Dave Woodcock and The Dead Comedians –
Omaha High Low
Label: Shotgun Records
Release Date: November 2009
Following on from his debut album Wednesday’s Child, Sheffield singer- songwriter-guitarist Dave Woodcock returns with Omaha High Low. Backed by his Dead Comedians, which include local heroes Chris Murphy (Chris Murphy and The Greenlovers), Lee Bradley (Viva High Rollers), Andrew Wood (Pisco Sour Hour) and Chris Saunders, the album marks a new era in Dave’s long history as part of the Sheffield music scene.
Having already received numerous comparisons to Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Clash and, much closer to home, Richard Hawley, Omaha High Low is an album that combines moments of heartbreak and hope, tenderness and raw emotion. Expect narratives dripping in powerful imagery, driven by Dave’s always-charismatic vocal performances, and superb backing from his highly experienced comedians.
Omaha High Low is due for release in November 2009. Dave Woodcock and The Dead Comedians will be playing the following live date as part of the album’s launch, with more dates to follow in the near future.
Thursday 12th – Sheffield, The Grapes
