Duke Garwood Announces February UK Tour (One Beat PR News)



The cat is well and truly out of the bag on Duke Garwood and his soulful, stripped-bare sound, thanks to the release of his fifth album Heavy Love last year, his first for Heavenly Recordings. Thrusting Garwood from south London’s unlikely bluesman into the spotlight he so thoroughly deserves, the word looks set to continue to spread with a new tour and album number six readied for release in February 2017.

Old soul-meets-saint, Duke’s life story is one of the character-building twists and turns known only by the greatest artists and vagabonds. As the leading character in a tale where Mexican gangs forced tequila down his throat, or in rooms where some of the world’s biggest rock stars would gather, Duke’s cross-continental travels extend from Thailand’s bar scene, the mean streets of Paris, Hackney’s squatlands, nearly dying upon returning from Cuba due to “some serious jungle disease”, Moroccan hash bars, a music-filled bolthole on Brixton Hill, to Josh Homme’s Pink Duck studio in Los Angeles.

An artist who has walked his own distinct path for over 20 years and counts Josh T. Pearson, Tinariwen, Mark Lanegan, Kurt Vile, and Savages’ Jehnny Beth as fans and collaborators, Garwood will bring his unique “mad blues” groove to the following venues early next year.

Live dates:
9th February – Bodega, Nottingham
10th February – King Tut’s, Glasgow
11th February – Headrow House, Leeds
12th February – The Deaf Institute, Manchester
14th February – Komedia, Brighton
15th February – The Louisiana, Bristol
16th February – Oslo, London

“there is a new and penetrating heat haze to these reverberating songs” The Observer

“Imagine the healing music that could be made if you mixed Mark Lanegan’s growling blues with JJ Cale’s hypnotic guitar shuffle. That’s what Garwood does” The Sunday Times
