The Hanging Stars announce select number of shows for August and October18-06-2021
The Hanging Stars channel the sounds of The Byrds, Big Star and The Flying Burrito Brothers with hints of Mojave 3 and The Allah Las – mainlining the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes. The band is comprised of songwriter, singer and guitarist Richard Olson (Eighteenth Day of May / The See See), Sam Ferman (The Light Shines) on bass, Paulie Cobra on drums, Patrick Ralla (The Alan Tyler Show) on banjo, guitar, keyboards and assorted instruments, with pedal steel courtesy of Joe Harvey-Whyte.
The Hanging Stars released their third album of beautifully crafted Cosmic Americana, A New Kind of Sky, in February 2020, winning four-star reviews from Uncut Magazine, Shindig Magazine and The Times and receiving radio play by BBC 6 Music (Gideon Coe) and BBC Radio 2 (Bob Harris).
