Tupelo Lime, is an alt-country poet and musician and his band of Mayhem. Experiencing life first hand, influenced and inspired by the lives and communities of those met along the way each one helping to define and shape the Tupelo Lime journey.
The decades of the 70’s and 80’s, provided opportunities to absorb influences from the San Francisco punk scene, Los Angeles , Laurel Canyon, and the Trinity Mountain region of California, surrounded by the acoustic musical blends of Country, Folk, country rock and and Blues. The purity of real music being made by real people, became the pursuit and driving force for the musical tours throughout Europe and the UK.
The wilted back roads of America and Europe, provided the backdrop for wanderers who have finally found a place on the Suffolk/Norfolk borderlands using poetry and music to express the undelaying emotions complementing the snap shots from global tales and adventures.
The Tupelo Lime sound is as wide and varied as the journeys that have been made, portraying traditional elements of Blues and Country Southern Rock, Folk, Blue Grass and Jazz.Songs based on affliction and addiction, loss, spiritual belief, hardship, joy, love and death.
