With one foot in the blues and the other striding through the modern musical metropolis, London singer-songwriter David Sinclair has released the critically-applauded albums Hey, Threewheeling and Take Me There. Now comes 4, released on Critical Discs/IRL on May 11. Featuring contributions from harmonica man Paul Jones, lovers rock legend Maxi Priest, and Scottish jazz singer Lorna Reid, it is his most storied collection of songs yet.
Combining dry, lyrical wit with a hard-hitting brand of rock’n’roll, Sinclair’s group has built a formidable reputation as a live attraction, sharing stages with Wilko Johnson, the Oli Brown Band, Marcus Bonfanti, Johnny Dowd, Graham Bonnet, Willie Nile (UK Tour 2013) and many others.
David Sinclair Four will play a special hometown show at The Borderline on May 14 to celebrate the release of the band’s new album 4.
“Take the brilliant immediacy of Ray Davies’ compositions add that to the textured sensibility of Dire Straits’ playing, now sprinkle in a dose of the Talking Heads’ lyrical genius, and you have an idea of the David Sinclair Four.” Rick Jamm, Jamsphere.com
“Raw energy and witty British lyrics.” Paul Russell, BBC Radio 2
