Best served live in 30-minute intervals or on record as single tracks, EPs or albums.
Silent Cities is the music project of singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Simon Madison. Simon won the Judges’ Award at the Liverpool Acoustic View Two Songwriting Challenge with his song Brother of Fur. His EP Dreams is available on a ‘name your price’ basis from the Lost at Sea Records bandcamp page.

Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was founded by Graham Holland in April 2008 as a central resource for the vibrant and exciting acoustic music scene in Liverpool and the Greater Merseyside area. The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
