TUMBLEWEED Frontman RICHIE LEWIS Drops Second Single From Solo Project RICHIE WEED

Share This:

Richie Weed (the moniker of Tumbleweed frontman Richie Lewis) has announced the release of his debut solo album Strays, and with it gives a second taste of the record in the form of the new single Lady Of Avalon.

Scheduled for release on May 24, Richie says of Strays, “I was compelled to make this album because I wanted to make something that was authentically me, I had been writing songs over the last couple of years that didn’t suit Tumbleweed, they didn’t fit the mould, all these songs that didn’t have a home, they were like a collection of strays and I wanted to give them a home.”

Richie recruited an array of friends to play as part of his live band with core members Natalie De Silver (The Dandelion) on guitar, flute and organ, long-time collaborator Matt Houston on bass, and fellow Tumbleweed member Steve Obrien on drums. They were joined in the studio for the album recording by guests Luke Spook (The Pinheads) on pedal steel and Mellotron, Damien Lane and Jolyon Pagett (Dropping Honey) on backing vocals and Karl Webber (The Pink Fits/The Escarpment) on harmonica.
