‘A lyrically spiritual, musically earthy balance of electric-blues bravado, psychedelic-country exploration and almost courtly vocal cool.’ – Rolling Stone
Rich Robinson has just announced an intimate and (mostly) acoustic tour around the UK this September & October. Better known as guitarist, songwriter and co-founder of the seminal rock act The Black Crowes, Rich Robinson has sold well over 30 million albums throughout a career that spans over 25 years.
The unique and personal nature of this tour sees Robinson – who appears on stage with just five guitars and his own musical zeitgeist – performing material from his most recent album, the critically acclaimed ‘The Ceaseless Sight’, which Rolling Stone’s David Fricke called “…so rich in textures and assured in the writing that it sounds like a true debut,” as well as from its two predecessors, ‘Through A Crooked Sun’ and ‘Paper’.
Additional repertoire sources include material from Bob Dylan and Buffalo Springfield as well as traditional folk blues. He notes, “I enjoy the simplicity of doing acoustic shows where I can break a song down to its purest form; it’s closest to the way I write them.”
It all comes down to the song, and among some of the great electronic music that relies heavily on technology, there’s still a place for organic, stripped down songwriting and storytelling, which is where part of Robinson’s stellar talent lies.
