Single out February 17th 2015, taken from excellent upcoming album ‘I’m Not Here’
Based in the North West of England but with the roots driven country soul of the USA’s deep south, Dave Fidler is a songwriter who puts a contemporary spin on the traditions of country-folk. With influences including Bob Dylan, Tommy Emmanuel and Peter Green, his style is defined by his unique vocal and intricate slide guitar with superb finger picking and country touches.
For a sneak preview of the single, and a show of his superb dexterity on the acoustic guitar, check out the track on Soundcloud:
Produced by Sam Jones (Alex Turner, Corinne Bailey Rae) and John Bramwell of I Am Kloot, the full album promised to be packed full of top quality tunes like this from a very talented songwriter indeed. Dave Fidler is already building an excellent reputation among some of the top cult bands in the industry, and with further singles on the way he looks likely to continue in that vein.
He has already toured with and supported the likes of John Bramwell (I Am Kloot), who describes Fidler as “absolutely brilliant”, Little Mammoths (Noah & the Whale), Simone Felice (Felice Brothers), Kathryn Williams and David Ford. He has also been featured several times by key tastemaker Tom Robinson of BBC Radio 6 Music and recently played alongside Gomez, Badly Drawn Boy, Turin Brakes, Tim Burgess and Dodgy at Manchester’s Whisky Sessions festival.
