ANNOUNCES SEPTEMBER UK SHOWS
IN SUPPORT OF HIS BRAND NEW SELF TITLED ALBUM
Okeefe’s voice hits you with the force of a hurricane: a rare, powerful, gravelly sound, the likes of which is usually crafted from many decades of nicotine, alcohol and hard living in the deep south. – No Depression
He is an outlaw and he is commercial. He is topical and he is light. He is a poet, a musician, a writer, and maybe a prophet. – Gary Green (Smithsonian Folkways)
In 2009, Derby, England native and folk-singer Josh Okeefe dropped out of college and traveled across the pond and arrived in Nashville, TN where his idols Hank Williams Sr and Johnny Cash had both once lived. He visited the places they had graced regularly; became a regular in the rock and roll clubs in East Nashville, TN; met a host of other musicians and began writing songs at an astonishing pace which went on to land him a number of major label cuts.
Over a couple of nights in his 350 sq. ft Tennessee Log Home Josh Okeefe recorded his debut album with just a borrowed RCA Microphone from the 1960’s in which Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and Guy Clark have all spat there mojo into and an Ampex 2-track Tape Machine which Okeefe purchased from JJ Cale’s estate for $100.
And now Josh Okeefe returns to his homeland the United Kingdom for a string of dates which include his first-ever theatre performances and main stage festival slots. You do not want to miss this!
