The songwriter and guitarist Tyler Childers is from Kentucky and has musical roots in bluegrass, the folk music of the Appalachians and southern rock. When he was 19 years old, he made his first album Bottles and Bibles (2011). The quantum shift came in 2017 with his album Purgatory, which will be released in Europe on 5 January 2018. Recorded in Nashville, produced by Sturgill Simpson and with Johnny Cash’s engineer David Ferguson on the knobs, the album streaked straight to the top of the hit lists, and put his name on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “10 new country singers, you have to know.”

Fine songwriting, excellent story-telling, and a voice that hooks into your memory, all these are in Tyler Childers’ possession. He relates that he had been searching for a particular sound for his album. He discovered it through Sturgill Simpson. “I wanted that raw, unsophisticated mountain sound. But at the same time it had to be a more modern version, for a younger generation, the people I grew up with; something I would listen to myself.” This will be Tyler Childers’ only Danish concert in the summer of 2018.
