David Reaches For The Sky! 9 April 2015
Must admit the WRC had to do a double-take seeing David Sinclair on Sky News on Tuesday night discussing the meaning of Don McLean's ‘American Pie’ lyrics which he (Don that is) had just sold for $1.2 million! No doubt the next time we see David and The Sinclair Four will be a special hometown show at The Borderline, London, on Thursday May 14th to celebrate the band’s new album '4' released on Critical Discs/IRL three days earlier. With one foot in the Blues and the other striding through the modern musical metropolis - including contributions from harmonica man Paul Jones, lovers rock legend Maxi Priest and Scottish jazz singer Lorna Reid - it's Sinclair's most storied collection of songs yet. Combining dry, lyrical with a hard-hitting brand of rock ’n ’roll, Sinclair’s group has built a formidable reputation as a live attraction, sharing stages with Wilko Johnson, the Oli Brown Band, Marcus Bonfanti, Johnny Dowd, Graham Bonnet, Willie Nile (UK Tour 2013) and many others.
