Nigel Wearne Album Launch

Fresh from touring the UK & US and an Official Showcase at AmericanaFest in Nashville, Nigel Wearne brings his hot new band to The Gaso for what promises to be an electrifying album launch. He’s had a huge 2023... in this year alone he's toured the US three times, the UK twice and played a bunch of festivals including MerleFest (USA), Cambridge Folk Festival (UK), Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion (USA), Mile of Music Festival (USA) and Old Settler's Music Festival (USA). At his recent AmericanaFest performance, none other than Americana Queen Lucinda Williams was in the front row fist pumping and jiving to the tunes.

Wearne’s new offering, The Reckoning is an album of contrasts. Rollicking, rumbling, sneering and reflective. A full band explosion of songs, stories and musical mayhem. All the while, Wearne's crooning, cutting, monolithic vocal keeps lyricism and poetry at the forefront. An enlivening experience that inhabits the after-dark realms of blues, jazz and soul with a shot of Ennio Morricone; this is Americana-noir. The new beginnings of a dedicated and shape-shifting artist.
