Boothby Graffoe ‘NOMAD'  

Following on from the critical success of his previous two CD albums, Mr Graffoe is putting together a brand new CD album, titled Nomad, to accompany his forthcoming UK tour, Nomad. No Sane Either, and he would like your help to do it.

Featuring the talents of Jimmy Melophonic, Omid Djalili, Nick Pynn and Kevin Hearn from The Barenaked Ladies.

Boothby still dislikes name-droppers and people who use celebrity connections to promote themselves in an unrealistic way.

‘Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.’ - Stewart Lee

‘If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.’ - Omid Djalili

What the press have to say:

‘In my opinion Boothby Graffoe is one of the finest singer-songwriters in the world today.’ - Richard Thompson (Boothby’s’ got this one on tape.)

‘Buy two copies of his CD because you'll want to share but you won’t want to give it away.’ The Scotsman

‘Should have his own TV show. He writes great gags, improvises as well as anyone, plays the guitar and sings songs that are both beautiful and funny.’ The Guardian

‘Rare among singer-songwriters in that he’s not intensively twee and annoying.The Sunday Times, Culture Section (must sees + the critical list)

‘Daftness deftly combined with clear-headed comic thinking. Irresistible.’ Time Out

‘This is inspired’ The Times

Risks and challenges

For you, dear beloved pledger, there are no risks, you will be supplied with what has been promised, a brand new Boothby Graffoe music album, stuffed with songs that are both funny and moving, thoughtful, and full of hope.

Produced with tender loving care by the incomparable Jim Dude.

Choose your option, it's up to you, but, it had to be said, we think the £20 pledge is a belter of a deal! allowing you to become a Graffoe afficiando for just a Lady Godiva short of a Pony. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is not to sing along joyously to every lovely little tune.
