    Gatefold CD of Big Top Heartbreak debut album, 'Deadbeat Ballads' with original Artwork by Young Turk Designs and photo by Andrew Leo Photography. Oh, and some ruddy good songs.

    "This is an album that could easily become a cult classic" Jim Barr - Portishead and Get The Blessing.

    "The charm of Ian Dury and John Grant, the passion of Tom Waits. It has all of these yet sounds likes nothing else.” Geoff Lloyd – Absolute Radio (Single of the Week)

    ‘DEADBEAT BALLADS’ is the debut album from an original and exciting artist, Big Top Heartbreak.

    Recorded in Bristol with some wonderful musicians including Quinta on saw (Bat For Lashes, Patrick Wolf), Pete Judge (Get The Blessing, Super Furry Animals), Jim Barr (Portishead) and TJ Allen (Bat For Lashes) who also produced and mixed the album.

    Essex born Scott Lavene, the lead man and songwriter, wrote the majority of the songs whilst in a house for the bewildered. Alive again and hungry for the chance to make music, Scott went on tour supporting Blue Rose Code in 2015 and set about making the album. Scott’s honesty, passion and humorous takes on life are here to enjoy in these fresh and original songs.

    Live, Big Top Heartbreak is both a powerful and intimate affair. Touching, funny, honest and a master class in storytelling.

about

Big Top Heartbreak Bristol, UK

A twisted singer/songwriter. Songs from the ashes of a meltdown. Influenced by the skullduggery and honky tonk blues of Tom Waits and Nick Cave, the simple sentiment of Daniel Johnson, the slutty vibe of The Velvet Underground and the cheekiness of Ian Dury. ... more
