Boo Hewerdine & Yvonne Lyon

G Live, Guildford

Fri 25 October 2019

Boo Hewerdine & Yvonne Lyon

Boo Hewerdine

The new recordings on Before are a perfect contrast of mood and theme to the gloriously rich, full band pop sound of 2017’s acclaimed Swimming in Mercury album. This new album finds Boo focused on the art of reduction, consumed by fine details and found sound, songs where the fragility and beauty of life are laid bear with a stark emotive honesty.

Before was recorded in the first weeks of 2019, with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljungren Boo’s only collaborator on the set. Whilst this is an album for the times (that echoes the darkness and confusion in Europe surrounding it’s pre-Brexit conception) Before is also a timely reminder of the power of simplicity, Hewerdine’s lyricism set to a subtle backdrop of vintage instrumentation.

For over 30 years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band, The Bible, through his subsequent solo work and his long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader he has become something of a national treasure. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer. This Autumn he will be undertaking an extensive tour, singing songs from his new album Before and his extensive back catalogue. A naturally gifted raconteur his gigs are always a total joy.

'One of the country’s most consistently admired songwriters’ 
Folk Radio UK

'If I could write books that sounded like this, I’d be…maybe not happy, but very, very fulfilled
Nick Hornby, author of Fever Pitch and High Fidelity
