Late Night FDL: Medicine Man
The Kid can jam…
Following support slots with Blackberry Smoke, Cadillac 3 and The Graveltones, Aaron Keylock has announced his first headline London show.
The 17-year-old guitar prodigy will play the Black Heart in Camden on February 10 – and it comes ahead of his appearance at this year’s TeamRock-sponsored Ramblin’ Man Fair. He’ll take to the Blues Stage at the two-day event in Kent on the weekend of July 25 & 26.
Keylock released the track Medicine Man in November and hopes to launch his debut album later this year – although in an interview in this month’s Blues Magazine, he says he won’t be rushed into releasing fresh material.
He says: “I want to keep the sound as close as possible to how we sound live, so we need the same players. We’ve been doing some demos and we’re still writing. I have an album’s worth of material, we’ve got a long live set, but it’s about picking songs that fit.
“I want songs that represent me and the songs keep on getting stronger, so I want to keep writing and making sure we have the best stuff. You want to have a big impact with your first album. It’s all high-energy, raw 70s’ rock ’n’ roll.”
Hippo Birdies to Elvis, David Bowie, and Prof. Hawkings…!
What’s on your mind tonite…?
