Steve Cradock releases his new album Travel Wild-Travel Free via Proper Records.
A founding member of the iconic Britpop band Ocean Colour Scene and guitarist for Paul Weller since 1992, the Solihull native has long been regarded as one of Britain’s most talented musicians and a part of the country’s musical heritage
The record radiates relevant retro as a 21st century ode to Sixties psychedelia. From the get go, dreamy opener “Any Way The Wind Blows” immerses us in an exploration of sounds in the best of British musical tradition.
Steve’s skilled song writing and expert multi-instrumentalism are evident on tracks such as “Sheer Inertia” and “Travel Wild – Travel Free”. This record is a true labour of love from a man who clearly knows how to write and use catchy hooks, hip vibes and lush melodies.
“Third and best solo excursion from the Weller/Ocean Colour Scene multi-instrumentalist…enchanting psych/baroque…and not a guitar solo in sight” Mojo **** 4 Stars
