With their second album, 'The Reconciliation', about to be released in the autumn, we are so excited to welcome this superb 7-piece back The Live Room after their triumphant performance in October 2012. The reaction and feedback from the audience was so enthusiastic that it was inevitable that the band would return. If you missed them last time, do yourself a big favour and come along to see one of the great UK rocking country bands of all time. The video for their lates single, a tribute to the late, great George Jones, recorded before he passed away, is below.
King, a mainstay of the singer-songwriter & Americana scene for the past 20 years, has released 15 albums - solo, and with his alt.country pioneering band The Good Sons. He has collaborated with the likes of Chris Hillman, Ron Sexsmith, Jakie Leven and the great Townes Van Zandt, and is widely acknowledged as one of our finest songwriters.
Lou Dalgleish is the honey-voiced former dancer and actress turned singer songwriter who has released 4 stunning solo albums, including the much heralded Live at Ronnie Scotts. and has worked with the likes of Elvis Costello, The Brodsky Quartet amongst many others.
Together they have crafted an album of pure, honest, country duets, that evoke and honour the great duos of the past... the likes of Johnny Cash & June Carter, Dolly Parton & Porter Wagoner, and of course, George Jones & Tammy Wynette. Thirteen brand new songs, many sounding like long lost classics from a by-gone Nashville era. Songs of love and loss, betrayal and separation, bitterness and acrimony, but not without a hint of irony!
Featuring the likes of the great Martin Belmont (Graham Parker & The Rumour, Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Ducks Deluxe) on guitar; Jim Russell (Scotty Moore, James Burton, Bob Geldof) on drums; Kevin Foster (Jackie Leven, Doll By Doll, Ducks Deluxe) on bass; and Alan Cook (The Charlatans, Chris Hillman) on pedal steel, this is one of the all time great British band line-ups.
‘Simply wonderful’ - UnCut ****4/5
‘This is a great album’ - The Guardian
‘it was theatre, it was country music, it was rock 'n' roll. King and Dalgleish have re-invented the country duet - the mingling of these 2 voices is heavenly’ - Maverick
