I am proud to say you have been the driving force behind what has turned out to be a very successful re-launch. Thank you!
With so much against us, particularly the snow, nearly half of those committed to coming to the launch show still made the treacherous journey.
From the bottom of my heart, it means the world to me to know that you care that much. There was so much love in the room on the 2nd of March, it really filled what could have otherwise been quite an empty space.
My band were just fantastic, performing to their best. I knew they would produce a high standard of work; that's why I hired them!
The set-list was as follows:
- One and the Many (The Enid - Invicta)
- Who Created Me? (The Enid - Invicta)
- Window's Cracking Sound (Methexis - Suiciety)
- Who Can It Be? (Methexis - Suiciety)
- Origin of Blame (Methexis - Suiciety)
- Moonlit Love (That Joe Payne)
- Trophy (The Enid - Dust)
- Someone Shall Rise (The Enid - Dust)
- I Need a Change (That Joe Payne)

I felt so gutted for my fans when the snow hit two weeks ago. So many people had spent money on tickets and hotels, and how awful for them that they had to surrender to the weather. At least they stayed safe in their homes, which is the most important thing.
As my own way of thanking the people who committed to attending the original Launch Show, I have decided to host an Acoustic Showcase; a matinee performance where I’ll be performing a bunch of songs from my wide catalogue with special guests.
A further limited 100 tickets are now available to the public. As this is a matinee performance, families and people of all ages are welcome.
The event will feature a variety of stripped back versions of my collaborative works, with never before heard acoustic renditions of songs by The Enid, Methexis, the soon to be released John Holden Music album “Capture Light”, as well as my own solo material.
Special guests include Nikitas Kissonas, the writer behind the musical project Methexis and the album “Suiciety” which I featured on in 2015. Nikitas will be joining me for part of my set, and will also be performing a support slot to promote his new album “Topos”, released later this year.
More guests to be announced soon.
Love and hugs,
That Joe Payne
