My last blog entry was almost 6 months ago. I’d feel more contrite about that if I hadn’t been busy doing. It’s the old blogger’s cliché – when you’re doing stuff worth writing about you’re too busy drowning in it to acually write about it. This has probably been the busiest 6 months of my life, a perfect storm of preproduction and recording sessions, and fighting to get the tracking done before we resumed gigging earlier this year. We didn’t quite make it, but hey. We’re not saving lives here. In the meantime me and Hannah bought our first house, which some say is stressful. I wouldn’t know, I was too stressed to notice.
Captain Horizon are to feature on two dates of the Jo Burt Experience Summer 2012 UK Tour.
You will be able to see Captain Horizon supporting Jo Burt on Thursday 31st May at The Portland Arms in Cambridge and Friday 18th May at the Fighting Cocks in Kingston. Tickets are available from seetickets.com.
“Jo Burt knows a thing or two about delivering kick-ass music. Following an illustrious career playing bass with bands such as Sector 27, Black Sabbath, Virginia Wolf, Bob Geldof and then late Freddie Mercury, Jo assembled a formidable band to focus on what is his most personal music yet.
The line-up of The Jo Burt Experience also includes drummer Andy Treacey (Faithless, Dido, Moby, Robbie Williams, Groove Armada, Tom Robinson) and guitarist Dzal Martin (The Equals, Terry Reid, Tom Robinson, Van Morrison, Meatloaf). Prepare yourself for some imaginative melodic rock & acoustic ballads in the British tradition and a great live experience.
The Jo Burt Experience spent the last few years gigging within the UK and occasionally in mainland Europe, all the while finetuning their craft. This summer the band ups the ante on the gigging circuit with a handful of UK dates. Then, without waiting to catch their breath, in July the band then crosses the pond over to Canada for another set of live dates. This is going to be a huge year for the band!
