The time is here and even I'm a little behind! Things have been a little hectic up to the run up of the Northern Town release.
I had a great show on Friday opening for my good friends in Talon at The Robin 2 in Bilston. Thanks for having me out and to such a great crowd, the ambience in the room was fantastic!
Well, Northern Town is now available everywhere for download. Thanks to Gold Ship Records and to everyone who has helped along the way to make it possible to get out.
Here's what folks are saying so far;
"Listening to him sing it’s hard to believe he hails from Nottingham. He’s certainly travelled around a fair bit, something that, in his case, has been great fuel for his songs. His lyrics are soulful and poetic and they have that personal connection you’d normally attribute to a storyteller, and he delivers it all with grace." - Folk Radio UK
"producing real, soulful country music. If this record is a sign of things to come, we have a great new talent here who deserves recognition." - Your Life In a Song
"Lonesome Level Crossing has a sweet melancholy ‘swing’ to it and Whittemore’s way with descriptive words are as clever as anything I’ve heard out of Nashville or Austin in the last year." - Rocking Magpie
These are just a few kind words being said about the new record which I am extremely pleased and proud to finally put out. As I've previously mentioned, it has truly been a labour of love.
You can download Northern Town NOW on iTunes.
You can also Stream on Spotify.
CD's will be available on the upcoming Summer UK tour.
