Ahead of release of new album “The Valley” on 22 November 2019 Charley Crockett brings European tour to the UK!

Charley Crockett’s anticipated new full-length album, “The Valley”, will be released via Thirty Tigers in the UK on the 22 November 2019. In advance of the release, the album’s first singles, “Borrowed Time” and “The Valley” are out now along with the pre-order: https://orcd.co/thevalley

“My story’s wilder than people can make stories up. These songs that I’ve written on this record, it’s all really autobiographical, and they’re about as much depth as I’ve been able to capture writing about myself” says Crockett. Or as he sings atop a rumbling shuffle on “The Way I’m Livin’ (Santa Rosa)”: “If the way I’m living seem like just a mess, believe me I would choose this life over the rest.”

Charley Crockett’s been running nearly his entire life, but with the title track to his sixth album, the Texas songwriter looks back at where he came from. “The Valley” chronicles his hard upbringing on the south Texas border, but it also distills the essence of Crockett’s fierce and restless independence. Recorded just a week before he went under the knife for life-saving open heart surgery in January, the album stirs with an introspection and urgency to tell his story. It’s a story of an artist searching for his place in the world, absorbing the sounds of the country; it’s a story of exile and promise.

Without trying to write something that belongs in a Tinder profile, I’m Jamie: sometimes seen as a bit of a rogue potentially even notorious but all in all I am just an Essex boy that loves iced latte’s and colourful hair accessories with a tendency to continually cause disappointment to my mother and a worry to my therapist as I drink too much! It took me far too long to visit and fall in love with the world’s ultimate pub crawl that is Nashville, TN but prior to my next visit I make the most of the sights and sounds of London’s emerging country music scene.
