Into The Ark Interview

Dane Lloyd and Taylor Jones also known as Into The Ark have signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell and Paolo Nutini's management team will be looking after the guys.

Into The Ark play Clwb Ifor Bach on December 13th and marks the groups return to the capital. 


Hi guys, how're you?

We're good thanks!

First of all well done on all the success so far! Are you excited to be back in Cardiff & playing Clwb Ifor Bach on Tuesday 13th?

Yes! We haven’t played home in a while, these gigs always get a bit messy (in a good way…)

It's quite a big stage compared to busking on the streets, do you treat it the same? Do you get nervous?

Yeah I think it's good if you're still getting a bit nervous but we treat all shows the same, even if there's one person in the crowd. Fingers crossed there will be a few more than that though. 

Tell us a little about the new single ''My Ghost'...
My Ghost was our first single that we released on our own label - BLACKWOOD RECORDS - it was out a few weeks ago and we’re really proud of it and the reactions it got. So, we’d like to thank everyone who watched, listened or downloaded the song - we appreciate you spreading the love! We're now working on a new song called ‘Brightest Creatures’ and the video for that follows very soon. We filmed the Brightest Creatures video in an empty Motorpoint Arena one Monday afternoon in November - which was great fun. But both of these tracks were recorded in London, in a really old school studio. Pretty much all of the instruments on the songs are from the 60’s so hopefully we've captured a bit of the past.

Supporting Paolo Nutini at his Newport gig must've been a dream come true? A brilliant cause too...

It was insane, by far our best gig to date. We are both massive fans of Paolo, so to finally share a stage with him was mental. I know, what a top bloke, he even met all our family one by one. He was a true gent.

And you were recording in the same studio and met Kylie Minogue?

There's a studio in London called Sarm and Kylie was just chilling, eating her yogurt on the sofa in front of us. So we pretended we didn't know it was her and introduced ourselves!! Then she asked us for a photo for her own social media...pretty rad.

Best of luck with everything guys, we're excited for the show!

Thank you, really looking forward to it.

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Bernard Poyser | A Great Cardiffian

Just like everyone that knew Bernard Poyser we was devastated to hear of his sudden passing this month. Bernard was a great supporter of any event we was involved in, along with his wife Sandra and daughter Mel he volunteered every year at The Great Roath Bake Off and attended every RoathRocks gig. It was only a month ago he attended Nathan's  exhibition in the city centre, causing chaos as he manoeuvred his mobility scooter in the small exhibition area. Bernie was the life and soul of the party, always telling jokes and always laughing. We will miss the laughs, we will miss the jokes and the singing, your tales of the swinging sixties often had us in shock but always hysterics. This month we honour our friend The Cardiff Times Cardiffian Of The Month.

Bernard married Sandra in 1967 and they had Melanie and Christian in the early 70s. They lived in Roath for 44 years. (He grew up in Llanishen).
Bernard was a motor mechanic by trade.  He started working at J Sherlock and Son, Roath…

Scottish singer Jai McDowall won Britains Got Talent in 2011, the same year a certain food artist Nathan Wyburn made the semi finals. Jai is back with an amazing new single 'Cry' we caught up with Jai to see what he's been up to...
W&W: You won Britain's Got Talent 2011 (also shared your semi final with Nathan), 6 years on, any regrets? 
Jai:It was 5 years (don’t age us both too much) lol 
I don’t have any regrets I get to do a lot that I wouldn’t be able to do had I not been on that show, I will always be grateful for the platform I got from being on Britains Got Talent.

W&W: Oh gosh yeah 5!! Tell us what you've been doing since winning the show.. 
Jai: I have recorded an album with Syco and performed in concerts all over the UK and in China. I also got into songwriting as well and now do a lot of writing as well as performing. I have also recently got into Theatre and acting, so looking forward to seeing where life takes me.
W&W: You upload some great cover…
