…Dave Hemingway, the soul of The Beautiful South, returns with a new band and a new sound..


Having retired from the live scene at the back end of 2016, Dave Hemingway has been keeping busy with guitarist and songwriter Phil Barton, vocalist violinist Laura Wilcockson and drummer Marc Parnell putting together a new band, with new songs, and a new sound.

The music takes the instrumentation of Americana with a twist of grungy guitars and sets them against lyrics that remain very much at home in the towns and cities of England.

Both the world in general and Dave and Phil’s own individual personal worlds have changed in recent years and these songs document these changes.

The album is available to order below. We’re offering free P&P to UK buyers ONLY from this website.
