Win Joe Stilgoe’s ‘New Songs for Old Souls’ CD

Joe Stilgoe’s ‘New Songs for Old Souls’ CD

Joe Stilgoe, is the renaissance man of modern jazz. He is a pianist, a jazz musician and a singer/songwriter. Joe has a new album, 'New Songs For Old Souls' - which is to be released April 27thon Linn Records.

The album consists of 12 songs with ten originals by Joe, including three thrilling big band numbers: ‘Nobody Cares Like Me’, ‘Pocket Song’ and a new version of ‘Gold On Silver’, previously heard on his last album 'Songs On Film Live'. Joe also duets with Liane Carroll on a wistful cover of Brian Wilson’s ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times’, one of the album’s two non-original songs.

Of 'New Songs for Old Souls', he says: "It's modern nostalgia, it's me looking back to all the great music that has influenced and inspired me - from the 40s, the 50s, the 60s - but then fitting that influence into the modern day to make a modern sound. There is a hint of retro here, definitely, but what I'm trying to make is new music for a new audience."        

The album release coincides with his first major West End stage role, in Kevin Spacey’s ‘High Society’ at the Old Vic Theatre - from April 30th - August 22nd. Directed by Olivier Award-winning Maria Friedman, Joe will be performing in a role that has been specially created for him.

"It's a dream job in many ways, I suppose, and I'll be playing to my perfect audience: people who like a bit of nostalgia, a little swing, and a lot of authenticity."
