Band Crush – Frank Turner On Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun

Frank Turner reveals his new band tip for 2012, Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun:

There’s a band called Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun who are from Cheltenham. I’ve known them for a while now and I think they’re gonna smash it in 2012. It’s acoustic guitar-led but with a band; to be honest it’s not exactly a million miles away from the sort of music I’m doing but it’s in country rock territory. If that sounds up your street then have listen to their song ‘England is Dead’. The songwriting is amazing, and their album sounds brilliant too.
