Jarrod Dickenson has announced the release date for his long-awaited album Ready The Horses - it'll be in stores on September 29th.
And after spending the summer performing at festivalsl, he will head out on a headline UK tour to plug the opus, and calls in to Bedford Esquires on October 14.
Storytelling is something of a Texas tradition. Tall hats and even taller tales are woven into the fabric of The Lone Star State, and singer-songwriter Jarrod can spin a yarn with the best of them.
Hailing from Waco, now based in Nashville, Jarrod spends most of his time on the road bringing his own particular brand of soulful Americana to a wide variety of music loving audiences around the globe.
Jarrod's critically acclaimed album 'The Lonesome Traveler' and his subsequent EP 'Songs From Willow St' paved the way for him to tour the UK, Ireland and Europe extensively over the last several years.
Breakout performances at Glastonbury and Larmer Tree Festival, along with recent tours supporting legendary artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Don McLean, The Waterboys and Jools Holland have earned Jarrod a formidable and loyal fan base across the globe, including BBC radio hosts Dermot O'Leary and Janice Long.
The past few months have been quite a ride for Jarrod. With ‘Ready The Horses’ originally due for a March 2017 release, early reviews from a substantial spread of music magazines had proved the album a critical success. Jarrod was all set to reveal the fruits of his labours to the public when, after his fifth headline UK tour, he caught the attention of Decca Records and ‘Ready The Horses’ was picked up by the label.
“I think we've found a great home for the new album with Decca Records," Jarrod said.
"It's an honour to be working with such an iconic label, and to be a part of their rich musical history. I'm very proud of 'Ready The Horses', and I am excited to send it out into the world."
With such mature songwriting, it’s hard to believe this is only album two for the sharp dressing and skillful pickin’ singer-guitarist. Jarrod embodies the originality and style of a bygone era with vintage-inspired-hats and traditional southern sensibilities. The laid back writing found throughout ‘Ready The Horses’ is reminiscent of Gram Parsons, and Jarrod’s vocal flair has been compared to both a young Johnny Cash and Tom Waits.
Ready the Horses, the boy's coming through...
