Drummer Nigel Powell is presenting his set of intricate and emotional songs in Bristol, as part of his project The Sad Song Co.

Powell, a drummer for Frank Turner And The Sleeping Souls, and ex-Unbelievable Truth, has worked with Jason Moulster to create a set of stripped-back songs.

Powell said: “It’s always interesting playing live because while I love producing records, this strips things down and gets to the heart of the songs.

“The new songs especially have many layers and it’s educational to peel them back and find what’s driving it all underneath.

“It’s also terrifying. I play hundreds of gigs every year as a drummer – confident in my abilities – but put me up front and it’s far more nerve-racking.”

The Sad Song Co will perform at Exchange, in Old Market Street, Bristol, on February 14 at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £6.50, are available from www.exchangebristol.com
