After releasing perhaps his best solo album since his 40s – ‘Time and Emotion‘ – last year, Robin Trower will play an exclusive UK concert at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on Tuesday 27th February.

The 72 year-old will be supported by the New York based blues vocalist Sari Schorr Trio featuring guitarist Ash Wilson and keyboardist Bob Fridzema (former King King).

Tickets for Robin Trower’s only UK show can be booked from the 24 HR Box Office: 08444 780 898 or booked from www.thegigcartel.com or the venue website – http://bit.ly/19KfXmW.

Says Robin Trower about ‘Time and Emotion, I can honestly say I don’t know when I have been happier with an album. I feel Time and Emotion contains some of my very best work.

Trower’s smooth-as-butter guitar licks, screaming solos and ethereal bluesy vocals keep the listener hooked.  Robin has a vibe, a voice and a presence on his instrument that transcends time and space.  He plays from the soul and he is as intoxicated from the music he creates as his listeners.
If you love electric guitar then you will love this album.   It is sly, sleek and soothing at times and rocking and rolling other times.  This guy can play. It really is that simple.

Robin Trower is back with perhaps his best solo album since he was in his 40s. Considering Robin is 72, that’s saying a lot!  It is not that Trower’s recent efforts are not worthy, but rather that his latest release ‘Time and Emotion‘ is so damn good.

Following the Friday 4th August UK release of the album, Robin will perform his only concert in the UK this year at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on Wednesday 29th November. Tickets can be booked from the 24 HR Box Office: 08444 780 898 or booked from www.thegigcartel.com or the venue website.

Somethings About To Change

Robin Trower has launched his first-ever music video for the title track of his new album “Something’s About To Change”.

Something’s About To Change was released by Manhaton/V12 Records on March 9th 2015 – the same day as Robin’s 70th birthday.  It marks Trower’s first album since 2013’s critically acclaimed “Roots And Branches”, and dovetails his 17-date UK tour with special guest Joanne Shaw Taylor starting March 26.

When it comes to a new album by Robin Trower, some things never change. The guitar work will be breathtaking. The song writing will be heartfelt and fearless. The vocal will siphon the soul. True to form, from the opening swoop of electric guitar, Something’s About To Change is a thrilling encapsulation of everything fans love about the celebrated bandleader. And yet, as the title implies, this album finds Trower twisting his talent into bold new shapes. 

Something’s About To Change confirms a world-class musician at the top of his game. With his own V12 record label allowing Trower to bypass the spirit-sapping protocol of the conventional record industry, it comes to no surprise this new album sounds so vital. While palpably influenced by Trower’s deep love of post-war U.S. blues, its personal themes and visceral music means that it will resonate with every generation. “As a songwriter and a performer, you use everything at your disposal to put into songs,” reflects Trower.

The songs remain the cornerstones. Trower’s astonishing fretwork may sometimes take top billing, but the all-original material of Something’s About To Change speaks of the gas in his creative tank. Fallen drips with atmosphere. Riff No. 7 (Still Alive) moves with power and purpose.

Tracking alongside long-standing producer Livingstone Brown at Studio 91 in Newbury, this was not a dry exercise in box-ticking, but a bid to capture the rare chemistry between Trower and his band. On drums, Chris Taggart’s touch can be thunderous or feather-light. On organ, Luke Smith slips between his roles as support player and sparring partner on standout cuts like What You Never Want To Do. Leading the line, of course, is Trower himself, playing bass for the first time, alongside his unmistakable soul-in-fingers guitar parts. “There is some sort of feeling of emotional release,” he says, “when you play a note that rings out right.”
