Album Notes
Richard Gilpin - 33

"A cracker of an album" (BBC Radio Ulster)

"This kind of talent rarely fades" (Hot Press)

"This is no alt. Country revival, this is the real thing" (Sunday Tribune)

Described as a cross between "Tom Petty, Steve Earle and Ryan Adams" (Belfast Telegraph), Northern Irish singer/songwriter Richard Gilpin releases his second studio album 33.

Following on the success of his debut album 'Beautiful Mistake' in 2002, Richard releases 33, 11 brand new tracks recorded in Valley Studios, in his adopted County Donegal. Co-produced with bassist Michael McGinty and Dutch guitarist Remco Rodrigues, this is a varied album both musically and lyrically. From the electric You've been away too long, the soul in Share these chains with me, to the gentle Man of 33. An engaging album, often personal, always keeping you guessing just what will come next.

33 features Richard and his band with guest appearances by Cathal Hayden (fiddle), Maire Breatnach (backing vocals, violin & viola), Ted Ponsonby (hammond organ), Eddie Lynch (piano)and Liam Bradley (percussion & backing vocals).

The album opens with the powerful, electric Man on the moon and me a personal account of growing up in Belfast over 3 decades. On this track Richard and his band are joined by Cathal Hayden of 'Four Men and a Dog' on fiddle. You Won't let it go is a whimsikal up-tempo acoustic pop/rock song of love and loss with an understated guitar solo and gorgeous backing vocals from Maire Breatnach and Liam Bradley. The album follows with You've been away too long, perhaps reminiscent of Neil Young at his most electric. The album's only cover, a version of James McMurty's Levelland, a reference to a town of the same name in New Mexico, U.S.A., fits right in with the groove of the album. A Stranger to me 'A song I never meant to sing' is how the author describes it and talks of the complex relationship of many children who become estranged from one or both of their parents. Track 6, Secret love, is an up-tempo country rock/pop song with some fine boogie piano playing by Eddie Lynch. Share these chains with me is an epic 6 and a half minutes long blues/soul song which rises and falls, sears with emotion throughout and features the strings of Maire Breatnach. She is free a funky little rock and roll track is followed by the piano ballad Time will tell. Track 10, You bring me love, is a pop rock anthem with a catchy chorus which is bound to leave you singing along. The album concludes with the title track; the beautiful and intimate, Man of 33.

A hugely impressive follow up to 'Beautiful Mistake', 33 is sure to become one of the most memorable releases of 2003/2004.

Richard has a nationwide tour planned in November 2003 & January 2004; catch him and his band at a venue near you!
