Charley Crockett and his lonesome shadow hit the UK for July dates

Texan Charlie Crockett’s music has been described by No Depression as “sounding like what might happen if Roy Orbison and Ry Cooder teamed up with Dick Dale” and what more of a recommendation do you need to go out and see for yourself?  Crockett arrives in the UK in July for a series of dates ahead of the release of his new album ‘Lonesome As A Shadow’ due out at the end of this month.  Produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Zac Brown) and recorded at Sam Phillip’s Recording in Memphis, TN, the album is Crockett’s fourth full-length album and his first release consisting entirely of original songs. In addition to Crockett on vocals and guitar, the album features his longtime touring band, “The Blue Drifters.” Here are those dates.
