We’re excited to be working with Danny George Wilson for the first time!

On the back of his acclaimed new solo album Another Place, Danny George Wilson hits the road in spring 2022 with a tour that stretches from Falmouth to Newcastle. The band Danny has brought together to perform with him on these shows features Champions of the World alumni Paul Lush on lead guitar, Joe Bennett on bass and Steve Brookes on drums, and is rounded out by Henry Garratt on keys.

Another Place was recorded in Lewes with producer Hamish Benjamin and has been praised for its sonic adventuring and some of the best songwriting of Danny’s to date. Mojo called the album ‘an idiosyncratic gem… one of Wilson’s finest’ and RnR praised it for its ‘sheer beauty’.

Danny George Wilson’s formidable credentials go back to his days in seminal UK roots rock band Grand Drive with brother Julian, followed by six albums of consistently high calibre output with his enormously successful Danny & The Champions of the World incarnation: in 2016 the band swept the boards at the first UK Americana Awards, winning with Album, Artist and Song of the Year. Alongside Robin Bennett (The Dreaming Spires, Goldrush, Saint Etienne) and Tony Poole (Starry Eyed and Laughing) he released an eponymous album as Bennett Wilson Poole (‘instant classics… hints of Willie and Levon,’ said Uncut) – and the band was subsequently named Americana UK’s ‘Band Of The Year’ in 2018 and the UK Americana Awards ‘Artist of the Year’ 2019.

‘A wonderfully weird concoction of folk and rock music that continuously stops time like a good Neil Young or Bob Dylan song’ – Folking

Tour support comes from Katy Rose Bennett. Katy Rose Bennett (formerly known as KTB) has been writing and performing her idiosyncratic brand of elegant folk for over 20 years. October 2020 saw Katy launch the album Where Does It Hurt? An Introduction to Katy Rose Bennett, featuring songs from her considerable back catalogue as well as two new songs including the album’s title track. A year later, in September 2021, Katy released the follow-up album Alone on a Hill.

‘Gentle acoustics from the Nick Drake school… literate songs which ride youth’s emotional rollercoaster… strikingly original’ – UNCUT
