ames Litherland was featured guitarist with John Hiseman's legendary prog psych jazz rock tour de force Colosseum, playing on the critically acclaimed debut LP 'Those Who Are About to Die Salute You' and it's equally fondly remembered follow up 'Valentyne Suite'. Both have recently been reissued via Cherry Red Records. James is launching his eagerly anticipated new solo album 'Back N Blue' this evening. In addition to Colosseum James Litherland has played / worked with some of the most important figures in rock music history including George Martin, Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart, Pete Brown (Cream Lyricist), Alexis Korner, Steve Marriott, , Finbar Fury, Mick Taylor, Cliff Williams (AC/DC), Graham Broad (Roger Waters / Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings), John Wetton (King Crimson / Roxy Music / Asia) and is of course the father of James Blake whose song The Wilhelm Scream was taken from Where To Turn which is on the 4th Estate Album. Natalie Shay- Brit School educated singer songwriter with a sweet but lofty take on the post Tori Amos/Tracy Chapman soulful observationist songwriter approach. Really good. Has the press to back it up. Certainly a great talent you should arrive early for.
