"my Darling Clementine" - Michael Weston King & Lou Dalgleish show at The Royal British Legion
"My Darling Clementine" (aka. Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish) have just released their debut album "How Do You Plead" to critical acclaim.
Michael Weston King is widely acknowledged as one of Britain's finest singer-songwriters, admired by the likes of Chris Hillman, Ron Sexsmith, Jackie Leven and the legendary Townes van Zandt (who recorded one of his songs). He draws his influences from a wide range of styles, from Pop to Folk, from Country to Soul, from Gospel to Blues.
He is the former leader of UK Alt Country pioneers "The Good Sons" with whom he made 4 critically acclaimed albums in a seven-year career. MOJO wrote "The band who must rate as Englan's very own Uncle Tupelo..." while
10 albums and countless tours, both solo and with the likes of Nick Cave, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Roger McGuinn and many more have seen MWK becoming recognised as one of our finest songwriters and now he has teamed up with his other half.
Lou Dalgleish, one of the finest female singer in the UK and she is right under the same roof. A dancer and actor, TV and film roles in her 20's, she is a singer-songwriter of outstanding quality who has been praised by, and worked with the likes of Elvis Costello, Bryan Ferry, The Brodsky Quartet, Brian Kennedy and many more. From 1993 - 2000 she released 4 albums that showed off her unique song styling as well as her stunning vocals.
"My Darling Clementine" will be featuring songs from their debut album. Thirteen brand new songs written by King and Dalgleish, of love, seperation, bitterness and acrimony.
"Like Tim Hardin, Phil Ochs or Townes van Zandt, King transmutes squalor and self-laceration into pure gold" MOJO
"She has a complete range of emotions and a power of phrasing that can pluck the heartstrings just as frequently as wrenching them out with a clenched fist" THE INDEPENDENT
