Living in a burning house
ALLIGATOR (AL 4999 02)
Whipsmart songwriter, electrifying guitarist and lap steel player, and gruff, commanding vocalist Selwyn Birchwood is one of the blues’ brightest young
stars. His third album amazes with potent rhythms, startlingly fresh lyrics and jaw-dropping musicianship. Selwyn’s first two releases, 2014’s Don’t Call No Ambulance and 2017’s Pick Your Poison have scanned over 16,000 units combined.
A tireless live performer, Selwyn has logged over 150 dates a year since his 2014 debut, burning up club, theatre and festival stages in the U.S., UK, Canada, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Spain, Russia and Poland. Dates in support of the new release will begin as soon as they are feasible.
Produced by Grammy winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Susan Tedeschi), Living In A Burning House is a master class in distinctive, contemporary roots music and positively brimming with instantly catchy lyrics, undeniable grooves and some of the most exhilarating guitar playing in any genre. Thirteen compelling originals include horn-fueled declarations of love, rocking reflections on modern life and low and slow ballads, all bound by Selwyn’s raw, urgent vocals.
