    Doddnaze Artists:

Started in September 2012 because there’s always space for more live music in people’s lives. We represent the creative who are unusually good at what they do

We are based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, a town often featured in guides as 'the fourth funkiest town in the world', ‘the lesbian capital of the north’, ‘hippy central’, ‘a great little town for independent shops’ and ‘a bit unusual’ … the truth is out there somewhere

Doddnaze artists are different – all in their different ways. They may be  bringing laptops into folk songs, performing the songs of Jacques Brel, writing contemporary 'acoustic' songs, re-inventing the country sound or producing psychedelic  garage or railing against the government and global capitalism ... but they all do it very well

So, although we seems to be developing a nice line in Americana, we have folk in various forms, country, blues, gypsy azz and several radical political songwriters plus garage punk, ska and an 80s party band

And between us we think they're all great in their own ways

We can provide performers for gigs, and festivals as long as you want something a bit different from the usual - we can also provide stage management, compere and a great green room and artists liaison experience
