I'm gonna be performing the whole of Secrets Nobody Keeps at two very special UK gigs - in Leeds and London - in May. I've specially chosen the venues to make the gigs super-intimate and atmospherey. I've never performed some of the songs live before, so it'll be a unique experience for those who manage to get a ticket.
Friday May 16th 2014 at The 100 Club, Oxford St, London: TICKETS
Saturday May 17th 2014 at Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane, Leeds (near Leeds City Train Station): TICKETS
Be there or B².

I'm really proud to announce that my favourite strings are now officially available as a Jon Gomm Signature set! Handmade in Derbyshire by Newtone. These are my personal super-heavy gauge specially chosen after years of experimentation to have a really easy tension at low tunings, and to give a tone that is warm and soulful.

Online Launch Gig:I couldn't decide where to hold a launch gig for the album, so I've decided to have it on the internet, so anybody on Earth can watch it. I'm using a platform called StageIt. Tickets are Pay What You Want and all proceeds go to ChapELFM, a project to build the first ever arts centre/music venue in East Leeds, the grimy place I call my home. Sunday December 1st, 8pm UK time (which is noon in LA, 6pm in Rio, 9pm in Berlin)Tickets here:http://bit.ly/gommgig
I also have a few things lined up for 2014, including a visit to The Isle of Man in January, my first ever gig in Paris in March, and a tour of South America in April. Loads more touring action will be announced soon, as always information is on my website:http://jongomm.com/live-dates?showall=1
OK, I hope you enjoy my new music! I have more videos almost ready to launch so I'll be in touch again soon.
Thankyou for supporting a stubbornly independent musician,
P.S. Massive thanks to everyone who came out to a gig on the UK tour - 30 dates, 28 sold out. Completely wonderful and baffling. :)
I couldn't decide where to hold the album launch gig for Secrets Nobody Keeps, so... it's gonna be on the internet! I'll be playing live in a studio with 3 cameras and awesome sound, so it should be pretty good!
Tickets are Pay What You Want, and any money raised will go to ChapELFM, a project to build the first ever arts and music venue in East Leeds, the grimy place I call my home.
