JON WINDLE (EX-LITTLE MAN TATE)
When Little Man Tate decided to call it a day in October 2009, Jon Windle had one of two choices…….go and find himself a ‘day’ job - or maybe give it one more crack and see if the world was ready to listen to what he had to say.
Not that it was quite that straight forward….in fact, it was only during a break between studio sessions writing for other people that the bug bit gain.
Released on 18th October 2010, almost a year to the day after the demise of LMT, Step Out The Man (Tiny Teeth Records) received both critical and public acclaim. Although more mature than previous work, Windle has stayed true to his roots and fundamental beliefs around song writing “…I love country music, love the way it tells a story…I want to write about specific events, not general social commentary…”.
Accompanied by blistering high energy live performances, he has proved to the cynics that he has the ability to move away from the comfort of a group, and stand out to be counted in his own right - captured perfectly in the tone of the title track to last years album.
NEW ALBUM OUT 28.05.2012
Joby was born and raised in Yorkshire (just like really good bread). He has been writing for five years.
"Joby exudes tenderness in a new acoustic flavoured way. Dead beautiful singer-songwriter, gorgeous melodies and sensuous vocals. Definitely one for the ladies."
"As usual, beautiful songs, sung with the heart of a poet."
(Pete Long, Acoustic Circus)
"The lyrics are the main focus here and Joby has a real talent when it comes to poetry."
(Russ Petcher, 'For The Record', Birstall & Batley News)
