Curveballs 12th February 2020 (with Mark Anthony from Lyrical Strangers)

Click below to listen back to the show:

Tonight I was joined in the studio for a second time by singer Mark Anthony, who since his last appearance, has teamed up with multi-instrumentalist Phil Chamberlain to form Lyrical Strangers. Mixing rap, electronica & lots more, the duo release their debut albumĀ A Brand New Day on March 30th, & tonight we heard 4 tracks from it alongside how quickly it all came together & why Mark has a slight grudge (albeit a good-natured one!) against one of the guest collaborators on the album… Find out everything you need to know about Lyrical Strangers online at!
