Singer/songwriter and Wilco collaborator Billy Bragg has just released a new album, “Tooth & Nail” on March 18th. Not including his work on the “Mermaid Avenue” trilogy, the album will be his first in five years. The album was inspired by, of all things, a tweet. After one of his fans referred to Bragg as, “the sherpa of heartache, guiding us all up the hill,” Bragg decided to turn his songwriting chops toward the plight of the personal rather than his usual realm of politics.

“Most people, when they hear my name, think of polemical anthems born in struggle,” Bragg said in a news release. “I often find myself having to remind people that I am also the Sherpa of Heartbreak, writing songs about the struggle to maintain our relationships with those we love the most.”

It’s been over a quarter century since Billy Bragg took the stage for his first solo gig at North London Polytechnic. Since then our Billy has traveled the world and spoken to everybody twice. He has recorded hit singles, composed Top Ten albums, penned political anthems sung at rallies, kept alive traditional English folk songs, put his own spin on America’s greatest folk catalog and sung his heart out doing so. He has appeared on both MTV and late night highbrow chat shows, singing his mind on the first and speaking his mind on the latter. Building a career which has shaped the face of alternative folk-rock across the globe.

We can't wait to see what he has to bring to us next!

Kim Churchill
Kim's style is explosive, with intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with an earthy stomp box, powerful harmonica melodies and soulful voice. His songwriting reflects his coastal lifestyle – growing up on the East Coast of Australia, with the surf at his front door - and his new nomadic life on the road.
