ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hilary Spencer (That Voice in acapella meistersingers Artisan) and Grant Baynham (ex-'That's Life!' and comic songsmith to the stars) have been working together since 2002 and it's all going awfully well. The gigs are invariably rapturously received (see reviews) and bookings are building nicely (see giglist).
QuickSilver, so named because the initials H & g also form the elemental symbol for mercury, is all about Hilary's voice and Grant's guitar-playing and writing. And the chemistry is indeed wonderful: the material (roughly half self-penned) includes all the things you can imagine doing with two voices and an acoustic guitar, plus a good few that you probably can't. Both performers are experienced pros, well known for their on-stage repartee, so the gigs flow seamlessly and are by turns moving, funny, relaxed and occasionally jaw-dropping.
"Make 'Em Laugh!" explores QuickSilver's love of the well-crafted comic song and is a live recording of their stage show which includes songs by such comic geniuses and Tom Lehrer, Flanders and Swann and Noel Coward as well as a healthy helping of QuickSilver's own sharp and witty gems.

"QuickSilver's stomping finale of Victoria Wood's 'Let's Do It' alone is worth the ticket money". Kirkgate Centre Cockermouth.
"Our Folkstage artists were QuickSilver, an incredibly talented duo with rollicking performance and dramatic voices who really put on a show. The audience continued applauding so loudly at the conclusion that I could barely get the show off the air. What a vivacious duo." Rich Warren, presenter, WFMT Radio Chicago
