HENRY'S FUNERAL SHOE TO RELEASE NEW "DONKEY JACKET" LP OCT. 11TH!
Comprised of brothers Aled and Brennig Clifford, this second offering evokes images of the Deep South, rather than the Welsh Valleys from which they hail.
Donkey Jacket features a number of guest appearances from a plethora of acclaimed musicians, including long time Van Morrison collaborator John ‘Ned’ Edwards on harmonica, slide guitar and mandolin, Pete Hurley of legendary '70s Welsh band Lone Star on bass, and Justin Beynon of the Broken Vinyl Club on keys. The album was recorded in Wales with Tim Hammill at the helm, while mixing duties were undertaken by Jim Diamond (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Go) in Detroit.
Taking its name from the coat worn by Welsh miners, Donkey Jacket is a collection of rousing numbers ranging from the hard-hitting "Love Is A Fever" and "Anvil & Chains," to their contrasting softer side on acoustic-driven tracks such as "Heart on Fire" and "Across The Sky."
