Joe Tilston releases his second solo album

Joe Tilston

Joe Tilston is the bass player in punk band Random Hand. Tightrope is his second solo album which follows on from his debut album Embers that received critical acclaim. Joe has a punk heart, but his music has a different heartbeat. It’s Folkish, it’s beautiful, and at times cutting and direct. Tightrope is full of songs of Death & Hope and is unashamed to bare all. The music takes influence from a childhood brought up in smoky, beer swilled folk clubs, where his parents, renowned folk artists Maggie Boyle and Steve Tilston held court and shared their music. Offering echoes of his roots and a nod to his previous album Embers, new album Tightrope still bears the mark of teenage rebellion that has taken Joe on a journey through the world’s punk and ska scenes, for nearly two decades.
