Piers Faccini's first band, Charley Marlowe, came out of a performance poetry project with Francesca Beard, and when that came to an end in 2001, he threw himself into his painting, and became a darling of the gallery world. However, music and songwriting is still very much part of his oeuvre, and as he told FUV's Claudia Marshall his new album, Two Grains of Sand, is heavily influenced by his recent spate of traveling, and his recent experiences with the music of South Africa.
