Brothers Osborne have announced the details of their second studio album, the follow-up to their Pawn Shop debut, now certified gold in the US.

Titled Port Saint Joe and featuring 10 new tracks including lead single ‘Shoot Me Straight’, this release from the Nashville-based duo was recorded away from the sometimes sterile environs of the studio, in a Florida beach house in the town of Port Saint Joe – a beach house stacked with cool equipment and the desire to craft music built on energy and vibe.

“‘Port Saint Joe’ is a sonic representation of who we’ve become, not only as a band but as people,” says guitarist John Osborne. “Every show we’ve ever played together is on this record. Every song we’ve ever written and every mile we’ve ever ridden has led to the making of this record. Imperfections and all.”

Vocalist/guitarist TJ adds, “We shacked up for two weeks to make an unabashed record that would reflect who we are in every way, and in the process, we had the most enjoyable and memorable recording experience of our lives.”

The full track-listing of Port Saint Joe is as follows:

1. Slow Your Roll
2. Shoot Me Straight
3. I Don’t Remember Me (Before You)
4. Weed, Whiskey and Willie
5. Tequila Again
6. A Couple Wrongs Makin’ It Alright
7. Pushing Up Daisies (Love Alive)
8. Drank Like Hank
9. A Little Bit Trouble
10. While You Still Can

“The UK has become one of our favourite places to play,” exclaims John Osborne. “We’re thrilled to be doing our first ever headline tour there in May. Can’t wait!”

Feeling Exhilarated at last a King King Live Album




Feeling Exhilarated at last a King King Live Album. We have waited, was it worth the wait… Yes, It was and we can shout across the land at last we can have on tap that Live magic that is King King.

Live, has captured everything a King King gig has to offer. We have the Alan Nimmo wit and the crowd’s warm heartfelt appreciation with ovations and cheers and then the silence of a mass of people listening intently. Recorded on the 14th May 2016 at Glasgow O2 ABC, in front of a home crowd with that added energy of a homecoming for Alan.

King King always exhilarates, they are a unit of musicians who build on each other’s emotional energy making as Aristotle said “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts!”

Opening the twelve track album with Lose Control, which is a certainty with King King’s music; this is a jump up and down number that will raise the temperature at any venue. Glasgow is on fine form as Alan thanks the audience before launching into a Fabulous Thunderbirds number that is always sublime when it receives the King King treatment Wait On Time is no different tonight. The guitar from Alan weeps and pulls at the rock n roll vibe that Wayne picks up with a clash of the cymbal as the guitar beguiles you and pulls you in to a Nimmo musical hug.

Love. Alan, sings  “…all I have to do is close my eyes….” and instantly I am transported to the front of the crowded venue and see the kilt, Bob’s smile behind the keys, Lindsey’s cheeky grin and Wayne behind the drums with stick raised with a purpose you can actually  smell and feel the atmosphere that is a King King live show.


Every track is a winner there are no favourites they all send that ecstatic musical shiver down the spine but as ever You Stopped The Rain dedicated to his brother Stevie and Frankie Millers, Jealousy raises hairs on my arms and I hold by breath so that every nuance of the numbers are not missed. Heavenly!

The tempo ebbs and flows  and as ever King King send you a little bit Crazy, as they pull out all the stops  to entertain with top-notch music.  Closing with Let Love In, once again we have entered their world they thank us for coming we thank them once again for keeping music fun and live.  The set list takes on a stroll from their current award-winning studio album Reaching For The Light, dipping into the back catalogue of both Standing In the Shadows and Take My Hand.


If you have been to a King King gig this is the whole event boxed and tied in tartan ribbon for you to enjoy again and again as we wait for the next tour to begin.  For a  glorious eighty-four minutes reality is suspended and you are transported into the land of rock-blues wow! Land with King King Live!

Says King King’s lead singer and guitarist, Alan Nimmo, “We are excited about ‘King King Live’ because it’s the first time we’ve ever released a live album.  It’s a great testament to how our audiences drive us on to perform to the best of our abilities. The audience reaction to the live performances is amazing.  This release couldn’t have been possible without them.”
