Dan Patlansky digs deep ahead of London return

Dan Patlansky is building further anticipation ahead of his return to London with his latest music video.

Filmed on location in his native South Africa, ‘Fetch Your Spade’ features the blues-rock singer and guitarist performing the second single of his ‘Dear Silence Thieves’ album in a sweeping, barren landscape.

Patlansky, who launched his latest album with a sell-out show at London’s The Borderline in April, is back in the capital with two shows in November and December.

On 10 November 2015 he’s at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo as the special guest on Joe Satriani’s UK Shockwave Tour. And on 5 December the musician featured as one of “The Bluesmen” in Classic Rock magazine’s “Class of 2015” is back at The Borderline for a headline show, with special guest Aaron Keylock.

Tickets for the nine-date Shockwave tour, which also includes stops at cities like Manchester, Birmingham,Cardiff, and Sheffield, are available at ticketline.co.uk (0844 888 9991).

Patlansky’s show at The Borderline is now on sale at The Gig Cartel, and the 24-hour ticket hotline 0844 478 0898.

The Fender-endorsed musician, who first picked up the guitar at the age of 15, has continued to refine his sound since his 1999 debut, ‘Standing At The Station’.

“Every album I do moves in a slightly different direction. When I started out I was just doing classic blues – the old-school middle-of-the-road thing – and that was great and I still love that,” says the man who cites Stevie Ray Vaughn as one of his original influences.

“I’m now doing more of a blues-rock type of thing. Everything I do is always rooted in the blues, but I like to kind of borrow from other genres – a bit of the classic rock thing, a bit of the jazz thing – and it’s just fantastic to mix all that up, especially when you’re writing, and see what comes out.”
