Familiar to many thousands of music fans as the front man in Scottish rock band Idlewild, Roddy Woomble is also a celebrated songwriter and performer, whose naturally poetic writing and consistent touring have won huge numbers of fans all over the world.
Packed with memorable melodies and powerful, artistic expression, his latest solo album, Listen to Keep (2013; Reveal Records), features 11 new songs written and recorded with his band at An Tobar on the Isle of Mull. The new band featuring Hannah Fisher (violin, vocals), Craig Ainslie (bass) and Sorren Maclean (guitar, vocals) help to create the perfect backdrop for Roddy’s poetic lyrics, adding touches of country and folk to a set of poignant songs.
We are very excited to be working alongside Kings Place, an iconic independently funded arts venue housed in an award-winning building in the heart of King’s Cross. With intimate concert halls and world-class acoustics, its vibrant artistic programme offers specially curated series across a range of genres including classical, jazz, contemporary, folk, world, Americana, spoken word and comedy.
Roddy will be playing Kings Place on Thursday 7th May. We will be recording the gig and it will be available from Society of Sound as a high-quality download.
We have three pairs of tickets to give away. If you’d like to win a pair, simply let us know here, with which Scottish rock band is Roddy the lead singer.
