B R Dalton – Blood & Gold Debut Album Show + Special Guests
Wednesday 11 October 7.00pm
BR Dalton, an Irish born singer/songwriter, has called Australia home for the past ten years, performing on street corners, festivals stages, pubs and intimate theatres all around Australia, bit by bit honing a spectacularly intimate collection of songs that only get better upon revision.
BR Dalton has performed in some exceptional settings highlights including an opening slot for Irish rock outfit The Corona’s, Gavin James on his most recent Australian tour and the prolific Damien Rice at Dublin’s famous Iveagh Gardens. His debut album ever present, simmering away in his subconscious, waiting patiently to become reality.
The album explores themes of love, loss, heartbreak and complete utter dissolution even touching on the political spectrum shifting at key moments to Irelands ferocious battle for independence.
Embellished with world class string arrangements, double bass, hauntingly distorted and fuzzed out electric guitars and lush harmonies it’s hard to imagine this album was conceived whilst on tour in Adelaide with every fragile vocal and guitar captured live in an Air BnB.
A hugely dynamic and captivating experience from start to finish BR Dalton’s debut is a slow burning listener’s album reminiscent of early Swell Season records, in fact it’s hard to ignore that this artist’s authenticity is undoubtedly cut from the same thick cloth as the likes of Glen Hansard and Damien Dempsey.
Dalton and his band launch BLOOD & GOLD into the universe at Perth’s Famous ELLINGTON JAZZ CLUB for one night only on October 11 plus special GUESTS.
