Neil Brophy explains about the new album; ‘’True Stories is a bag full of self-penned songs that paint pictures of world travel, revelry, small-town England, record collecting, refugees, propaganda, Vikings, lucky people, fishing & homecoming.’’
The Album takes you on Brophy’s Journey. ‘Road To meo’ is his personal favourite standing alone as his iconic blueprint of life. With Neil’s band of merry men they draw from influences such as Bragg/Dylan singer songwriter styles, McGowen Celtic rock, ‘a slice of Wellerness’ and even flirt with the big pipe sound of William McLaughlin, picking up where Run Rig left off.
