Dave Sutherland is a London-based Americana country singer-songwriter. An accomplished performer filled with raw energy and emotion, his new album ‘Last Drop of Empty’ is produced by Stacy Parrish, whose work with T Bone Burnett, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant on Raising Sand won him a number of Grammy awards and legendary Jefferson Aiplane/Hot Tuna’s Jack Casady, who also plays bass on the album. Dave met Stacy when headlining at the Troubadour in West London, when talk turned to them working on a record together, Stacy approached his longtime friend Jack Casady to co-produce. A text message to Dave from Stacy simply said: “Jack listened to your voice for less than 5 seconds before saying ‘I’ll do it’”.
Dave’s music speaks of life, love and London with the eye of an artist and the ear of a poet. He released his first record under the guidance of Bert Jansch. His album ‘American Refrigerator’ cemented his popularity in the UK and elevated him Stateside with his US audience often asking ‘How can you speak like this and sing like that?” A state-hopping tour of the US then saw his last album ‘On The Waiting List’ reach No1 on the US Americana charts. He’s taking ‘Last Drop of Empty’ out on the road throughout 2022.
