“The most brilliant music and poetry band I’ve seen in decades.”
Carol Ann Duffy - Poet Laureate


Poems, classic and obscure, are given a new voice in songs crafted by South London band LiTTLe MACHiNe: Walter Wray, Steve Halliwell and Chris Hardy. Acoustic instruments, strong melodies and watertight harmonies create songs that draw on a thousand years of poetry from the Medieval to the Metaphysicals, the Romantics to the modern. William Carlos Williams, Blake, Shakespeare, Carol Ann Duffy…all get the treatment. Poetry is the best words in the best order and LiTTLe MACHiNe have been just as careful in creating new music that can move the feet for words that move the soul͠.

Little Machine’s sophisticated way with poetry made me fall in love with old favourites and new ones all over again. They sing, strum, beat, get you tapping your feet, make you laugh and break your heart, every word sung clear as a bell. I swear the Bard himself has joined this band.” 

Gillian Clarke - National Poet of Wales
