Album Notes
“My blood pressure is higher than a bird in the sky
I’ve got paranoia and anxiety
My friends say I’ll sink, if I don’t see a shrink
I say, music is cheaper than therapy”
Music is cheaper than therapy - Old Compton Street

Since the late 1980s Graham Corbould has been doing the rounds of folk and acoustic clubs in London and the South East playing his own songs, selected covers, guitar instrumentals; add in the odd story and humorous anecdote and an enjoyable evening is in store.
As a song writer Graham addresses a wide spectrum of topics, feelings and issues. Never forgetting that audiences are there to be entertained much effort is put into making songs accessible through strong choruses and verses which carry a story. The stories are varied in topic, not limited to love and loss, but tell of many things. Some have a rye humour about them others address more serious topics.
In addition to his own works Graham will often incorporate covers where applicable; some from his influences (Ray Davies, Al Stewart, Nick Lowe for example) sometimes adaptions of other songs. The guitar features prominently, with some self written instrumentals; by day Graham is a professional guitar tutor. In 2013 Graham sold out the prestigious Mick Jagger Centre with Forever Young, a 70th birthday celebration for Bob Dylan.
