THIS SHOW IS AT:THE OLD COLD STORE / ( entrance through the Vat and Fiddle pub). 12 Queensbridge Road, Nottingham NG2 1NB

Jesse Malin — whom the London Times says “writes vivid songs with killer tunes and sings them with scary conviction” — and Lucinda Williams — the southern troubadour once named “America’s best songwriter” by Time magazine — first met in the early 2000s at a jazz club in NYC’s West Village. In a joint 2017 Rolling Stone interview, the two discussed their “shared love of miscreants, misfits, the misunderstood and the mysteries of everyday lives binds them across the Mason-Dixon line.”

"From the early frontier days of hardcore in New York to all the punk rock and singer/songwriter touring, it's all been about survival and reinvention, about finding a way to get through. I wanted to make an open sounding record with the space to tell these stories. I like to write about characters and people I meet along the way. The dreamers, schemers, hustlers, romantics, lovers, leavers and believers."

Sunset Kids first took shape at The Hollywood Bowl when Jesse accepted Lucinda Williams' invite to see her open what turned out to be the final concert by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. During that same L.A. visit, the idea of Lucinda taking the producer's chair on Jesse's next record came about. After reflecting on his life while walking the streets of London, jamming riffs in an East Side basement, and writing songs in Florida hotel rooms while visiting his ailing father, the ambitious 14-song album was recorded on both coasts between the artists' touring schedules. "playing music is something I need to do. Singing under those hot lights every night is true exorcism. We get to put together this pirate ship of characters and go around the world making trouble."

DON DILEGO

Spending three years writing, recording, and touring after the release of his first two albums to successful reviews, Don released “Photographs of 1971” this past year. An ode to both his family and the grand themes of the role family plays in life, he was inspired by a box of old tattered photographs from the 70’s that had been packed deep in a closet for years. Yellowing and bordered and date-stamped, these photos sparked a creative streak that Don had been looking for after the road-themes and wanderlust of “The Lonestar Hitchhiker” and “Lonestar Companion.”

THIS SHOW HAS BEEN MOVED AND WILL NOW TAKE PLACE AT: THE RUNNING HORSE, 16 Alfreton Rd, Nottingham NG7 3NG Tel:07770 226926 www.runinghorsenottingham.co.uk

The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town.

Channelling the sounds of The Byrds, Big Star and The Flying Burrito Brothers, as well as hints of Mojave 3 and The Allah Las, The Hanging Stars mainline the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes.

The band will be releasing their third album, A New Kind Of Sky, in February 2020, which follows their critically acclaimed debut Over The Silvery Lake in 2016. The album received plaudits from broadsheets such as The Times and The Guardian, as well as Uncut and Q. They picked up a good amount of support at 6 Music and “The House on the Hill” scored a much-coveted 10/10 by John Robb on Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable.

They've shared the stage with Teenage Fanclub, The Clientele, Wolf People, The Long Ryders, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and GospelbeacH, as well as playing festivals such as Liverpool’s International Festival of Psychedelia, Red Rooster, Ramblin' Roots and Americana Fest and the Loose stage at The Long Road Festival.

She is smarter, sharper, and maybe even more melodic than she was way back when, when mod housewives kept diaries and danced with Joey Ramone.”

The Old Guys, Amy Rigby's first solo album in a dozen years, measures the weight of heroes, home; family, friends and time. Philip Roth and Bob Dylan, CD/cassette players, touring, the wisdom of age and Walter White, groupies, Robert Altman, egg creams and mentors are paid tribute. Twelve songs written unmistakably by Amy and recorded by Wreckless Eric in upstate New York, The Old Guys is the sound of a good girl grown up, never giving up.

Amy Rigby has made a life out of writing and singing about life. With bands Last Roundup and the Shams in eighties NYC East Village to her solo debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife out of nineties Williamsburg; through a songwriting career in 2000s Nashville and during the past decade with duo partner Wreckless Eric, she’s released records on visionary independent labels Rounder, Matador, Signature Sounds and reborn Stiff Records as well as her and Eric’s own Southern Domestic Recordings. For the last twenty years she has toured the US, Canada, UK and Europe, appearing on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, World Cafe, Whad’Ya Know, All Things Considered, BBC Radio 6 Music’s Marc Riley Show and Mountain Stage. She lives with Wreckless Eric in the Hudson Valley. Her record “Dancing With Joey Ramone” is a staple of Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show, and kitchen sink anthem “Are We Ever Gonna Have Sex Again?” is played in cafes and bars around the country by real life mod housewives and husbands.

“Her whimsical, often autobiographical songs are masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.” — New York Times

"Makes you want to roar down the highway with the windows open and a finger on the repeat button." - Rolling Stone

From Nashville Eileen Rose & the Holy Wreck return to the UK for the first time in over five years and with a new album under their belt 'Eileen Rose - Muscle Shoals' which they just finished recording at the famed Southern Studio, it is destined to be a hands-down favourite for long term fans and the surprise of the year for those yet to discover Rose's extraordinary songcraft and astonishing voice.

Established in 1969 Muscle Shoals the "Hit Recording Capital of the World." where icons like The Rolling Stones, Linda Rondstadt, Dylan, Willie Nelson, The Staple Singers, The Allman Brothers recorded some of their most beloved songs. The instruments used on records like Brown Sugar, Wild Horses where there for Eileen to use.

Rose’s breakthrough album, 2000's Shine Like It Does, recorded with country-techno renegades Alabama 3 (responsible for the theme tune to The Sopranos) was released on Rough Trade Records. The newly minted solo artist had the music press reaching for the superlatives. And so it’s been for every Rose album to follow. These include Rose stand-outs Be Many Gone (2015), Luna Turista (2010), At Our Tables (2008), Come The Storm (2005) which Judy Collins personally offered to release in the US after seeing Rose on stage in Glasgow.

Her band The Holy Wreck, feature guitar master Rich Gilbert (Frank Black, Jack White) Chris Machlalan on bass, and Steve Latanation (Agent Orange, The Legendary Shack Shakers) on drums.

"SHE KEEPS you guessing, this Eileen. One moment she could be Chrissie Hynde staring you out in black leather, but elsewhere you're more inclined to peg her into the Gillian Welch school of roots revival." - MOJO

Years before Rolling Stone was praising Carson McHone's rule-breaking roots music, the Austin, Texas native played weeknights in local bars like The White Horse, keeping dancers dancing and drinkers drinking. With her 21st birthday still in the distance, McHone entertained late-night crowds bearing witness to the good times and bad decisions that fill a busy bar. It was a rare, raw education. In 2015, McHone released Goodluck Man which earned her a cover story in The Austin Chronicle as well as the support of local icons like Ray Wylie Hubbard, who said she "writes songs like her life depends on it." Then she hit the road, touring the U.S. (and beyond) with acts like Shakey Graves, Gary Clark, Jr., and Joe Pug. Her writing style widened and her music evolved.

Dark, driving and evocative, 2018's Carousel captures this period of remarkable growth, shining a light not only on McHone's honky-tonk roots, but on her development as a modern, alt-country storyteller. It features newly written songs and updated versions of tracks that first appeared on Goodluck Man, pushing traditional sounds and themes into a modern context.

Playing an instrumental role in the process was Mike McCarthy, the now Nashville based, award-winning producer behind albums for Spoon, Patty Griffin, and Heartless Bastards. McCarthy is well versed in country music but his work is definitely not defined by the genre, which made him the perfect candidate for McHone’s latest record.

McHone explains that Carousel embraces where she's come from and establishes where her musical interests are leading. “The art I’m making would be lacking if I were to stick to a specific genre. Carousel is more modern, which is where my interests lie these days, and where my writing is taking me. At the end of the day, it has to be the song that dictates.”

NATIVE HARROW

“- East Coast duo summons the spirit of bygone folk-soul - Singer and guitarist Devin Tuel resides in Upstate New York, though her spiritual home is California, specifically boho Laurel Canyon at the turn of the ‘70s. Alongside multi-instrumentalist Stephen Harms, Tuel records as Native Harrow, her wondrous voice evoking both Judee Sill and early Joni Mitchell at their most wistful, particularly on “Can’t Go On Like This” and “Hung Me Out To Dry”. The use of vintage gear adds weight to the sensory impression of another era, as the duo (plus co-producer Alex Hall) craft timeless folk-rooted confections and, on the organ-fired “Something You Have”, Muscle Shoals-like- Southern soul. ” — Rob Hughes, UNCUT Magazine September 2019 Print Issue

Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes have built their reputation on storytelling. Over the past eight years they have released four records, toured Europe and the USA multiple times, shared stages with Americana and country heavyweights and picked up a string of awards, including the Golden Guitar for ‘alt country album of the year’ with their landmark release Black Coffee.

But they’ve never told stories like the ones on new record ‘Some Girls (Quite) Like Country Music’. By far the band’s most ‘adult’ work, ‘Some Girls’ is a country record, but draws as heavily upon the influence of Leonard Cohen and Billy Bragg as it does Willie Nelson and Townes Van Zandt. it seems Lachlan and The Wildes have achieved a different sort of musical perfection – the kind that puts the listener in an emotional space from the first to the last bar. ‘Some Girls (Quite) Like Country Music’ is a ragged, poetic, alt-country gem.

“We really enjoyed leaving the dirt on” says Lachlan, “we didn’t want to round off the edges too much and we always chose the most meaningful take, which is almost never the most musically perfect”.

Tandy, were the vehicle of songwriter and frontman Mike Ferrio. The band went through a number of changing line-ups until eventually being disbanded after the death of multi-instrumentalist Drew Glackin in January 2008. Despite being feted by the music media and building up a small core of devotees, Tandy never made the breakthrough to bigger things. How they went under the radar for so long is something of a mystery. In reviewing their fourth album ‘Wide Open Spaces’ in 2001 No Depression wrote “For five years Tandy has been crafting some of the finest music you’ve probably never heard”.

Tandy’s self-titled debut album was released in 1997 on Tomato Records, the label set up by Townes Van Zandt’s manager Kevin Eggers. It disappeared without trace, but is an excellent debut and well worth seeking out. The follow-up in 1998 ‘Some Summers Day’ refined and improved the band’s roots-rock sound. However, it was with their 1999 release ‘Lichtenstein’s Oriole’ that Tandy reached their peak. The album is their masterpiece and to this day remains one of my favourite albums. If you are not familiar with it, I highly recommend that you check it out.

Deeply affected by Drew Glackin’s death, Ferrio disbanded Tandy in 2008. By then through line-up changes and more erratic output, Tandy had run its course. Mike Ferrio went on to form Good Luck Mountain, which gave him a new lease of life and a return to form. It’s an unfortunate fact of life that people don’t always get what they deserve. For me Mike Ferrio is a major talent.

JONATHAN SPOTTISWOODE

Jonathan Spottiswoode is a New York based musician, writer, and filmmaker. The son of an American singer and English clergyman, he was raised in London.

His short film "The Gentleman" has been shown at a number of film festivals and in regular rotation on the Independent Film Channel, but he is best known as the front man of the band Spottiswoode & His Enemies.

LOST IN THE CITY is our most ambitious song cycle to date. An emotional sucker punch. Tales of love and death in the Big Apple. Celebrating two decades together as a band, the music reflects the raw energy and sophistication of the city we’ve called home; a giddy brew of balladry, jazz, rock, blues, minimalism, you name it.

In addition to that Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Solomon Burke, Alejandro Escovedo and Heart have recorded his songs, along with a host of others.

THIS SHOW IS AT THE OLD COLD STORE. 12 Queensbridge Road, Nottingham NG2 1NB www.en-gb.facebook.com/

World-renowned six-string pioneer, Warner E. Hodges, continues to blaze trails with his signature brand of guitar driven rock.

Born in Wurtzburg, Germany, Warner cut his teeth on the music of his father, Edger, a serving U.S. Army officer, and his mom, Blanche, who both fronted a USO country music outfit on base. The Hodges family settled in Nashville TN upon returning to the states and Warner soon found himself playing drums in his parents’ band. The bolt of lightning that compelled him to switch to guitar hit at an AC/DC concert in 1973. By the end of the 70’s, the punk movement had invaded Music City U.S.A. and Hodges’ high octane approach to life and the guitar were a perfect match for the burgeoning DIY scene. These early sparks were about to catch and Warner’s legacy was about to begin. Fast forward to 1981.

“Help Me Warner Go!” Both words of warning and a battle cry, all in one. Signaling the spinning, smoking, spur-wearing Hodges to action in front of rabid fans of Jason & The Scorchers, the mold-breaking, original wild child of rock n roll aggression and country music roots. The WEH sound is the perfect volatile mixture of these juxtaposed musical brothers. Part Jimmy Page, part Don Rich, Warner blends the two like no other player in history, period! With 10 albums to their credit, The Scorchers are still turning on and inspiring a new generation of alt-country fans and artists. (p)Warner E. Hodges is a busy man these days. In 2009, he joined Dan Baird & Homemade Sin, has recorded six studio albums, including 2017’s Rollercoaster, and has relentlessly toured internationally with the former Georgia Satellite. Always searching for new creative roads to explore, Warner formed The Bluefields in 2011, an American rock group from Nashville, where he can stretch his imagination on instruments ranging from Les Paul’s to ukuleles! The band has recorded 3 well-received studio albums, including 2014’s Under High Cotton.

When Hodges hits the road in 2020, it’ll be a while before the dust clears. Warner will be bringing his latest albums Right Back Where I Started and Gunslinger to life for European fans with the Warner E. Hodges Band.

DIVIN ‘N’ CRYIN

Atlanta, Georgia based folk rock act, Drivin N Cryin, have spent most of their career on tour. In October 1985 Drivin N Cryin played their first show at Atlanta’s famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows, and amassed a rabid fan base in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene.

With a gold record, 10 full-length albums, and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still refuses to rest. In 2012, a documentary about the band, entitled Scarred but Smarter: Life n Times of Drivin' N’ Cryin’, was reduced. In 2015, a collection of 10 choice cuts from the band’s 4-EP “Songs” series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashville’s Plowboy Records. Additionally, the band was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame that same year. The band’s new full-length album, produced by Nashville’s Aaron Lee Tasjan and featuring Laur Joamets (former Sturgill Simpson band member)

“It’s hard to think of another singer who suggests Dolly Parton, Ann Peebles and Feist. She phrases intuitively, waiting on a word and then drawing it out, and turns good lyrics to oatmeal, adding strange new colours to vowels, making whole syllables vanish.” - The New York Times

Vancouver artist Frazey Ford is revered for her soulful voice, captivating live show, and immersive lyrical storytelling and is returning with her first new original music in five years with her new album U Kin B the Sun due out Feb 2020.

Frazey first became known to UK audiences within her role as a founding member of the beloved Canadian alt-folk band The Be Good Tanyas. The Be Good Tanyas have graced the stages of all the key Folk Festivals in Canada, the UK and many in Europe and as touring artists worked their way up to headlining at The Royal Albert Hall in London in 2006.

In 2010, Frazey Ford launched her solo career with her debut album Obadiah on Nettwerk Records. Obadiah garnered reviews in publications such as The New York Times and The Guardian. In October 2014 Frazey returned with her second Nettwerk released solo album, Indian Ocean - a lush album filled with songs about love, contrition and being bold. Frazey recorded this album in Memphis TN at the famed Royal Studios and as well in Vancouver at Afterlife Studios with producer John Raham taking on the role of co-producer alongside Frazey.

Part of what gives Indian Ocean its gilded edge is the work of Al Green’s band, The Hi Rhythm Section, the iconic architects of the famous singer's instrumental Memphis soul sound. Critics deemed Indian Ocean one of the top releases of 2014 calling it an acclaimed country soul gem inviting comparisons to Cat Powers The Greatest. Indian Ocean took Frazey and her band members, dubbed The Quiet Revolution, on repeated headlining tours in the UK, Europe, Australia and throughout the USA and Canada. Indian Ocean made the Polaris Prize long list, was voted #6 out of the top 100 albums of 2014 by The Sunday Times, London, UK and was nominated for a Juno Award. Frazey’s video for her song Done has over 1.5 million views on YouTube and was premiered on NPR’s First Look platform.

Frazey has been receiving rave reviews for her first single and video from this new album for her soulful activism anthem The Kids Are Having None of It.

“….the way Frazey Ford works as a singer and songwriter who can pack a wealth of heartbreak, forbearance and rapture into the smallest intimations, and even into the spaces in between them.” John Mulvey, UNCUT UK
