Born into a musical family (his father is singer Chip Hawkes of The Tremeloes), Chesney’s own career began at 19, when he appeared as the title character in the film Buddy’s Song alongside Roger Daltrey. In March 1991, he released his biggest single The One And Only, from the film’s soundtrack spent five weeks at Number 1. It has become part of the soundtrack of a generation, and still features on radio playlists, compilations and in DJ sets everywhere.

This is a chance to spend an evening with Chesney Hawkes the songwriter, as he leads you through his musical journey, performing his own songs, his collaborations with other artists and a few of his personal favourites. Joining Chesney on this mini-tour are Percival Elliott, a musical duo from the south coast of England whose sound echoes Parachutes, Grace and Abbey Road. Olly Hite and Samuel Carter-Brazier, once musical strangers, fashioned together by antiques, formed Percival Elliott with the belief that true friends can create something beautiful. Between them they have captivated audiences throughout LA, Hollywood and across the UK with their neo-nostalgic melodies blending the dreamy sounds of Coldplay, Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake with the hard rock edge of Radiohead, John Mayer and Porcupine Tree. Opening the shows, is Anthony Starble, whose music embodies a sense of realism and honesty.
