About The Event
Contemporary UK blues-rock band, Albany Down, came together with some classic rock and Brit blues-rock influences, but with their 2011 debut album, ‘South of the City, they found their own sound.
Albany Down is Paul Turley on vocals and guitars, new drummer and backing vocalist, Pete Hancock and bassist and backing vocalist Ben Atkins. The band has recorded 3 Studio albums with producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, INME, Super Furry Animals).
"These guys are really going somewhere; make sure they take you with them!" - Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
Blues Rock Review offered a fair assessment of both the band and their debut album: “South of the City” is a solid debut album from Albany Down and they will be an interesting band to watch develop in the coming years”.
The band’s big Zeppelin-influenced sound draws from the same British blues-rock well, that gave Zeppelin a head start all those years ago and later was rediscovered by Joe Bonamassa. But it’s the resonant substance of the band’s own songs and their exuberant style that gives the music its edge.
“We all came to the band with different but related musical influences” says founder member Paul Turley. “ I wanted to build on those and write and play music that was all our own and really ‘now’. We enjoyed working with Greg and he has undoubtedly enabled us to expand both our musical horizons and our self confidence in trying out new things.”
Albany Down are a band that runs on pure adrenalin, unrelenting energy and raw emotion. Rock blogger Neil Mach probably got it right, when he described the band; "As hot as volcanic ash and yet as cool as snow slippers."
