DHP Family Presents:
The Sad Song Co.
+ support from Mark McCabe and Jack Francis
Live at Thousand Island, Highbury
The Sad Song Co., the solo moniker of Nigel Powell – touring and studio drummer for Frank Turner’s the Sleeping Souls, one quarter of Dive Dive and ex-member of Unbelievable Truth – releases fourth album Worth on 9th February 2018.
Nigel released third album in amber in November 2016, a successful crowd-funded return to solo songwriting nine years after 2007’s Poignant Device while continuing to be in bands and making his living on the road. An album dealing with stories around an old people’s home, it showcased a side of the man that most new fans had yet to see. Worth then is the sound of a man whose previously dormant abilities have burst a dam, ﬂowing creativity and imagination into complex and deeply personal songs. “When I wasn’t getting time to make albums of my own I would get quite frustrated and depressed in that situation because I didn’t have an avenue for expressing myself the way I really wanted to do it,” explains Nigel. “So coming back to The Sad Song Co. has been a very positive thing for me.”
Tickets are on sale on Friday the 15th of December at 10am from Alt Tickets, TicketWeb UK and other outlets.
