US troubadour James Apollo arrived on UK shores late last week for a nine date UK tour in the run up to the release of his new album ‘Born Lucky’ on 11th April 2011 through Marterry Music. He plays London's Bull & Gate tomorrow night.
In the summer of 2010, James Apollo released his British debut ‘Til Your Feet Bleed’ and he now follows that with ‘Born Lucky’, a career-spanning compilation that ducks and weaves through his extensive back catalogue, stretching back over six prolific years. ‘Born Lucky’ is a record that sweeps through the emotions, both fleeting and fundamental, that document the bittersweet, cinematic legacy of both Apollo’s past, and his ongoing journey - Americana at its most romantically sunset-strewn and desolate.
Hailing from Libertyville, Arkansas, but yet to fully establish where home really is, James Apollo is one of life’s romantic, true journeymen. Rolling up the Mississippi before he could register his first emotion, it is a life drawn out upon a well-worn, coffee-stained map of the States.
James Apollo remaining dates:
18th February – The Bull & Gate, London (Club Fandango)
19th February – The Emperor, Cambridge
20th February – Hamptons Bar, Southampton
21st February – Freud, Oxford
