Chuck Ragan performances in Utrecht and Tilburg this June25-04-2014
Chuck Ragan’s bracing new release 'Till Midnight' once again confirms what the iconoclastic singer-songwriter’s fans have known all along: that he’s a deeply compelling songwriter and an effortlessly charismatic performer, as well as a true believer in music’s ability to illuminate and inspire. Today we're happy to announce two Dutch shows in June - on sale tomorrow (April 26th, 10:00):
09-06-2014: Utrecht (NL) @ De Helling
15-06-2014: Tilburg (NL) @ 013
Hear Chuck Ragan's rootsy new album 'Till Midnight' on Rolling Stone Magazine by clicking here. And in case you missed it, Noisey premiered their new episode of Sound Off! with Andrew Seward and he went fishing with Chuck! Worth checking this episode:
'Till Midnight'‘s ten typically impassioned new Ragan compositions embody the artist’s trademark mix of eloquent lyrical insight and catchy, forceful songcraft. The album’s formidable blend of head and heart is reflected on such new tunes as “Something May Catch Fire,” “Vagabond,” “Non Typical,” “Bedroll Lullaby” and “Wake With You,” on which Ragan applies his distinctively raspy voice and sharp melodic sensibility to vividly expressive tunes that reflect both his early grounding in traditional American music and his deep affinity for rock n’ roll. The album was recently released (March 25th) on SideOneDummy Records.
On this European tour Chuck and his band will be joined by Northcote and Billy The Kid as supports. Matt Goud (aka Northcote) may take you by surprise when he steps up to the mic. Though the soft-spoken Goud is known by friends and family as a gentle giant, he infuses his original songs with a uniquely powerful and confident voice. Billy The Kid is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has collaborated with such artists as Garth Hudson (The Band/Bob Dylan), Randy Cooke (Ringo Starr/Dave Stewart) Stan Behrens (Willie Dixon/Ruth Brown/the Four Tops) and just recently, producer Jamie Candiloro.
