DEADBEAT BALLADS’ is the debut album from an original and exciting artist, Big Top Heartbreak. Watch here.
Recorded in Bristol with some wonderful musicians including Quinta on saw (Bat For Lashes, Patrick Wolf), Pete Judge (Get The Blessing, Super Furry Animals), Jim Barr (Portishead) and TJ Allen (Bat For Lashes) who also produced and mixed the album.
Essex born Scott Lavene, the lead man and songwriter, wrote the majority of the songs whilst in a house for the bewildered. Alive again and hungry for the chance to make music, Scott went on tour supporting Blue Rose Code in 2015 and set about making the album. Scott’s honesty, passion and humorous takes on life are here to enjoy in these fresh and original songs.
Live, Big Top Heartbreak is both a powerful and intimate affair. Touching, funny, honest and a master class in storytelling.
The album will be released on 17thth October with a London launch party followed by a national solo tour to support the release.
