    My Dancing Heart is the workings of a man dedicated to the lyric, melody and honesty of his songwriting.

    Steven Thompson aka Blabbermouth has been writing and performing his unique brand of acoustica for 10 years; his first band "Herman" swiftly led him towards his second adventure "Apart from the Soul" where the originality of his songwriting and performance really began to evolve.

    About 5 years ago he quit the band and began his musical career as solo act Blabbermouth; it was an instant hit with the London venues he had previously been playing as "AFTS" and Troubadour Venue Manager Amanda Glyn wrote this about him.

    "Original, refreshing, off-kilter and talented Blabbbermouth's set is by turns hilarious, anthemic, surreal and delightful. Day to day observations are dished up with deadpan humour, and philosophical issues revamped so that even the prospect of your own death seems like a good laugh. If Eddie Izzard could sing and play guitar this is what you might expect."

    Blabbermouth's songwriting had developed into a sophisticated, amusing and poignant anti-folk style; reminiscent of artists like Kevin Coyne and Morrissey his humorous songs about death, love and funerals were attracting audiences tired of the usual "one man and his guitar" scenario.

    Soon enough Blabbermouth had formed a new band to play live with; a modest backline of Bass and Percussion coupled with Blabbermouth alternating between Banjo and Guitar, the band and his songwriting had developed into a more emotionally diverse mix of Folk, Country and Soul. Now Blabbermouth presents his first "proper" album; the very best songs sieved from earlier home recordings. Produced with Ian Shaw who has worked with bands like Primal Scream and Snuff, these tracks take you to the depths of Blabbermouth's mind and to the centre of his heart.

    "the voice of an angel.. an original musical experience you'll not forget in a hurry."

    "Genuinely beautiful moments such as the aching love song Genevieve and the powerful title track pepper the album with real depth."
    JTR, Properganda

    "His wicked approach to death, including his own, is the most prominent (and...the dark sentiments are tempered with humour)."
    Grem Delvin, Living Tradition

    "Idiosyncratic lyrics and clever tunes...a very impressive debut"
    Dai Jeffries, Rock'N'Reel

    "Clear vocals, well written and sung...good sympathetic balances and nicely produced throughout"
    Paul Brett, Music Maker
