As part of a number of influential and original bands Frank Turner And The Sleeping Souls, Unbelievable Truth, Dive Dive, Nigel has been part of wave of cultish bands which have broken through to mainstream success but his most intimate, poignant and thought provoking creative outlet can be found in this solo musical vehicle.

And live, the sparseness and intimate nature of the songs will be on show to their full extent as The Sad Song Co. live show filters Nigel’s songs down to their core. With only himself, and occasional help from long-term collaborator Jason Moulster, each show reveals the depth of songwriting without the churning sands atop the root of the songs. It also allows us to enjoy the warm charm of their creator, who remains modest throughout.

Nigel says: “It’s always interesting playing live because while I love producing records, this strips things down and gets to the heart of the songs.The new songs especially have many layers and it’s educational to peel them back and find what’s driving it all underneath.

It’s also terrifying! I play hundreds of gigs every year as a drummer – confident in my abilities – but put me up front and it’s far more nerve-racking.”
