SNOWY WHITE AND THE WHITE FLAMES release new album ‘The Situation’ on 19th April.
18 months after his last long-player, ‘Reunited’, the acclaimed British guitarist presents his new album containing 12 new tracks. Once again, Snowy called on his musical collaborators and friends, including Max Middleton (piano/keys), Ferry Langendrijk (keys), Jessica Lauren(keys), Kuma Harada (bass), Walter Latupeirissa (bass), Juan van Emmerloot (drums) and Jeff Allen (drums).
Since the late 1960s, Snowy and his characteristic guitar-playing have made their mark on tasteful blues rock. Whether as a member of Thin Lizzy (on the albums ’Chinatown’ and ’Renegade’), working with Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac), as an indispensable tour musician for Pink Floyd and later Roger Waters, or as a highly-respected solo artist: Snowy has always remained true to his love for excellent, handmade music.
Snowy White on his new album:
“The Situation. These songs are my expression of where I was in 2018… up and down, good and bad, weak and strong – it’s all here…just doing my thing as usual, enjoying playing with all my musician friends. The Situation – well, we’re all in a ‘situation’ of some kind or another. This Feeling – when did I lose it? Time passes and we all see changes in ourselves. LA Skip – Venice Beach in LA, watching the jugglers as the sun went down and the air cooled. We Can’t Seem To Do Much About It – hmmm, well, maybe that’s a bit defeatist, but things do seem to be getting out of control. Crazy Situation Blues – got the blues in my heart most of the time, that’s just the way it is. Blues In My Reflection – someone somewhere out there loves me? I wonder… So, Why Do I Still Have The Blues? – Good question. But one thing I do know is that You Can’t Take It With You – so better make the most of it while you can. I need a change of direction maybe? Migration – a new environment, could do the trick. It’s hard out there though, can’t always trust what you hear, plenty of people playing The Lying Game. Well, we can only make the most of things, go through these Hard Blues and hope to come out the other side in one piece. As for the future, getting older, some hard times coming and, honestly, I Can’t Imagine how it’s going to be…”
