We’ve only gone and signed the biggest real country star in waiting - STURGILL SIMPSON!! Watch out for his album in early 2014. As Loose Tom’s prone to reminding us, “if it ain’t country it ain’t shit!”
Now here’s a video of our guy Sturgill doing his thing in a room made of beer. Having seen that, we assume you’ll be dying to see him live. Well good news folks!

Three of the UK’s top singer-songwriters will be performing together at a handful of intimate venues. Our very own Danny George Wilson and Peter Bruntnell will assume their positions next to the equally unmissable Neil Halstead.
Danny, having released his latest, hugely praised record “Stay True” with his Champions Of The World back in September, has since been wowing the crowds with his incredible new songs, with a number of people claiming these shows to have been amongst the top gigs they’d ever witnessed. How about that.
Meanwhile, Peter Bruntnell (“one of Britain’s finest and most overlooked songwriters” – The Line Of Best Fit) released his Retrospective album 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).
