Album release: Chasing The Night by Rupert Stroud
Release date: May 21 2012

Chasing The Night is Leeds singer/songwriter Rupert Stroud’s accomplished follow up to his debut album. Mixing alternative, indie, rock and acoustic sounds the album is confident in its eclecticisms. It truly showcases his versatility as a writer and highlights his growing maturity as an artist.

Rupert began writing his debut self titled album in 2008, backing it up with regional tour dates. By 2009 he had found eminent British producer Will Jackson (a member of 80’s band Magna Carta. Will’s previous credits include The Kaiser Chiefs, Embrace, The Cribs, The Music… to name a few).  After listening to Rupert’s music, Will was adamant in bringing him into the studio to record. Yet it was only a tentative step towards this, the highly refined and gripping follow up album.

Chasing The Night offers impressive, beat driven arrangements that are dynamic, inventive and at times sweetly intimate. The lyrics on this semi autobiographical record are emotive and thought provoking while Stroud’s vocals are captivating, compelling and dextrous.

Rupert and his band (drums Mick Bedford; keys and guitar Mike Pearson) are playing the gig circuit with the album and it is receiving a great deal of attention - the band have done several live lounge appearances and radio interviews with BBC DJs; they have also been invited to play Live at Leeds 2012 alongside an incredible line up including Marina and the Diamonds, Los Campesinos, Reverend and The Makers, The Subways and Ladyhawke.
