Preview: Billy Lockett at The Joiners, Southampton (05/11/2014)


Northampton singer songwriter Billy Lockett, whose latest single ‘Old Man’ is an ode to his late father, is on his biggest headline tour across UK and Ireland. Lockett is playing at The Joiners before heading to London’s Tabernacle Arts Centre the next night to end the tour. Lockett’s third EP, under the same title of his latest single, has reached no. 38 on the iTunes Album Chart a week after its release, making him the only unsigned artist to hold a position in the UK Top 100. Lockett has also supported KT Tunstall, Nina Nesbitt, Lana Del Rey and Birdy.

‘Old Man’ gained radio play on BBC Radio 1 with Greg James describing the track as “An absolutely beautiful new song from Billy Lockett, a guy I think is very talented.” There is plenty of soul and emotion on offer from his music, combined with meaningful lyrics, especially in aforementioned ‘Old Man’ and ‘Your Love Hurts’, and with his clever guitar and keyboard composition on top, it will be a night of beautiful music.

Support on the tour will come from Blackpool singer songwriter Karima Francis.
