‘An uncompromising vision shall always divide opinion, for such is the unswerving conviction evident in the creation itself.’
‘The Captain was born to be an entertainer, perhaps even a prophet…watching his show is a life altering experience…heavy excesses mixed with hedonism, gluttonies and musical debauchery. Think Monty Python meets Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody’. The Huffington Post
‘Cinemascopic, epic’ – Tom Robinson BBC6 Music
The Captain is not just the figurehead of his musical vessel: he’s ringmaster; bard; troubadour; master of ceremonies and sage. With one leg in early 20th Century vaudeville and the other in tomorrow’s social commentary (yes, he has very long legs!), there’s far more to him and his absurdly engaging world than any of your ten-a-penny musical stars. Seen through showers of glitter, kaleidoscopic lens flares and in the rainbows in a million puddles, the Captain of the Lost Waves tells stories to connect with everyone past, present and future.
The Captain is the kind of ebullient troubadour you might imagine flitted from village to village in centuries past. Indeed, with no concrete details as to his Earthly origins (beyond some vagaries about the Wild Wild West of Yorkshire in England where he grew up) what can be said is that he has travelled extensively, taking his show to audiences who are transported aboard his mystical voyages as he variously inhabits the personae of Scaramouche, The Pied Piper and all the good captains rolled into one (Hook, Pugwash and Beaky for starters).
As an artist growing up in Northern England, the Captain’s wide variety of life experiences inform his craft. Much of his musical work has taken place outside of the usual gigging scene, many shows within prisons, secure units, mental health wards, hospitals and one to one engagements with the terminally ill. Many of these encompassed song writing workshops in a highly intuitive manner.
This truly interconnected way on working with vulnerable groups in society translates in everything that the Captain does. So even in conventional settings, shows are always based on promenade performances and immersive engagement with his audiences.
