Mark Chadwick has announced details of his debut solo album, entitled “All The Pieces”, to be released through Stay By Records on 6 September 2010, and a 10 date UK tour in October.
Mark Chadwick has fronted The Levellers for nearly 25 years and has co-written 20 chart singles and 6 Top 40 albums (including a Number 1) as part of The Levellers.
“All The Pieces” is, to all intents and purposes, Mark Chadwick telling the story of his own life, in his own words. Presented chronologically, it charts the highs and lows of his extraordinary life, encompassing life-altering events such as attending Elephant Fayre which helped shaped his political views, falling in (and subsequently out of) love, through to his later disillusion with both mainstream and radical politics. This album shows a side of Mark Chadwick’s song-writing and personality that up to now he has largely kept out of the public eye. Honest and heartfelt, yet highly accessible and endearingly upbeat, All The Pieces shares many of its hallmarks with the great folk revival albums of the 60’s and early 70’s. Anyone expecting a Levellers sound-alike album will be disappointed, but those with an ear for beautifully produced acoustic-pop, great melodies and engaging lyrics will most certainly not.
Mark Chadwick’s October tour goes on sale on 12 July. He will be joined on tour by a band featuring guest musicians plus support to be announced.
