Lloyd Spiegel ‘This Time Tomorrow’ Tour – New Dates Announced

Australian Blues master and acoustic guitarist extraordinaire Lloyd Spiegel is two months into the tour to launch his new album ‘This Time Tomorrow’ and the ‘sold out’ signs have been hanging on many venue doors thus far.

After such an incredible start, Lloyd is delighted to announce new dates in SA, WA, TAS and a handful of other shows on the east coast, including an added ‘Back by Popular Demand’ performances in Sydney and Melbourne.

‘This Time Tomorrow’ has spent 3 months at #1 of the Australian Blues Radio Airplay chart, peaked at #5 on the ARIA Jazz and Blues Chart, and #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart.

‘This Time Tomorrow’ was written as Lloyd travelled through Europe, Central and North America and delivers driving rhythms that return Spiegel to his gut bucket blues roots. Shady and colourful characters spread out over continents and decades, through places forgotten and familiar. ‘This Time Tomorrow’ is a return in fine form from an artist at the top of his game, and lead track ‘Devil On My Shoulder’ sets the mood of the album right from the get go.

Says Spiegel of the new songs, “I’ve never written at home. I find it hard to be creative in my lounge room looking at bills and checking footy scores – and find that the inspiration to write comes from those few quiet hours in a hotel room on tour, the airport transit lounge or the long bus ride. This is where I can reflect and put those experiences into lyric. I’ve travelled most of my life so really, they’re like letters home.”

It’s been a while since Spiegel’s last studio album – 2010’s Tangled Brew – but he’s been far from idle in that time. He’s toured the world relentlessly, launched his own signature model guitars and has cemented his position as a bona fide festival headliner in Australia, with his recent performance at Bluesfest in Byron Bay the cherry on top.

With European and North American tours under his belt, along with recent showcases at Folk Alliance in Kansas City, the ECMAs in Canada and AMW in Sydney, Spiegel has many years on the road ahead of him.

‘This Time Tomorrow’ is available in stores through Only Blues Music.

“Australian blues and roots icon Lloyd Spiegel, in his first Bluesfest appearance, holds his own full house in the palm of his hand, just him and his trusty Cole Clark, a full swag of songs, a full tote of stories told with humour and aplomb, the man able to make his guitar do anything at all as he tells tales both tall and true, his own superbly written material marrying with blues standards in a way few others are able to manage. The man is a mountain, he’ll surely be back.” – Rolling Stone Magazine

“Spiegel has stamped himself as one of the best songwriters in the country, regardless of genre, of history, of ANYTHING. It’s a powerhouse of brutal honesty.” – Rhythms Magazine

“a guitarist almost without peer … Spiegel deconstructs how the blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door.”
– Australian Guitar Magazine
