SHORT-CHANGED BY YOUTUBE CHANGES

TV Static

Let’s be real here – we do not and never have made any money from our YouTube channel (nor did we ever expect to). CD Baby have always handled our YouTube monetization, such that it is (and we are literally talking pennies here).

DARK, LOUNGEY SWAGGER

Braver than Fiction at West Street Live by Ben Ponsford

Here we are then – presenting (possibly) the most un-Valentine’s Day blog post you could possibly imagine. No hearts, no cherubic Cupids, no sappy sentiments, no apologies; we are to Valentine’s Day what Scrooge is to Christmas.

WE ARE [A]LIVE!

It has been over a year since Braver than Fiction played their last gig and although the band have not been completely idle during that time, their rumoured return to the live circuit is eagerly anticipated.
