The Liverpool six-piece, The Heavy North, play their biggest headline show to date on Friday 1st December to celebrate the release of the band’s second studio album, ‘Delta Shakedown’.
Following the success of their sold-out headline show at the Arts Club Liverpool last year, the blues rock band will perform as a 12-piece band at the Camp and Furnace in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, featuring the Northern String Quartet, backing singers Rosalie Galvin and Molly Fryo, trumpet player Lozza Taylor and saxophonist Ste Powell.
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jay Lewis (Cast, The Zutons, The La’s, Cracatilla), Wirral 4-piece Ambedo Blue, and local folk singer-songwriter Ellis Murphy will also perform with The Heavy North.
The Heavy North has completed a UK tour, performed in Spain and Gibraltar, and appeared at the sold-out Kendal Calling Festival in the Lake District this year.
The band’s recent singles ‘Where Are You Now?’, ‘Round Again’ and ‘Give A Little Love’have attracted regular airplay from BBC Radio 2’s The Rock Show, Radio X and BBC Introducing, as well as the band’s sound being described as “absolutely brilliant” by legendary actor and new music champion Robert Carlyle MBE.
Formed in 2018, The Heavy North released their debut 4-track EP ‘Dive Bar Blues’ in December 2020 followed by the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Electric Soul Machine’ in April 2022. The band feature Kenny Stuart (singer), Jose Ibanez(producer and guitarist), Andrew Horrock (bass player), Ste Penn (keys player), Mark Rice (drummer) and Jack Birch (guitarist).
The Heavy North’s show kicks off a month-long festive programme of Christmas events at the Camp and Furnace in the heart of the Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
