Australian Blues master and acoustic guitarist extraordinaire Lloyd Spiegel is two months into the tour to launch his new album ‘This Time Tomorrow’ and the ‘sold out’ signs have been hanging on many venue doors thus far.
After such an incredible start, Lloyd is delighted to announce new dates in SA, WA, TAS and a handful of other shows on the east coast, including ‘Back by Popular Demand’ performances in Sydney and Melbourne.
‘This Time Tomorrow’ has spent 3 months at #1 of the Australian Blues Radio Airplay chart, peaked at #5 on the ARIA Jazz and Blues Chart, and #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart, and the album was written as Lloyd travelled through Europe, Central, and North America and delivers driving rhythms that return Spiegel to his gut bucket blues roots. Shady and colourful characters spread out over continents and decades, through places forgotten and familiar. ‘This Time Tomorrow’ is a return in fine form from an artist at the top of his game, and lead track ‘Devil On My Shoulder’ sets the mood of the album right from the get go.
Says Spiegel of the new songs,
“I’ve never written at home. I find it hard to be creative in my lounge room looking at bills and checking footy scores – and find that the inspiration to write comes from those few quiet hours in a hotel room on tour, the airport transit lounge or the long bus ride. This is where I can reflect and put those experiences into lyrics. I’ve travelled most of my life so really, they’re like letters home.”
