Academy Charmers 15/5/17
All roads led to London's O2 Academy Islington last night to see Snakecharmer as they continued their eleven date UK tour showcasing their new album 'Second Skin', which was released last Friday. Excellently supported by both Rebecca Downes and Knock Out Kaine, the band featured Simon McBride on lead guitar, bass guitarist Neil Murray, guitarist Laurie Wisefield (Wishbone Ash), drummer Harry James (Thunder, Magnum), keyboardist Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne) and vocalist Chris Ousey (Heartland). Slightly harder edged compared to their debut, but with roots still firmly planted in Bad Company, early Whitesnake and a hint of late 70's AOR, their set was strong, passionate, rocking and Blues-laden.
