Elbow Frontman Guy Garvey Releasing Debut Solo Album

(Prog) Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has confirmed the release of debut solo album Courting The Squall on October 30. He will also launch a European tour in November, with his live band augmented by Elbow's brass section.

He recorded the initial parts at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios, along with a band he formed from his "favourite musicians outside Elbow" - Pete Jobson of I Am Kloot, Nathan Sudders from The Whip, keyboardist Ben Christophers and drummer Alex Reeves.

Garvey reports that the outfit "moved fast and drank a lot" and focused on recording with minimal overdubs. While his main band is a democracy, the frontman was "firmly and exclusively in the driving seat" for Courting The Squall. See the upcoming tour dates here.
