The Exeter based artist GRICE and his band will be performing at St Stephens Church in Exeter on Saturday 14 December 2013. This is the start of a tour which will see him perform in selected churches and small venues around the South West, Bristol and London to raise vital funds for the Stroke Association.
The singer-songwriter, musician and producer, GRICE released his debut solo album PROPELLER in 2012, it was shortlisted for the MPG Awards 2013 and has been played by Tom Robinson on his BBC Radio 6 Music show. The album which has been described as 'a gripping and poignant collection of acoustic rock diamonds’ (The Musician) will be performed in this event for the first time in its entirety by the 5 piece band and will be accompanied by visual projections taken from the Exeter Blitz.
GRICE will be donating proceeds to the Stroke Association, a charity which is close his ‘heart’ as his father, C J Peters (DFM) who was in the RAF during WWII, suffered a stroke in later life which affected his speech and his ability to work as a fine artist.
St Stephens Church is a historic venue dating back to the Domesday and one of the only buildings left standing following the devastating blitz of 1942.
Amy McKay, Regional Fundraiser for the Stroke Association said: “This gig is a unique opportunity to see an up and coming artist which music lovers can’t afford to miss during this mini tour ahead of some bigger dates in UK and Europe in 2014/15.
“Bring along your mates too. We are a charity which relies on fundraising events like this to continue our vital work of supporting thousands of stroke survivors and their families in the South West and across the UK.”
Doors 8pm - cost £5 (£8 with CD) - proceeds from the event will be donated to the Stroke Association. To hear a sample of GRICE’s music, go to: www.gricemusic.co.uk
