John Bramwell Announces The Light Fantastic
New Album Released February 23rd 2024
Announces 5 Intimate Shows
Including Three Shows At London’s St Pancras Old Church
One of the country’s most underrated singer-songwriters, John Bramwell, returns to the fray with a remarkable new album The Light Fantastic, out February 23rd via Townsend Music.
Anyone who has heard John’s work with seminal Manchester band I Am Kloot, will be cheered by the news of this impending release. Nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2010 for their acclaimed Sky At Night album, I Am Kloot never quite received the widespread success their music deserved.
This new album is a masterclass in emotionally charged and melodically driven tunes for the adventurous. All 12 tracks were written by John except for ‘Nobody Left But You’ which he co-wrote with album producer Dave Fidler.
“After both my Mum and Dad died, I started writing these songs to cheer myself up,” John admits with typical candour. “The themes are taken from my dreams at the time. Wake up and take whatever impression I had from what I could remember of my dream and write that.”
Despite the sentiment, the songs are surprisingly uplifting. And will no doubt sound great live.
John Bramwell & The Full Harmonic will play the following shows next year. Tickets are on sale now.
Wed 21st London, St Pancras Old Church
Thurs 22nd London, St Pancras Old Church SOLD-OUT
Fri 23rd London, St Pancras Old Church SOLD-OUT
