Information about RALPHE (Piano Set):
"Just me, an intimate microphone, and a piano, and another unique gadget that could give the piano a new twist... 

Original songs like: "Tell it to the Skies" and "Baby Love Hurts". I'll also throw in a few short covers to taste from the likes of Coldplay
and Muse, and should also start the set with a song from one of my favourite zombie movies :-)

I hope to not do too many of these piano gigs as it may distract from my other project(s) but this should be a nice low key way to 
showcase for friends and the facebook fam :-)
Influences: Radiohead / Coldplay / Jeff Buckley / One Republic."

COME ALONG ITS LIKE A NIGHT OUT AT THE MOVIES (in regards to length time)
If you would like to catch up with some banter, come when doors open so we can hopefully have an intimate rant! :-P
