Here is a small selection of audio clips. You can hear the varied work we do at Attic Attack.
Delonzo Gee is a Bristol singer/songwriter and as a recording artist he has covered a wide range of genres. This song was arranged and recorded for him at Attic Attack by Pete Rowley to coincide with the Olympics in London.
Run Mr.Bolt came about after seeing Usain Bolt breaking all those records. Delonzo says, “The man inspired me by his brilliance and I feel he still has more to give. Someone said to me the song reminded them of being in the garden on a summer’s day. My aspiration for this song is to hear it being sung in the stadium when Usain Bolt is breaking another record. The race is over and every one starts singing Run Mr.Bolt”.
Delonzo is actively fundraising for the charity Action For Blind People.

The popular West Country entertainer Fred Wedlock sadly passed away in early 2010. Fred was a regular visitor to Attic Attack, and we recorded his last album Festive Fred. His friend, Aj Webber wrote a song in tribute and sung it at Fred’s funeral, and such was the interest that it was decided to release it as a single. We recorded the song with Aj plus Kit Morgan on guitar & bass and Ali Nourse on violin. Sales will raise money for Bath Cancer Support Group and other local charities.
