Cheshire-based master Blues and Rock guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick is delighted to premiere the video for ‘Brave New World’ — arguably the most guitar-showcasing track on his storming 12-track solo album ‘Ballad of a Prodigal Son’.Ji
m has earned his stripes and more both as a songwriter and as a skilled, high-octane yet eloquent guitarist. Best-known as the lead guitarist of the legendary British classic rock band FM, with whom he’s served since 2008, Jim has also worked with many other major names, several of whom guest on his blues-rock solo album.
‘Ballad of a Prodigal Son’ was Jim’s first solo album for 14 years (given that he released his solo debut ‘Changed Priorities’ way back in 2006). This time around, his new material is different in tone and balance: deep steeped in rock and blues and burning with both, yet the album also showcases Jim’s well-honed and storied skills as a songwriter.
“’Ballad of a Prodigal Son’ is a blues-rock outing with some songs co-written with friends and some fine contributions from many of my colleagues,” says Jim, “There’s a whole host of well-known guests playing and contributing to the album which is very rocky, bluesy and with LOTS of guitar playing! I’m hoping that my fans and audience will love it.”
King King have to move the release date of their new album ‘Maverick’ to Friday 27 November 2020. To mark the previous release date of their new album, King King release their third single “Dance Together” (radio edit) on Friday 6 November 2020 via Channel 9 Music – King King’s new independent label. The new single will be sent as instant grat track to everybody who pre-ordered the album. The 10-track album, released on CD, vinyl, and various bundles, is available for pre-order from www.kingking.co.uk.
Statement from King King: “It is with a heavy heart that we as King King, have to let you know we have had a slight issue in regards to the artwork for the album which means that it has had to be recalled in order for this to be fixed. We feel we have the best fans in the world and hope you will understand that this is disappointing and frustrating for us too but, we promise you the best album we have ever made.
Take care and be safe from all at team King King!”
“Maverick” follows 2017’s critically acclaimed album “Exile & Grace” and includes the new line-up featuring Alan Nimmo (vocals/guitar), Stevie Nimmo (guitar), Jonny Dyke (organ/piano), Zander Greenshields (bass) and Andrew Scott (drums).
Now For Something Humorous and Different – do watch until the end of the video!
The exquisite new duo Sunny Bones have released their debut single ‘Be Cool’. Introducing their unique blend of dream pop, Americana and indie, the song examines self-worth and identity with seductive vocals and a healthy dose of slide guitar.
Humorously embracing the theme of being comfortable in oneself, the video celebrates the oddities of humankind while nodding to the band’s musical influences in the US. With the beautiful juxtaposition of a mundane existence in Norfolk lived in a riot of Cirque du Soleil costuming, it captures atmospheric bike rides in suburbia, building sandcastles on the beach and swapping fine dining for the local chippy.
Regarding ‘Be Cool’ singer Helen Anderson says, “‘Be Cool’ is about a time in my life where someone close to me had a constant battle of being themselves, changing in front of others to fit social situations and desperately trying to please. The resolution would have been for them to know that’s what they never needed to do.”
