Richard Hawley tickets selling fast
Award-winning Sheffield troubadour Richard Hawley will descend on Derry on December 1, with a sumptuous live show at The Nerve Centre.
This Derry date has been a long time coming for local fans of Richard Hawley and many will no doubt welcome him with open arms and eager ears when he graces Magazine Street’s most memorable stage. Supporting him on the night will be John Smith, who is also making great strides in the industry.
Following the success of his award-winning, hugely-acclaimed 2009 album ‘Truelove’s Gutter’, Richard Hawley released his seventh studio album, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ in May this year.
Recorded at Sheffield’s Yellow Arch Studio in 2011, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ marks a seismic shift in direction for Hawley.
The album is a euphoric, sonic assault on the senses, channelling elements of psychedelia, space rock and ragas with heavy riffs and raw, visceral guitar solos – as well as more familiar, tender moments – which will surprise Hawley’s fans and peers alike.
Exploring lyrical themes of love, loss, redemption and darker areas of the human condition, it’s an album of ominous storytelling and cosmic exploration, sung in Hawley’s rich baritone and soundtracked by an epic musical journey in glorious, menacing Technicolor. In the tradition of Hawley’s previous albums, the title is inspired by an area of Sheffield.
Hawley says of the album, “I wanted to get away from the orchestration of my previous records and make a live album with two guitars, bass, drums and rocket noises!” The album was also nominated for this year’s prestigious Mercury Music Awards, the second time Hawley has been nominated.
