See Ricky Warwick performing tracks from his new double solo album here.
In February this year, Ricky Warwick released a double solo album entitled "When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues) / Hearts On Trees". The first half (When Patsy...) showcases the "electric rock and roll" side of Ricky, whilst "Hearts On Trees" features more stripped-back song writing.
"Hearts On Trees and When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues) were written by myself and my good friend Sam Robinson," said Ricky, "both albums depict our experiences of growing up and coming from the Greater East Belfast area, not only experiences that have happened to us but historical references and stories that have been told to us by friends and family... in saying that both albums translate those experiences on to a global scale that hopefully anyone geographically can relate to."
The album is packed full of guest appearances too, including Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Damon Johnson (Thin Lizzy/Black Star Riders) Andy Cairns (Therapy?), Billy Morrison (Billy Idol), Nathan Connolly (Snow Patrol), Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns (Stiff Little Fingers), Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N’ Roses/The Dead Daisies) and Mark Thwaite (The Mission, Peter Murphy).
"When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues) / Hearts On Trees" is out now on double CD, standard edition vinyl, limited edition vinyl and digital formats. Watch the videos of Ricky Warwick performing tracks from the album, live at Planet Rock, below!
