Following his recent UK April and May UK tour, Dan Patlansky will be Joanne Shaw Taylor’s special guest on her November 2017 UK Tour. The news follows Dan’s latest single, ‘Heartbeat‘ which is currently being played on Planet Rock, and is taken from Dan’s critically acclaimed studio album ‘Introvertigo‘.
The November 2017 UK tour supporting Joanne Shaw Taylor, follows his recent April and May UK tour with special guest Ash Wilson. Prior to that, Patlansky toured the UK in 2016 as King King’s special guest, and also toured the UK and Europe in 2015 as Joe Satriani’s special guest.
Celebrated South African guitarist and vocalist Dan Patlansky will release his highly anticipated new single ‘Sonnova Faith‘ on Monday 10th April to coincide with his upcoming April / May UK tour with special guest Ash Wilson.
The new single is taken from Patlansky’s current album Introvertigo which was recently voted the #1 Blues Rock Album of 2016 by the Blues Rock Review. This marks the second time Patlansky has been voted #1 in Blues Rock Reviews’ Top 20 Albums Polls. The first time was in 2014 with his previous studio album Dear Silence Thieves which featured the rock radio singles ‘Backbite‘ and ‘Fetch Your Spade‘. This marks Dan’s first UK tour since he supported King King in 2016, and Joe Satriani’s 2015 Shockwave UK/European tour.
Patlansky’s special guest is Lincolnshire-based singer-songwriter Ash Wilson, who releases his debut album Broken Machine on April 21st, and is hailed as one of the UK’s most exciting new guitarist and singer-songwriters around.
Dan Patlansky – April / May 2017 UK Tour With Special Guest Ash Wilson
I’ll start this review by saying I hadn’t actually heard of Ash Wilson until a promo copy of ‘Broken Machine‘ dropped through the letterbox. However, I’m more then a little pleased that this particular CD landed on the mat.
Talk about an album that ticks many boxes when it comes to my own particular tastes in music. From the outset your greeted with a four and a half minute onslaught of superior blues rock in the shape and form of ‘Show Me How To Love You‘. A real foot stomper of a track that had me reaching for the volume to crank it up!
Ash is certainly no slouch when it comes to twanging on that guitar with vigor, but tracks like ‘Word Of A Woman‘ show that he can lay down a rich, multi layered song filled with feeling and emotion. Reading the accompanying notes, I saw who the musicians were filling the rest of the positions, and boy has Ash got a band behind him. With drummer Phil Wilson and bassist Roger Innis from Laurence Jones’ band and Bob Fridzema of King King on Keyboards, there is a solid bedrock to the album.
Thankfully the production on ‘Broken Machine‘ helps etch out the finer points of the music without falling into the trap of bloated and booming which is all so often the norm these days.
Not only would I strongly suggest you grab yourself a copy of this album when it’s released in a couple of months, but I’d also suggest you catch Ash Wilson on tour with Dan Patlansky in March and April.
All in all it just goes to show the future of blues & blues rock is looking very rosy indeed…
Celebrated South African blues rock guitarist Dan Patlansky returns to the UK for his April / May 2017 UK Tour with special guest Ash Wilson. This will be the first tour Patlansky will undertake following his support slot on King King’s 2016 UK tour, and Joe Satriani’s 2015 UK and European tour.
The UK tour follows Patlansky’s recent accolade when his current album Intovertigo was voted the #1 Blues Rock Album of 2016 by the Blues Rock Review. This marks the second time Patlansky has been voted #1 in Blues Rock Reviews’ Top 20 Albums. The first time was in 2014 with his previous studio album Dear Silence Thieves which featured the rock radio favourites Backbite and Fetch Your Spade.
Patlansky’s special guest is the Lincolnshire-based singer-songwriter Ash Wilson. Hailed as one of the UK’s most exciting and distinctive new vocalists, guitarists and songwriters in the British contemporary blues scene, Wilson’s debut album, Broken Machine,will be released 21st April and features bassist Roger Inniss (Chaka Khan, ex-Laurence Jones), keyboardist Bob Fridzema (King King), and guitarist Jesse Davey (The Hoax).
Wilson Brothers Music in association with Cadiz Music Distribution are pleased to announce the release of singer-songwriter and guitarist Ash Wilson’s debut album ‘Broken Machine’ on Friday 21st April 2017. The album can be pre-ordered form Amazon and iTunes.
Lincolnshire’s Ash Wilson is one of England’s most distinctive vocalists, guitarists and songwriters in blues music today. The debut album is a watershed achievement for Wilson, both in terms of the many musical styles in the tracks, which begin and end with the blues at its core.
The album is maybe best described by multi award-winning UK Blues Hall Of Fame inductee Wayne Proctor, (King King, Ben Poole, Stevie Nimmo), as “A fine record that grooves, rocks, twists and turns. You’re all gonna love it! Now grab a cuppa, press play and turn it up! LOUD!!”
