We are really enjoying Southampton Music alum Joe Stilgoe‘s newest disc, New Songs for Old Souls. And so are lots of other people: check out the five-star review in the Observer, this enthusiastic article from ArtsDesk, and this great account in London Jazz News of the album launch at the Old Vic, where Joe is currently playing in the theatre’s acclaimed production of High Society until 22 August. After that, he’s touring the new album to a whole lot of other places before we finally get to see him again in Southampton in January 2016, for a welcome back to familiar territory at Turner Sims.
The songs are all Joe’s own creations. He talks about the process and his inspirations in this video:
And here’s the trailer for his upcoming tour – see Joe’s website for dates and venues.
