JOE INNES AND THE CAVALCADE
Joe Innes & The Cavalcade are a post-Brexit indie-folk band from London led by singer/songwriter Joe Innes, whose masterfully offbeat and often irreverent songwriting has gained praise from national radio as well as online, being described as things like “a master of words” by This is Fake DIY and “just brilliant” by Tom Robinson on BBC6.
Joe Innes and the Cavalcade is a labour of love for the lead troubadour. Joe plays solo, but also formed the Cavalcade to be revolving door of musicians to perform with, and has recruited numerous talented musicians over time, including Zach Comtois, Britney Spears’s guitarist who Joe met while touring in Germany.
Their early releases were financed by Joe selling his comic book collection, and subsequent EP “Brian, I’m a Genius Too” was lauded by The Line of Best Fit amongst others for its masterful and confident melody. Then, following a European tour and numerous festivals spots, Joe and the band began work on their upcoming debut album – after a hugely successful crowd funding campaign raised a lot more money than selling comics did.
The new album is a stunningly poignant and relevant piece of work in these uncertain times. It is a document of Joe’s life as it currently is, on both a macro and micro scale. It’s about the artist’s relationships, his mental health and his experience, all framed by the political events of the past year – “it’s how I feel about where I am as a person, as a husband, and as a citizen of the UK in 2017”.
The new album ‘Foreign Domestic Policy’ is out now.
