- Acoustic/ Country/ Indie
"Chris Helme, who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’ released his most recent solo album - ‘The Rookery’ - in August 2012. Still rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics ‘Love Is The Law’ and ‘Blinded By The Sun’ - songs that evoked everything the ‘90s stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance. Present day societal context may well in fact mirror those times but the man himself, now, appears cut from an entirely different cloth.
Helme’s is an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it’s his latest offering The Rookery’s knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme’s keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages resonate even more deeply. The Rookery was produced with Sam Forrest (Nine Black Alps)."
