“Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Sandi Thom, widely recognised for her million selling debut ‘Smile…It Confuses People’ will make a Live Concert DVD at the newly refurbished Historic Tivoli Theatre in Aberdeen during her UK tour in April. Hot off the heels of the release of her 5th album, the Classic Rock covers album, simply entitled ‘The Covers Collection, the DVD will be released in Autumn 2014.
Thom’s latest release, a covers album, which consists of stripped back versions of some of classic rocks greatest hits including a stunning rendition of Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Rain Song’, a heart wrenching take on the Nine Inch Nails ‘Hurt’ and her wonderfully original version of ‘November Rain’ by Guns N Roses which has already clocked 120,000 views on you tube and is set to become a viral hit.
WATCH NOVEMBER RAIN:
In the eight years since Sandi Thom first burst on to the music scene she has released 5 albums, one of which was a collaboration with Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson and received wide critical acclaim.
America’s Huffington Post called it “Fierce and Honest”.
She has collectively sold in excess of one million records, been nominated for a Brit , won a Digital Music Award, won Album Of The Year at the Scottish Music Awards with her 3rd studio album, and been given an Ivor Novello Award for excellence in songwriting.
Having successfully founded her own record company in 2008, she orchestrated a ground breaking deal with the major distributor In Grooves Fontana in 2011, secured an admin deal with Sony ATV in 2012 for her publishing company, whose writers include former MCA Artist Rebekah Ryan and founded a boutique booking agency responsible for all of Thom’s upcoming 2014 tour dates in the UK, North America, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Europe. She has also acted as a distributor for many releases including most recently the debut album of Eminem’s D-12 band member Kuniva.
It would appear many underestimated Thom’s staying power in this industry and having dumbfounded her critics with her undying commitment, she has actually, quietly and consistently, become one of the most innovative and successful Independent artists around today.
After a successful run of 2013 tour dates in the UK, Scandinavia, Australia, China & North America, including two nights at the legendary Iridium Jazz Club in New York City, home of the late, great Les Paul, Thom is now pleased to announce a UK Tour for Spring 2014.
The highlight of the tour will be at Thom’s home town of Aberdeen, Scotland where she is set to film an “in the round” DVD with well-known confirmed guests. Thom is set to thrill UK audiences with her spectacular ‘One woman show” which sees her play a number of instruments including piano, guitar and Harmonica as well as wow crowds with her powerful vocals.
The tour is set to begin in April, and will stretch out across the month, expecting to draw dedicated UK fans to venues such as The Sage, Gateshead, The Tivoli Theatre, Aberdeen, and Nottingham Arts Theatre, Nottingham.
