MEDIA RELEASE - Lloyd Spiegel Releases New Album 'Cut and Run'
Acoustic Blues trailblazer Lloyd Spiegel is pleased to announce the release of his 10th album ‘Cut and Run’ and is headed out on a mammoth Australian tour to get people acquainted with the new tracks.
From the fiery boogie opener ‘Any Second Now’, through to the dark acoustic closing of ‘Old Wounds’, Cut and Run takes the listener on a trip from honest acoustic ballads to searing Blues Rock and captures Spiegel at his best as a vocalist and guitarist while providing some of his best lyrical work to date.
The new album, along with This Time Tomorrow (2017) and last year’s Backroads concludes a trilogy of albums and represents the fruits of an intensely creative time for the Melbourne-based bluesman.
Says Spiegel, “the last three years I’ve written one album while touring the previous so it’s a natural progression that each group of songs is a response to the last. Cut and Run has a positivity and clarity in it that for me, resolves a great deal of the questions I asked myself on the last two albums. It’s definitely the end of a chapter for me both musically and personally.”
Groovy lead track ‘Track Her Down’ has already received extensive airplay on ABC, Double J and community stations nationally, hitting number 2 on the AMRAP regional chart and set up a buzz for the new album’s arrival.
The Cut and Run Tour starts in Canada in September and hits Australia mid-October with shows from the Sunny Coast round to Adelaide and across to Western Australia, with Tasmanian dates slated for early next year.
‘Cut and Run’ is available as presale on iTunes from August 13, and instore on September 3
