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.

The Addams Family | Wyburn and Wayne Cardiff Times

Frightfully Fabulous Family Time! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Cooler than the Kardashians, more twisted than the Trumps, The Addams Family have descended upon Cardiff Bay for twelve nights of music and mischief on their UK tour of the Hit musical.
Even before the show started I was in awe of the ghoulishly gothic and gorgeous set and then the lights dimmed, the fingers start snapping and the magic begins as the kookiest family of them all take to the stage. The Addams Family have graced our TV and cinema screens for over 50 years and this production has a perfectly cast ensemble to play the iconic death obsessed family that everyone loves. Les Dennis is fantastic as Uncle Fester, he has some great numbers in the show and his lovable character brings much giggles. Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely are superb as Morticia & Gomez, they pay great tribute to every actor before them that played these roles possessing all the chemistry and charisma that made these parents the most devilish yet deliciou…

Crazy For You

Gershwin, Glamour & Glitz! Crazy For You is a Glorious Hit!
Cardiff went crazy for Crazy For You Tuesday night at The Wales Millennium Centre. Featuring probably the most talented ensemble ever to grace a stage, these guys act, sing, dance and if that ain't enough provide the music to the Gershwin brothers beloved score. 
It's clear why Tom Chambers stole the show and the prize on BBC Ones Strictly Come Dancing, like the energiser bunny on acid he dances with pace, grace and the stamina of an athlete while singing those big Gershwin numbers. He's charismatic and hugely entertaining as Bobby Child and there's great onstage chemistry between him and Charlotte Wakefield (Polly Baker). Big surprise of the night goes to Caroline Flack who's voice was beautiful, strong and convincing in the fabulous role of broadway vamp Irene Roth.  Crazy For You has it all, the big numbers, slickly choreographed routines and lots of laughs. The scene between Chambers and Neil Ditt …

Emeli Sande with support Calum Scott

On friday 21st October 2017, Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena was entertained by one of the UK's best selling artists of the past decade, Emeli Sande, and her incredible support act, Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott.

The arena was full and the atmosphere electric. Britain's Got Talent alumni Calum Scott opened the show, with high energy, crisp & powerful vocals serenading Cardiff with some of his own tracks from his up coming debut album. A personal highlight being his next single "You Are The Reason" which was both emotional and captivating, alongside a surprise cover to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. Of course the crowds went wild as he thanked them for and quote "one of the best gigs I've ever done!" And continued to belt out the hit that started his career "Dancing On My Own". Calum is without a doubt an artist to watch out for over the coming years - raw talent.

Emeli Sande... one woman, one voice (not too discredit her a…
