The latest Press Release for Sadie and the Hotheads
SADIE AND THE HOTHEADS - RELEASE NEW ALBUM AND LAUNCH NATIONAL TOUR
Renowned for their unique sound, stylised with a fusion of blues, folk, big band, country and jazz, Sadie and the Hotheads, will be releasing their third album and commencing a 27 date national tour as the demand for their original and unparalleled sound continues to take hold of the UK.
The band’s forthcoming album “Still Waiting” will be released on 10th February 2014. The first single from the album, entitled “Everybody’s Got A Song”, is a rousing upbeat number with a distinct feel good factor, beckoning listeners to ‘BRING IT ON!’ In a departure from the outdated recording industry model, the album has been funded through PledgeMusic, allowing the band to maintain complete artistic control.
In addition to the highly anticipated third album, the band will also be embarking on a 27 date UK tour starting on 2 February at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, with its grand finale taking place at London’s prestigious Hammersmith Apollo on 16 March. Sadie and the Hotheads will be Special Guests to famed English supergroup Mike and the Mechanics from 12 February.
Elizabeth McGovern’s ‘Sadie’ has received acclaim as infusing “personality and charm… holding the centre stage with a warm mischievous smile”, whilst her zany and often heartfelt lyrics defines the band’s idiosyncratic music.
The ‘Hotheads’, consist of veteran musicians including Simon Nelson (electric and acoustic guitar, dobro), Steve Nelson (acoustic guitar, bouzouki, banjo), Terl Bryant (Drums and percussion), Ron Knights (Bass), Nick Lacey (Piano, keyboards, penny whistle) and Danica Chapman (Backing vocals).
The band regularly collaborates with world-class artists, such as John Paul Jones, Joss Stone, Faith Hill, Ms. Dynamite, Beverley Knight, Desree, Mavis Staples, Walter Trout, Pete Murphy, Roddy Frame & Maddy Prior.
Sadie and the Hotheads are currently World Vision Artist Ambassadors, promoting life-changing work of World Vision through events, tours and creative experiences.
