PORCHLIGHT SMOKER are proud to announce the London launch show for their new album, Porchlight Smoker 4, at Green Note on 23 March.
Maverick Magazine have just given the album a 5-star review: ‘the musicianship and lyrics are first class on this album as Americana meets Celtic rock and much else in between’.
Porchlight Smoker play a wealth of acoustic instruments like mandolin, dobro, banjo, lap-steel, double-bass, harmonica – even clarinet. Three lead singers – Scott Smith, from Wichita, Kansas, Steve Bell from Dundee and London-born Fred Gregory – bring their international mix of vocal and songwriting styles together to form the band’s unique sound.
‘Multi-instrumentalists, soaring four-way harmonies, and a rail-road worn doghouse bass means that these boys are guaranteed to send you home with a smile on your face!‘ Portsmouth News
A timeless record, fusing elements of folk, bluegrass and country. Not every day you hear so many instruments played – guitar, banjo, mandolin, double bass, sparse percussion and even a jew’s harp. Lots of strings. I like that Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
Water Into Sand is an absolute gem; sunshine music from the South Coast. Porchlight Smoker are a lovely band Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
