Featuring Steve Cradock
Iconic soul songstress PP Arnold will be joined by Ocean Colour Scene guitarist Steve Craddock when she performs at The Sub Rooms.
‘First Lady of Soul’ P P Arnold will perform an unmissable night of powerful soul classics from her solo career including “The First Cut is the Deepest”, “Angel of the Morning” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” at The Sub Rooms.
Having started her career in California in the 1960s as a backing singer for Ike and Tina Turner, Arnold struck up an unlikely friendship with Mick Jagger while on tour with the Rolling Stones – which saw him convince her to start her own solo career.
Her bold move paid off, and over an incredible five-decade career singer P P Arnold has worked musical legends such as Jagger, the Small Faces, Rod Stewart, Barry Gibb and Eric Clapton, to Nick Drake, Peter Gabriel, Roger Waters, the KLF, Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene and Primal Scream.
Arnold has already been delighting audiences with her extraordinary back-catalogues at sell-out concerts all over the country – with long term admirers and collaborator Paul Weller spotted at her recent gig in London.
She will also be playing tracks from her forthcoming album The New Adventures Of PP Arnold, to be released by earMusic on 9 August.
The new double album is produced by another longtime collaborator, Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock, at his Kundalini Studio in Devon. It features contributions from Weller, the Specials, PP’s songwriting son Kodzo and others.
This very special evening with P P is set to be an unmissable night of music for anyone with a heart for Britain’s rich musical history – expect an evening of stunning soul and jaw-dropping vocals.
