Martin Harley – Harley, Kimbro, Lewis

This project has
been slow cooking for nearly a decade. It’s something we’ve all been working
towards and now finally we have a window to take this show on theroad. We
approached it in the spirit of ‘The Band’. We'd write songs in the morning,
recording them in the afternoon, swap instruments and just keep the tapes
rolling. ”

Since their chance
meeting in Nashville 2011 the three have collaborated with one another in
different formats. Individually each has travelled the world pursing their own
musical endeavours and now for the first time they are joining forces as a
single unit.

The trio’s debut
album (set for release 2021) features a collection of original material
recorded in Nashville. Martin Harley has created a significant impression on
the blues, roots and Americana scene that can easily be measured by a growing
global demand to attend his live shows, which include a full house at London's
Union Chapel.


He has toured
extensively worldwide, released and co-produced eight independent albums. In
2019 Music Radar ranked him #5 in the world’s greatest blues guitarist poll.
Total Guitar Magazine, rated him as one of the world’s greatest acoustic
guitarists, he was nominated as Instrumentalist of the Year at the Americana
Music Association Awards and the Guardian described him as “Spellbinding”.
Raised on American Roots music in and around Appalachia, Daniel Kimbro is a
GRAMMY-nominated musician from Knoxville, TN with numerous recording credits
and touring appearances. Splitting his time between Knoxville and Nashville,
Daniel is a member of the Jerry Douglas Band, the Earls of Leicester, and the
Transatlantic Sessions, and has appeared on stage with the likes of James
Taylor, Alison Krauss, Sir Aly Bain, Cara Dillon,R.B. Morris, Maura O'Connell,
and many others.

Nashville based
singer-songwriter Sam Lewis has collaborated with everyone from Leon Russell to
Chris Stapleton who dubbed him “a modern Townes Van Zandt”. Lewis is often
labelled with the word ‘soulful’ and a style that meets at a juncture of many
different genres; a place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary.
A decade worth of touring his studio efforts (mostly solo) have captivated
audiences all around the world. His songs and stories are glued together with a
unique stage banter developed from performing in numerous music halls, clubs,
theatres, festivals and music cruises.
