Babbles’ music explores the spaces in between; they pause, reflect, laugh, yearn, rage and return to share an enriched vision; open eyed.; open mouthed, embracing a renewed and vibrant attitude to life. Taking you upwards and sideways with rhythms and soundscapes, wild guitars and poetic lyrics, Babble constantly search for the divine in their music.
The basic bones of Babble are; Rob Williams (guitars/synthesis) and Karen Langley (lyrics and vocals/vocal arrangements). Joined by a shared interest in the healing force of music and sound, Babble is a moveable feast that can include a variety of musicians at performances.
Both Rob and Karen have worked with many bands/musicians and theatrical groups spanning long careers. “Music is the conversation, the one we can have at the Universal level – everyone can join in” says Karen. Robs distinctive guitar sound and style folds around Karen’s’ evocative vocals to produce the powerful and original Babble sound.
BABBLE HAVE RECENTLY SIGNED A RECORD/DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH AMERICAN COMPANY MUSIK&FILM. A NEW ALBUM “SHAPE OF THE FLUX” RELEASED WORLWIDE AND AVAILABLE ON ALL MAJOR DIGITAL PLATFORMS
“Very rarely do I find music as completely original, rhythmically sophisticated, beautifully played and exactly arranged as the music of Babble. Babble's highly original electro/acoustic style of music defies categorization. I found it very engaging and thoroughly enjoyable - coming from a grumpy music snob such as myself that's saying quite a lot.”"
Terry Nails (VP A&R, Ozzy Osbourne), SBWire (Jun 28, 2012)
BABBLE in conjunction with artist JOHN TAYLOR are also working on the Bread and Circuses project - a music/art collaboration:
Uk art band BABBLE and artist John Taylor have collaborated on the Bread and Circuses project as their response to the challenges unfolding as sleepers begin to awaken and see the world through new eyes….
Art, Music, words and beauty are shining through the cracks of reality, giving power back to those willing to reject manufactured culture and apathy.
Bread and circuses is a reflection of those changes – each song takes an aspect of the struggle to be an authentic individual and explores it with hypnotic music, rich language and song plus the powerful, original artwork of john taylor.
Premiered at the Midlands Art Centre as part of the Birmingham arts festival, the bread and circuses travelling show will be touring in 2013. Come and take a few bites of the bread; as for those who ask for more….. learn to bite the hand that feeds you…
