Music programme featuring sessions from contemporary and classic artists. Guests include Twin Atlantic, James Vincent McMorrow, Blackberry Smoke, Madeleine Peyroux and Tom Chaplin.
Joining Jools on the fourth show of the series are Glasgow rock band Twin Atlantic, who are making their Later... debut following their recently released fourth album GLA. Received with critical and commercial success, it sees them pay homage to their hometown with songs that are snappy and packed full of gigantic drums and thrilling guitar riffs.
Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow has reinvented himself for his third album We Move, which finds him baring his soul and his unique falsetto in the fractured R&B and trip hop territory of the likes of The Weeknd. Nu skool old school southern rock comes from Georgia's Blackberry Smoke, who are about to release their fifth album of road-tested country flecked southern boogie and rock 'n' roll, Like An Arrow.
French-American chanteuse Madeleine Peyroux returns to the show with songs from her new album of standards and covers Secular Hymns, which finds her working in a live trio with guitarist Jon Herington and bassist Barak Mori, who blend with Peyroux's smoky voice with sensitivity and swing.
Returning to the show as a solo artist is Tom Chaplin, known for being the frontman of the hugely successful British band Keane. Following their hiatus which began in 2013, Chaplin is on the cusp of releasing his debut album The Wave - a collection of songs he has written or co-written, many of which address his personal struggle with darkness and addiction but that maintain the soaring and anthemic sound for which he is renowned.
Also on the show is one of the UK's most exciting gospel and soul rooted R&B singer-songwriters, Tony Momrelle. Known as one of the vocalists in Incognito, Momrelle also has a solo career and treats us to a performance at the piano with a track from his current album Keep Pushing.
