What happens when you tumble out of the closet and find yourself trying to work out exactly where you are on the gender and sexuality spectrum?

Rainbow Heart, the new musical show from The Bleeding Obvious endeavours to describe the experience through songs and tales of joy, grief, happiness, loss and defiance.

Touring again in 2018, it's been referred to as "hilarious", "thoughtful" and "astounding". Featuring tracks from her debut album as well as new tunes, let The Bleeding Obvious take you on a rollercoaster rainbow ride.

Meet The Family!

I'm very privileged to be performing alongside two fabulous spoken-word artists at many of the tour dates.

Helen Rhodes (The Thinking Chimp)

Dark, surreal, strange, insightful, edgy, with a squeeze of sarcasm and a large squirt of humour. Words about human beings, the odd and the oooh, life, real and unreal. Words about death, experientially and theoretically. Sometimes things rhyme, even when they’re not meant to at the time. Her work '52 Stories' was released in 2018 and can be ordered here.


Geneviève L Walsh

Yorkshire-raised Londoner and writer of punk-song length poems about alienation, inebriation, pop music, and losers finding each other. She founded and currently hosts/coordinates Spoken Weird, is co-host of Stirred, is a member of the Afflecks Creatives team and was the first female core member of A Firm of Poets. Her début solo collection, The Dance of a Thousand Losers [Flapjack Press], was released in 2017.
