Roddy Woomble, The Globe, Cardiff - 22nd October 2017

Roddy is so great. I've enjoyed his work since early Idlewild - a learned wordsmith. The new record isn't quite as "jazz" as reviews suggest, but mixes hints at avant gardism with catchy hooks and Americana - at least, that's how the live performance came off. Also, it's a progression to something more accessible than the "folk" of his previous releases.

His new band is tight, very good.

The room should have been more full for such a talent - we need to see him back here again.

Woomble formed art rock band Idlewild whilst studying at the University Of Edinburgh. The band exploded towards the latter end of the 90’s and grew from cult outsiders to mainstream success. They released eight highly acclaimed albums, two of which debuted in the Top 10, plus a further three compilations. They entered a hiatus in 2010 and then came back three years later and continue to work on new material.

It was in 2006 that Woomble heralded the start of his solo career with the release of the album My Secret Is My Silence. Produced by John McCusker, it shot straight to #1 in the UK Folk Chart and was included by many critics in their ‘Best Of The Year’ album rundown.

It was followed two years later in 2008 with collaborative album Before The Ruin written with Kris Drever and John McCusker, then follow by second solo album The Impossible Song & Other Songs in 2011. His latest albums are Listen To Keep and Live At Kings Place.

Woomble also united poets, writers and musicians to create the LP Ballads Of The Book which was released through the label Chemikal Underground.
