Rum Thief Short Info

Rum Thief is a project started by Jot Green, a solo recording artist from Manchester. He learnt his bandcraft playing as a drummer in various cover and originals bands for over ten years until he decided that the time was right to record some songs of his own. Booking himself into the highly-regarded Airtight Studios in Chorlton, Manchester, he recorded five original songs for his debut EP, Clouded Mind.

This is where Jot’s many musical talents came into play – in addition to singing his own songs, he performed all the drums, guitar, bass and backing vocals himself throughout the recording sessions.

Taken as a debut, even now a few years after its first release, the style and content in Clouded Mind feels like a fresh wave of modern Britpop but which still evokes the Mancunian 80s where the genre was born as well as encompassing and modernising much of the feel of the music from the guitar-led styles of the 60’s.

Since recording Clouded Mind, Jot has become a stage regular on the northern circuit. His music has evolved with a rockier style, mature but still maintaining the guitar-lickin’ roots of an England where luck and fortune had to be forcibly manufactured and earnt.
