About The Events
We are delighted to announce we will be hosting the album launch for Michael Weston King in March 2022!
Michael Weston King
He is the former leader of U.K. Alt Country pioneers The Good Sons, with whom he made 4 critically acclaimed albums in a seven year career, which was celebrated by the double album, Cosmic Fireworks-The Best of The Good Sons (1994-2001).
From 1999 – 2010 he toured the world as a solo artist performing with the likes of Nick Cave, John Cale, Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Chris Hillman, Ron Sexsmith, and many more, and releasing 6 studio albums, 3 live albums and a career retrospective dvd, The Crowning Story, along the way.
For the past ten years he has been half of the brilliant country soul duo My Darling Clementine with his wife Lou Dalgleish. Together they have toured widely across Europe and N.America, and released 5 critically acclaimed albums, the latest being Country Darkness, a collaboration with Steve Nieve reinterpreting the songs of Elvis Costello.
But this is a rare solo appearance timed to coincide with the release of a new album, The Struggle , his first solo album in eleven years.
He will be joined by Welsh wunderkind, the brilliant Clovis Phillips with whom Michael has collaborated on the new album.
The live show will feature many of the brand new songs as well as favourites from his 25 year / 19 album career, along with stories and anecdotes about his time touring with the likes of Nick Cave, John Cale, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Jackie Leven and many more.
Michael Weston King has a voice part Nashville balladeer and part Alt Country hero………a cross between Nick Cave and Rodney Crowell. THE INDEPENDENT.
