Birmingham-based/ Wolverhampton-born songwriter Dan Whitehouse concludes a busy year with his annual Christmas concert on Thursday 20 December 2018 at Newhampton Arts Centre, Wolverhampton.
The gig will see Dan, who has this year been on tour with The Little Unsaid, Gretchen Peters and Brumbeat legend Roy Wood, team up with writer, producer and label-mate Boo Hewerdine, as both artists perform separately, as well as together.
Says Dan: “I’ll be playing some new material from my forthcoming album produced by Boo as well as joining Boo on some of his material and playing songs from previous albums too. We promise collaboration, celebration and festive joy!”
Signed to Reveal Records (Joan As Police Woman, Lau), Dan is currently working on his next album – due for release later in 2019 and produced by Boo Hewerdine.
Having dropped live versions of The State Of The English (with guest Emily Barker) and The Aerial View (with synth player Tom Livemore and vocalist Harriet Harkcom) online, early indications point to a more experimental release from Dan, who picked up Best Folk/ Country Artist at the Birmingham Music Awards 2018 and has been described as playing “Black Country Soul.”
Boo came to prominence in the late-1980s with The Bible, going on to make his name as a solo artist, songwriter and producer. He’s currently preparing a new album and continuing to work with both Eddi Reader and Chris Difford.
Says Dan: “I always look forward to playing my hometown especially in December – it’s a great time of year and caps off another rewarding 12 months of making new music and touring.
“I’m especially looking forward to playing with Boo, who is one of my favourite songwriters.”
Dan Whitehouse and Boo Hewerdine play Newhampton Arts Centre (NAC), Wolverhampton, on Thursday 20 December 2018. For more information and tickets, see: www.newhamptonarts.co.uk
