If you loved The Middle East, and miss their folk style musings, then you will be pleased to hear that lead singer Jordan Ireland has started a solo project called Stolen Violin, and is once again taking it to the road this August.
Having released a elegantly eclectic folk album called ‘Short Cuts to True Love’ last year, there is much to like, as that familiar voice and mystical drowning guitars creates a sound that melts the ears, and is sure to draw many to his impending gigs. It is very similar in sound to The Middle East, but having played such a key role in the creative aspect of that band it is inevitable that some similarities will come through. However, as a huge fan I am more than happy to hear those shared nuances. Check out the tour dates here.
