BERNARD BUTLER CONFIRMED TO PLAY ON ALL DATES OF BEN WATT'S
NOVEMBER SOLO UK TOUR
With his recent return to songwriting and guitar-playing triggering an unexpected new solo studio album (produced by Ewan Pearson) due for next spring, Ben Watt is now excited to announce that current collaborator and acclaimed guitarist Bernard Butler will be joining him on the whole of his upcoming November solo tour of the UK.
'Bernard was one of the first people I turned to when embarking on this new road,' says Watt. 'His grainy sound in the perfect foil to my new open-tuned approach, and when he played unannounced on the recent sold-out London shows in August, it was just a great fit. He is playing a prominent role on the current album, and now to have him play with me onstage on all of these November dates is fantastic news. The combined sound is incredibly atmospheric and heart-felt. An amazing backdrop for the songs.'
The tour - which showcases much of Ben's new material and revisits several songs from his very early days - starts in Bristol on Nov 11, and ends after five back-to-back nights in Birmingham on Nov 15.
