Chris Cleverley Launches New Album Playing Willows Folk Club
Alt-folk songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist, Chris Cleverley releases 2nd studio album to worldwide audiences in October, contributing to activity surrounding World Mental Health Day 2019.
This body of new work addresses a selection of 21st Century society’s most pertinent, challenging concerns through Cleverley’s incomparable brand of contemporary folk music. Diverse lyrical themes from deteriorating anxious minds through to literary heroines blend with an experimental guitar fingerstyle, akin to Nic Jones & John Martyn, presenting a bittersweet yet uplifting listen.
With BBC Folk Award winning Producer Sam Kelly at the helm, arrangements showcase an all-star cast of UK folk luminaries including Hannah Martin (Edgelarks) and Evan Carson (The Willows), as well as Cleverley’s bandmates from The Sunday Times-endorsed ‘Company of Players’ project. 12 original songs centre around a pervasive sense of anxiety afflicting our modern age.
