Acclaimed Blues Rock songwriter and guitarist, Doyle Bramhall II, has announced a headline show at London’s Under The Bridge this May, following on from the success of his most recent release, Rich Man.
The show will follow on from Doyle performing at the Royal Albert Hall for three sold out shows in support of the legendary Eric Clapton.
His latest album, Rich Man, has been long awaited by fans who have followed Bramhall’s collaborations with artists as far-ranging as Tedeschi Trucks Band to Roger Waters, as it is his first solo release since 2001.
The album reflects both his extensive experience in the interim with such artists as Eric Clapton, whom he’s worked closely with for more than ten years (and who hails him as one of the most gifted guitarists he’s ever heard) and Sheryl Crow, for whom he produced and composed songs for on the 2011 album 100 Miles from Memphis, as well as an intensive spiritual and musical journey that took him to India and Africa in search of new sounds and an inner peace sought following the death of his legendary father Doyle Bramhall.
“I’d been writing pretty consistently for other artists and projects since my last album and had stored a lot of songs, sort of documenting my life story,” says Bramhall, whose long list of collaboration credits further includes the likes of Roger Waters, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, B.B. King, T-Bone Burnett, Elton John, Gary Clark Jr., Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Billy Preston, Erykah Badu, Questlove and Meshell Ndegeocello.
Rich Man manifests Bramhall’s “life journey to find my voice and grow as a creative person and as a man to get to this place, which feels like a new beginning for me.”
Fans will now have the chance to experience Doyle’s reinvigoration first hand as he performs old favourites and tracks from Rich Man at Under The Bridge on May 28th.
