We’re excited to announce that the renowned Jim White will be making his rare and much-anticipated return to Brighton!
Since the tail end of the nineties Florida-born Jim has been writing and performing intermittently, with records like Wrong Eyed Jesus and Transnormal Skiperoo earning him much critical acclaim, helping him to carve out a dedicated international fanbase. The alt-country maverick’s latest album Where It Hits You is among the most powerful and emotionally devastating releases of his career, a cathartic masterpiece written in a period of great personal trauma, and it will no doubt be doubly potent in front of a live audience.
Known for both his genre bending records and his role as narrator/guide of the award winning BBC documentary film Searching For The Wrong Eyed Jesus, Jim’s an eternally restless soul. New album Where It Hits You ranges from a brooding dreamlike opener, ‘Chase The Dark Away’, to the wild eyed stomp of ‘Here We Go’, to the Beefheartesque ‘Infinite Mind’, to the Harvest-era Neil Young ringer ‘My Brother’s Keeper’, finding him in full musical and poetical stride.
Don’t miss this opportunity to catch this legend of the American South in person: his tours are few and far between, and his performances never anything less than unforgettable.
“There’s always room for the real thing, and you’ll know it when it hits you” ★★★★ – INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
