Following news of his stunning new album The Light Fantastic and five intimate dates for February 2024 earlier this month, JOHN BRAMWELL has announced an additional 24 UK and Ireland headline dates for spring/summer 2024.
Here at The Barrel House Ballroom, Totnes we are delighted to be one of those 24 dates.
Anyone who has heard John’s work with seminal Manchester band I Am Kloot, will be cheered by the news of this impending release. Nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2010 for their acclaimed Sky At Night album, I Am Kloot never quite received the widespread success their music deserved.
This new album is a masterclass in emotionally charged and melodically driven tunes for the adventurous. All 12 tracks were written by John except for ‘Nobody Left But You’ which he co-wrote with album producer Dave Fidler.
“After both my Mum and Dad died, I started writing these songs to cheer myself up,” John admits with typical candour. “The themes are taken from my dreams at the time. Wake up and take whatever impression I had from what I could remember of my dream and write that.”
Despite the sentiment, the songs are surprisingly uplifting. And will no doubt be exceptional live.
