Birmingham music legend Simon Fowler is set to launch his new solo project with an intimate show at Birmingham’s Glee Club on Tuesday 17 April.
Best know as lead vocalist and guitarist with Britpoppers Ocean Colour Scene, Fowler has also provided backing vocals for ‘Modfather’ Paul Weller and folk artist Kate Rusby.
Glee Club music promoter Markus Sargeant said: “We have very fond memories of when Simon previously played The Glee with Oscar and we were thrilled to be offered the hometown launch show of his new solo project.”
“Simon is the latest in a long line of remarkably talented artists to play our intimate Studio room, and this is a rare opportunity for fans to witness a multi-million selling artist at close quarters.”
Ocean Colour Scene are one of the most successful bands to have come out of the Britpop explosion of the mid-nineties, famously knocking Oasis’ Be Here Now off the UK Album Chart top spot with 1997 record Marchin’ Already. Popular hits include ‘The Day We Caught The Train’ and TFI Friday intro track ‘The Riverboat Song’.
