“…this was just the most gravity pulling night, the most scintillating adventure. Paul Dunbar & The Black Winter Band have set a new high in the way that you listen to songs.” Liverpool Sound & Vision on PDTBWB at Liverpool Philharmonic 2018
Dunbar and the band release rock / blues epic ‘Made My Peace With You’ as a stand-alone single from the titled full length, packed with cool, razor sharp rock grooves, huge virtuoso vocals and colossal guitar licks, riffs and solos, the lead single promises to deliver a huge punch of edgy, retro rock with a modern, fresh edge reminiscent of The Black Keys and Bruce Springsteen.
‘Hands Down’ takes a different approach in the way of a dark, brooding and poetic love letter with deep haunting vocals, reverb drenched guitars and gospel choirs with flashes of Nick Cave and Tom Waits. The track also features Norwegian native, Liverpool / Manchester based songstress Camilla Sky on vocals along with Rida ZM on Flamenco Acoustic Guitar.
The single release show will also feature Liverpool, 90’s influenced, Americana band The Buffalo Riot and other special guests, including special guest DJ’s.
