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…

Mamma Mia! | Wales Millennium Centre

This glorious ABBA musical is so much fun, your cheeks will ache from smiling for two hours. The cast are superb and genuinely look like they are having the time of their lives belting out those ABBA classics. Mamma Mia is now in its 18th year and shows no sign of slowing down, constantly playing to sell out crowds in the West End and on its UK tour. The reason for its success is down to the songs, when Benny and Bjorn penned those classic tunes decades ago little did they know those hits would go on to inspire a Musical and also a smash hit movie. Mamma Mia has earned its place alongside shows like Grease and The Sound Of Music it's a show you can never tire of.
The cast in this production are just incredible and as well as having pitch perfect vocals they perform some great comedy throughout the performance, like I said earlier your cheeks will ache from smiling. Sara Poyzer (Donna) delivers an outstanding rendition of 'The Winner Takes It All' and there's some great…
