Mik Hobson, currently based in the East Midlands, is primarily a singer, vocalist and guitarist who writes song lyrics and poems. He has also worked as a TV and film extra with occasional small parts and as a photographic model. His aim is to entertain, amuse and sometimes challenge the listener either through original material or by (often drastic) re-imaginings of popular songs. He was born in East Cheshire and was influenced by traditional North-West England life, Sixties and Fifties pop music, live and recorded Rock Music, street theatre and traditional and contemporary folk and art performance.
Playing with words. Playing, …….. with words. Puns intended, sometimes not. Recitation, repetition, reading allowed, reading aloud. Souls plumbed, depths plumbed, soles pummelled, deaths funnelled into new beginnings. I strum, I hum, I walk, I talk. I write and at night I sleep and dream. I sing and the dark brings comfort. I bend….. and lend an ear. I groan and moan and cry and try. I create what I can and suffer the consequences.
