Danny Wilson, having conquered 2013 with the release of Danny & The Champions Of The World’s hugely praised new record Stay True (“a gold standard album for UK Americana” – Q), has been wowing the crowds with his incredible new songs. A number of people claiming these shows having been amongst the top gigs they’d ever witnessed. Numerous end of year lists and polls echoed these thoughts, with the Americana UK reader’s poll crowning The Champs Best Band Of 2013, No.2 Album Of The Year and the Best Live Band of 2013.
Meanwhile, Peter Bruntnell (“one of Britain’s finest and most overlooked songwriters” – The Line Of Best Fit) released his Retrospective record back in the summer – a collection of songs from his outstanding back catalogue of albums, alongside a new version of Played Out, featuring Rumor.
Neil Halstead, previously known for his bands Slowdive and Mojave 3, following two solo records released through 4AD and then Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records label, has most recently released an album as a member of Black Hearted Brother. Neil’ll fit in perfectly, being another “one of Britain’s greatest songwriters” (Time Out).
