Darren Watson - Too Many Millionaires NZ Tour

Veteran bluesman Darren Watson (Chicago Smoke Shop, Midge Marsden Band, Planet Key) is proud to announce the release of Too Many Millionaires, his first all acoustic album, on May Day - Tuesday 1 May, 2018. Watson is also embarking on an 11-date national tour in support of the album throughout May.

Too Many Millionaires is Watson’s sixth album. However it’s the first released to be specifically produced for and manufactured on vinyl. It’s also the first to move away from his trademark stinging electric guitar lines, and slick, modern studio production.

Eschewing modern recording & overdubbing techniques almost altogether, Watson sat in front of valve and ribbon microphones for two days at Wellington’s Surgery Studios last November with only his ‘50s vintage Gibson acoustic guitar and his lived-in voice.

Joined by a handpicked acoustic band including blues harmonica virtuoso Terry Casey, he and the band played ‘live to tape’ through a selection of his newest compositions. The best takes were kept and mixed by multi award-winning engineer Lee Prebble. The result is an immediacy and intimacy that Watson does not think he has captured on any of his previous, more ‘polished’ recordings.

Darren Watson - Too Many Millionaires is performing at the Globe Theatre on Thursday May 10th and we have a DOUBLE PASS and a copy of his new LP to give away.

The competition closes at midnight on Tuesday 1st May and the winner will be announced on Wednesday morning. We will contact you by email and/or phone so make sure you include both with your entry. Only one entry per person. Good luck.
