'Songs From The Floodplain' is another return to Jon Boden's rock roots and is his 2nd solo album, the first being the well received, self-released 'Painted Lady'. Jon Boden's most recent albums include the highly acclaimed Burlesque 2006 and Matachin 2008 with dynamic, fast-rising big band, Bellowhead - and Vagabond with the equally feted traditional duo, Spiers & Boden 2008. He has also recorded and performed with Eliza Carthy on both of her Mercury Prize nominated albums.

Press Quotes

"First he delighted the traditionalists with his fiddle playing in that much praised duo Spiers & Boden, then he helped to shake up the new folk scene as leader of the massed ranks of that rousing folk dance and brass big band, Bellowhead. Now, just to show what else he can do, Jon Boden has decided to release an album of his own songs…It's a work of remarkable confidence and bravery and, for the most part, it actually works. He is a versatile singer, best heard on thoughtful, sad-edged songs...Boden is a man to watch"

The Guardian

A mover and shaker on the folk scene, both as half of Spiers & Boden and as founder of the big band Bellowhead, Jon Boden salutes his teenage rock roots... Mixing tenderness and anger in equal measure...Occasionally raw, but a refreshingly original creation'.

The Observer

"One of the greatest artists of any genre, Bellowhead / Spiers & Boden main man Jon Boden has written a masterpiece about what happens when the oil runs out and he's played every single note of it too!"
