Justin Currie, former Del Amitri frontman and main songwriter, has sharpened his pop hooks and topped off the vinegar in his veins for his 3rd solo album Lower Reaches, out April 15th. Recorded in Austin, Texas, with producer Mike McCarthy (Craig Finn of The Hold Steady), Spoon, Patty Griffin, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead), the album features stories of love and loss with a magical mix of the Scottish songwriter’s bittersweet poetry and soulful vocals, especially on the ironically upbeat radio single “Bend to My Will” and the folky and reflective “Little Stars.”
“Currie has been doing his particular thing—and brilliantly so—for over two decades now…fired, as always, by Currie’s finely spun melodies, expertly placed hooks and ironically warm vocals. —New York Daily News
