Pat Tierney releases ‘Red Moon’
North Coast NSW based lap slide guitarist and roots troubadour Pat Tierney embraces a tender, ruminative reflection on love and loss with his latest album Red Moon and an accompanying national tour. Dark folk overtones and a weissenborn guitar acts as the seed of the album, driving the songs to come together.
‘Tierney was tight and accomplished as he brought his brand of roots to those starting their Friday night early. I’d definitely look at investing some time into discovering Pat Tierney.’ The AU Review
Embodying that folk and roots space with a little bit of soul Tierney is a true songwriter and poet, bringing an old school approach with modern tales of love, loss, hope and social justice. Having recently returned from his U.S. tour through California and San Francisco Red Moon marks a turning point in Tierney’s development as an artist.
“I’ve dived pretty deeply into my being to present these songs. It was just time to strip some of those shields and walls away that we all tend to put up. I got to a point where, I knew if I was going to be a genuine, real singer-songwriter with something to say, I had to lay it all out and show more of myself. The recording process really taught me a lot about who I am and where I want to take my music. It’s been a blessing.” Pat Tierney
Recorded high on a mountain top amongst the beautiful hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, the new album dives deeply into the earthy folk tones of Bob Dylan and Neil Young whilst shining a brighter light on Tierney’s signature slide guitar sound and unique voice. Produced by roots music maestro Pauli B, the album was recorded over the past 18 months at Yama-Nui Studio and will be the follow up to Tierney’s 2015 debut album, Wild World Blues.
Red Moon follows a big 12 months for Tierney, who recently embarked on his debut shows in the United States, supported the likes of Aussie rock legend Russell Morris, roots-reggae lords, The Beautiful Girls, and released the first two singles from the upcoming album to great success with features on Double J, Triple J and the 2019 Surfline film ‘The Art Of Scoring’.
