Ricky Warwick, who is a great friend of Def Leppard will launch a campaign through PledgeMusic to release two new solo records, which Joe Elliott and Ronan McHugh will assist him in bringing both of these albums to fruition.  Watch Ricky’s  video to learn more about the campaign and pledge HERE

 

Ricky Warwick made his thunderous impact on the music scene in 1988 as front man for one of the UKs darling son bands, The Almighty.  He stepped it up in 2010 when he joined veteran rockers Thin Lizzy, taking over vocal duties from the iconic Phillip Lynott.  When Thin Lizzy evolved into Black Star Riders (BSR) in 2013, Ricky was a keystone to BSR’s success.  In addition, Ricky has also been creating his own solo music for years and has toured all over the world in support of his first three releases.  

 

Ricky will embark on this monumental campaign, creating not one, but two new albums.  The first will be an entirely acoustic album called “Hearts on Trees” who’s theme will be being true to your roots and what people sacrifice for their homes.  The second will be a full on electric rock album Ricky has entitled “When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues).   Ricky adds, “There will not be an acoustic guitar in sight on that one!  As I was writing these songs, they tended to polarize.  Some song were clearly rockers and some tapped into my folk background.  So, why not make two records!”  There will also be a several special guests participating in these releases.  

 

Joe Elliott adds, “Well, it's often said, things go in threes.  So after confirming that we're going to be working together on the BSR second album, I'm thrilled to be able to work with Ricky again on his upcoming two solo albums. Having produced his first two albums it's fair to say we have a great relationship and as friends and fellow musicians that allows us a great opportunity to make some very memorable & important music.”

 

The countdown begins…. Check out the campaign now!
