Stevie Nimmo — blues rock guitarist, singer-songwriter, and one half of The Nimmo Brothers — is playing across the country in support of his second solo album.
‘Sky Won’t Fall’, out on 4 March 2016, follows 2010’s acoustic ‘The Wynds Of Life’ and will be supported by a four-month co-headline national tour with Ben Poole that includes a London show at The Half Moon in Putney on 11 February.
The new album was recorded over 10 days between Nimmo’s touring commitments with The Nimmo Brothers, the blues-rock outfit he and younger brother Alan (of King King fame) formed in the late ‘90s.
“It was a bit frantic,” admits the Glaswegian musician. “But even with all the madness, the project went very well.”
Recorded at Superfly Studios in Nottingham, ‘Sky Won’t Fall’ features Nimmo’s touring band, drummer Craig Bacon and bassist Mat Beable, and production from King King drummer Wayne Proctor.
“Wayne was the man in charge of getting my ideas out of my head and down on a recording,” explains Nimmo. “Not an easy task, but he nailed it.”
