"This music is honest and revealing with depth and a feeling of mysterious purposes – the hair on your arms may stand up as you absorb this goodness" – Big Takeover Magazine
Bristol indie music legend Davey Woodward has announced his new album 'Love and Optimism', together with his congenial band The Winter Orphans. Best known for his bands The Brilliant Corners, The Experimental Pop Band and Karen, this output was recorded "live" in the studio. This album is very personal and perhaps Woodward's most emotional performance, putting Davey solidly amongst the best songwriters of his generation.
Love & Optimism is the band’s second following their self titled debut released in 2018 on Tapete Records.
“I I grew up and have lived in Bristol for most of my life. I use the city as a backdrop to many of my songs. Often I go into some detail about places. Roads and the people of the city. It has always inhabited my songs. ‘Love & Optimism’ continues my fascination with the city”.
Davey Woodward first came to prominence with his 1980s band The Brilliant Corners, part of the jangly indie C86 scene, but with a diverse palette of indie pop, country,rock n roll, pos-punk and humour. The mini albums ‘Growing Up Absurd, Fruit Machine and What’s In A Word’ was followed by their best known album ‘Somebody Up There Likes Me (1987), several John Peel sessions, indie chart success and regular tours. In 2013 Cherry Red Records released a retrospective of the band’s work ‘Heart On Your Sleeve’ (A decade in pop 1983-1993).
Woddward’s next band The Experimental Pop Band (1996-2012) was also championed by Peel and signed to City Slang Records.
In the last decade, Davey has released a handful of solo lps, including the lofi folk pop album ‘6 Miles East Of Here 5 Miles North Of Nowhere (2011) and also recorded with alt guitar band Karen releasing several Eps on The Environmental Sounds label.
