Success is a mystical pursuit; a blend of timing, talent, good fortune, dedication and hard work. A break in the schedule of award winning roots-rockers The Bros. Landreth offered Joey Landreth a chance to step forward and test the creative waters with is 2017 debut solo album ‘Whiskey’. It proved to be a very potent recipe.
‘Whiskey’was an extension of the kind of eclectic, aurally pleasing, and deeply meaningful songs produced by the band, but accentuated and amplified by Joey Landreth’s dynamic guitar stylings as well as his passionate vocal performances. The album and subsequent touring earned rave reviews from critics and fans, showcasing Joey Landreth as a songwriter, vocalist, musician and performer in his own right.
With his one-of-a-kind guitar prowess, charming on and off-stage demeanour, the sincerity and authenticity of his words and music, every piece of music Landreth composes with carry with it his unmistakably evocative and melodic hallmarks.
Seeking a new creative challenge, Landreth recently stepped out of the proverbial comfort, writing a great deal of music completely on his own, as well as alongside the precociously talented young songwriter/producer Roman Clarke. It is a bold step, but one that he has approached with great relish and excitement.
But fear not, it’s not a radical departure, simply a broadening of horizons and an opportunity for personal and creative growth. The results of Landreth’s labours are going to be road tested during upcoming touring and an upcoming album release.
Landreth has said that there will be a new The Bros. Landreth album coming out later in 2019. In the meantime, fans of Joey Landreth will not have to wait long to bear witness to his stirring solo shows as he embarks again on a full touring schedule, and he finishes off the final touches on his yet to be titled new album.
It promises to be a wonderful opportunity to hear the next stage in the evolution of a truly remarkable artist, one who possesses the rare ability to connect to people through his melodies, through his lyrics, and through his riveting performances.
Roman Clarke‘Scorcher’ was made over the course of 2018 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Besides the string parts that pepper the album (which were performed by Rory Graham), he played every instrument, sang every background vocal, and produced the entire thing himself. Creative control is an important facet of his artistry, and that is well represented in this first collection of songs.
This album will be the first real step into the world as a solo artist, having been touring and releasing music with the Manitoban power trio The Middle Coast for several years, as well as touring with various other acts such as Michael Bernard Fitzgerald and Joey Landreth.
Roman has also begun his journey as a producer and songwriter for other artists. His first full album as a producer and songwriter on Joey Landreth’s (of The Brothers Landreth) new album will be released in 2019. in 2017, he co-produced Olivia Lunny’s 2017 release with Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Crash Test Dummies).
