Support: Withered Hand
Loose Music artists & stars of American Epic, these four LA based musicians are kicking up a storm over in the US for their incredible live shows, on stage persona, solid songwriting and top-notch musicianship. Creating a refreshingly contemporary sound with all the hallmarks of the musical greats, echoes of Springsteen, Guthrie and Chuck Berry. These guys are so damn good, they are going to be a huge Rock n Roll band!
“From the first rolling guitar notes, carrying sadness and defiance like dust, this sweeps me up: I want to know everything about where that feeling came from, and where it’s going.” – Greil Marcus, Pitchfork
“Genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music for this century. And it sounds even better this century.” – T Bone Burnett
Withered Hand is the songwriting output of Dan Willson. A cult figure in the Scottish music scene since 2009. He has released two widely acclaimed albums, New Gods (2014) and Good News (2009) and several lo-fi Eps. We have been longtime admires of Dan’s beautifully constructed lyrical frameworks and killer melodies which have lead King Creosote to call him “The UK’s best lyricist”.
