with a soulful intensity.

Sounds like (according to others); Jonathan Richman, The Dandy Warhols, John Martyn, Neil Young, The The.
