Robin Trower Soon to Release New CD...
Coming Closer To The Day

Robin Trower’s upcoming CD, Coming Closer To The Day, is set for US release on March 22, 2019 and Robin heads out on a US tour shortly thereafter.



It looks like this album will go a long way to further Robin's well-earned reputation as a music legend, judging from a pre-release review:

The calibre of the songwriting on Coming Closer To The Day is matched by Trower’s performances, with the bandleader handling all instruments except the drums. His basslines are supple and rhythmic, his vocals growl and soar (“I think I’m getting better at picking keys to sing in”) and the lead guitar work only adds to his reputation as an all-time-great soloist. “When I’m working on a song idea,” he says, “it has to be something I’d really like to play lead guitar on, otherwise I don’t bother with it. In terms of the lead guitar, I tried to make it as soulful as possible. With the solos, I’ve got a rough idea of the area that a piece of lead work will work in. Then I just go in and see what happens. There’s always a certain amount of freedom. It’s loose and relaxed, messing about and trying different things. I’m trying to capture something that happens, rather than something that’s pre-worked out. It’s got to come from the gut.”

Acting on artistic instincts – rather than bowing to market forces – might not be a fashionable or profitable approach in the modern music industry. But in 2019, it’s a philosophy that is driving Trower’s late career to new creative heights, as the bluesman tightens his grip on the long-term fans who fell for his classic ’70s work, while reeling in younger music-lovers who crave something honest and unvarnished in the age of artifice. “I think that I’m drawing much more from my roots now,” he considers, “rather than shying away from them. I’m not worried about what the music is – or what people might think of it. I’m just doing this out of the sheer joy of doing it. My passion for guitar now is stronger than ever. It’s still a great thrill, just to play...”

Stay tuned for pre-purchase info...
