Our Song of the Day comes via a video premiere for the bristling country honky-tonk and old-time swing number Please Louise. It’s the first single from Daniel Meade & The Flying Mules forthcoming album ‘Let Me Off At The Bottom‘. The video was shot on film by the good folks at Shootback.
This, Meade’s third album, is the first he has made with The Flying Mules and is also his first to be released on At The Helm (May 27th 2016).
DanielMeade came to our attention in 2014 when he supported Vikesh Kapoor with Paul declaring him ‘one to watch’ (read his review here). Shortly after that gig he was supporting Sturgill Simpson where he also went down a treat.
The following year saw Meade and The Mules complete two successful headline UK Tours, a sell out nationwide tour opening for Pokey LaFarge and once again being invited to perform live on the BBC as part of the highly successful ‘BBC at The Quay’ sessions in Glasgow. Meade also undertook a two week solo stint in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium opening for and backing Diana Jones.
The Flying Mules are made up of Lloyd Reid on electric guitar, Mark Ferrie on double bass and Thomas Sutherland on the drums. The album was recorded live (for the most part) at the legendary CaVa Studios in Glasgow and mixed by Morgan Jahnig over in Tennessee.
2016 promises to be another great year, with slots already booked at ‘Kilkenny Rhythm and Roots Festival,’ ‘Maverick Festival’, ‘Eden Festival’ and ‘Americana Festival 2016’ amongst others, and a solo UK tour in April, once again in support of Diana Jones.
