Acclaimed musician Robin Trower has announced a concert date in Chester ahead of the release of his hotly anticipated new album Something’s About To Change.
Trower will be coming to The Live Rooms in Chester on April 2, with special guest Joanne Shaw Taylor, to promote the new album which is released on March 9.
He worked alongside long-standing producer Livingstone Brown at Studio 91 in Newbury with a band that featured Chris Taggart on drums and Luke Smith on organ.
Trower, of course, has plenty of peaks to choose from in his six-decade career. Hailing from Southend, he hit the London circuit of the early-’60s with fledgling R&B group The Paramounts, but it was his 1967 arrival in the line-up of Procol Harum that made his guitar work headline news.
Trower then quit the British heavyweights to score his first solo hit with 1974’s Bridge Of Sighs - an album that made him a household name in the States and still sells an annual 15,000 copies in modern times.
The ’90s saw him partner Bryan Ferry on the well-received Taxi and Mamouna albums, while his collaborative nature led to post-millennial alchemy alongside Jack Bruce on 2008’s Seven Moons.
