Dance Whilst The Sky Crashes Down

Now if you like your music with passion, originality than look no further than  Jason Webley. He started out as a street performer and now tours all over the world, his fan base ranging from Russia to Mexico.  Having seen him live three times now I can assure you he is one of the most entertaining and charismatic performers I have ever seen and if you ever get a chance to see him play take it, as he is taking a long break at the end of this year. His music is a combination of folk/punk/experimental/gypsy his lyrics have a hint of macabre humour to them but are beautiful. He plays the accordion, piano and a vodka bottle full of coins (trust me it works). He is a fascinating musician who for five years 'died' which sometimes involved him being stripped,shaved and carted off in a hearse so he could be 'reborn' six months later, but apparently he has stopped doing this now. He produces all of his own albums and artwork and he lives on a houseboat how can you not be fascinated? 

Here he is performing 'Dance Whilst The Sky Crashes Down' a song that you can dance to about the apocalypse.
