Andrew Stockdale returns to us with a surge of creativity in the shape of Keep Moving, his first self-produced studio album, under his own name.
The former Wolfmother frontman said he decided to strike out on his own because he didn't feel comfortable playing in his old outfit.
“When you write a song, what’s on your mind comes out, what’s in your heart and soul comes out. It’s about your life experiences," he said.
"I’ve been getting stuff off my chest, expressing ideas and experiences that are personal to me and I don’t want to keep then applying that to the Wolfmother name. I had pressure on my shoulders.”
Recorded in Nashville, his band is made up of Ian Peres (Bass, Keys); Vin Steele (Rhythm Guitar); Elliott Hammond (Wurly, Harp); Hamish Rosser (Drums); Will Rockwell-Scott (Drums) and Dave Atkins (Recording and Drums).
The first single, “Long Way To Go,” is out now as a 4-track EP.
The album Keep Moving is out June 7.
"I’ve been an Andrew Stockdale fan since the first time I head Wolfmother’s "Woman". I’ve been loving hearing "Long Way To Go" on the Ms and jumped at the chance to review Keep Moving," said Triple M Music Jury member Adriana.
"This whole album is pure Stockdale, with his distinctive voice, guitar work and classic rock influences like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. For my money, I’m happy with that as that’s what attracted me to his music from the beginning.
"Songs like "Long Way To Go", "Meridian" and "She’s a Motorhead" were stand outs – "Meridian" had me dancing at my desk from first listen.
"Lyric-wise it can get pretty 'out there', but it’s a fun listen. The whole album is catchy and easy to listen to. I get the feeling it would be amazing to see performed live, so look out for the opportunity."
