SINGER songwriter Will Varley is touring the UK this autumn and will be appearing at Stroud's Brunel Goods Shed on October 26.

Described recently by Donovan as “The next generation”, Varley counts the likes of Billy Bragg, Tim Minchin and Frank Turner amongst his fans.

He celebrated the release of his 5th studio album, "Spirit of Minnie", with a packed out show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in February and spent the first part of this year playing his new album live around the world.

'Spirit Of Minnie’ marks a distinct change of direction for the singer songwriter, recorded for the first time with a full backing band.

Produced by Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Portishead, Neneh Cherry), the new album expands on the pared back musical palette of Varley’s previous sound, all the while retaining his gift for lyric writing.

See Will Varley at Stroud's Brunel Shed on October 26.
