PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone)

David Migden & The Twisted Roots play Maidstone again at one of the best venues in Kent - PizzaExpress Music Room. This unique 5 piece take American Roots Music and twist it into their own sound. Beefheart, Little Feat, John Spencer Blues Explosion and Tom Waits are some of their influences. They will be featuring new material mixed in with old favourites. This  promises to be an exciting evening of truly original music. 

“With his amazingly beautiful voice, Midgen seduces the listener – luring him into his musical kingdom, supported at all times by a band of incredibly accomplished musicians who seem to have mastered a dozen instruments between them! The clear and warm sound of this analog production, like the album itself, leaves nothing to be desired.”

Classic Rock Magazine (Germany)

"Voodoo blues? Jazz-inflected soul? Whatever you call it, the quintet’s current release Animal & Man is a gem. Every tune is laced with compelling imagery and chock full of atmosphere. The playing is top-notch without once going over-the-top and the production lets it all shine through – above all, Migden’s soulful voice, which is almost too pretty for the blues. This brilliantly executed album belongs in the hands of anyone for whom music is the ultimate medicine.”
