Lins Honeyman: Penny Lyon on Gospel Blues Train

This Friday, 23 February from 8.00pm, The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman features an exclusive interview with Penny Lyon – lead singer with in-demand Gloucestershire band Out Of The Ashes. 

Pioneered by Penny and her husband Kevin Washburn, the band recently released their third album – the well-received ‘Fears, Secrets & Lies’ which featured guest appearances from the Blues Band’s Paul Jones and Human League’s Josh Cana, and their sound can be described as jazz, R&B and swing with gospel roots.

Through story and song, they aim to communicate something of the daily experiences Christians face as well as the hope that God has a plan for us all.

Lins caught up with Penny during their recent Scottish tour.

The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman, Friday 23 February 8.00-9.00pm; repeated Saturday 24 February 7.00pm; Tuesday 27 February 10.00pm and Catch Up anytime.

TTBA Album of the Month: The Waterboys

Ian Arbuckle has chosen the new CD album from The Waterboys as his featured album during January 2018 on his ‘Turn The Beat Around’ programme on 100.8 Revival FM.

The Waterboys have released their brand-new studio double album Out Of All This Blue; their first for BMG Records, with whom they recently signed.

Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo, Out Of All This Blue is available on double CD and double vinyl, plus deluxe triple CD, including bonus tracks, and deluxe triple vinyl, including bonus tracks and in digital.

Out Of All This Blue is The Waterboys most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott’s trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk and underpinned by modern hip-hop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective.

Mike Scott says of the record: “Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, 1/3 stories and observations.  I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me – and I hope the listener – the songs just kept coming, and in pop colours.”

Turn The Beat Around with Ian Arbuckle, Wednesday 10 January, 8.00-10.00pm; repeated Saturday 13 January, 3.00-5.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.
