Tony Wright (Terrorvision) & Ryan Hamilton (The Traitors) have shared the music video for the lead single from their forthcoming collaborative album ‘Grand Ole Otley‘ – out June 8th – their version of the Don Gibson classic later recorded by Johnny Cash among others, ‘Oh, Lonesome Me’, which has also received airplay at Americana radio and been highlighted as one of Classic Rock / Louder’s Tracks of the Week, among other early coverage for the release. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/f0mLM4j4OAY.
After being introduced by producer Dave Draper, Wright & Hamilton’s shared love of ‘good music’ led to talk of an album re-imagining country standards and more obscure songs from way back in the archives. The resulting album, ‘Grand Old Otley’, is a heady mix of country, Americana and folk and is likely to prove much darker at times that could be expected from a pair notorious for their wise-cracking.
The pair take the album on the road for a short string of intimate shows in June (a few tickets remaining for each date) – celebrating the official release at London’s beautiful St Pancras Old Church on Friday June 8th. The album is available to pre-order on iTunes now (here) and physical copies of the album will be available at each date:
6th June – Parish, Huddersfield
7th June – Gullivers, Manchester
8th June – St Pancras Old Church, London
9th June – Bodega, Nottingham
10th June – Prohibition Caberet Bar, Gateshead
