Albany Down CD launch
January 12, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£10 - £12
Contemporary UK blues-rock band, Albany Down, came together with some classic rock and Brit blues-rock influences, but with their 2011 debut album, ‘South of the City’, they found their own sound.
Albany Down are Paul Muir on vocals, guitarist Paul Turley, drummer Donna Peters and bassist Billy Dedman and they have recorded a brace of albums with producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, INME, Super Furry Animals).
“These guys are really going somewhere; make sure they take you with them!” – Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
Blues Rock Review offered a fair assessment of both the band and their debut album: “South of the City” is a solid debut album from Albany Down and they will be an interesting band to watch develop in the coming years”.
They now step up to the plate with12 original well-crafted songs on their formidable new album ‘Not Over Yet’. Traditionally a band’s second album is regarded as being problematical but Albany Down have turned that notion on its head, taking all that was good on ‘South of the City’, honing their song writing craft and revelling in Greg Haver’s powerful production.
The band’s big Zeppelin-influenced sound draws from the same British blues-rock well, that gave Zeppelin a head start all those years ago and later was rediscovered by Joe Bonamassa. But it’s the resonant substance of the band’s own songs and their exuberant style that gives the new album its edge.
