This album has grown from Shaky's realisation that, like most of us, he knew so very little about the background of his family - the stories of his ancestors' loves and lives lost, and their struggles to survive. Research revealed tales of poverty and strife in the Cornish copper mines, of bravery and loss in war, of philanthropic preachers and stoic Salvationists, of children suffering and of family secrets and feuds.
Blues, roots, Americana and classic rock take centre stage on this surprising record.

Shakin' Stevens announces his long-awaited return - to tour in Germany for the first time in more than three decades. He will be performing a seven date tour, commencing 10th February 2019. The platinum-selling International Artist will be joined by his 9-piece band to perform fan favourites, surprises, and, of course, his much-loved hits including, 'Marie, Marie', 'Oh Julie' and 'This Ole House', together with songs from throughout his career.
"Of course there'll be hits and some songs that I haven't performed on stage for a decade or two! I've also included well-known songs from other artists whose work I admire, together with album tracks and newer songs, bringing it right up to date! From country rock to Cajun, classic rock to Latin, and blues to Americana. I can't wait to get back on the road and to have a great time with the audiences in Germany. "
When Stevens last toured the UK, with his hit twelth Studio album, his new material was well received by the media and, importantly, his loyal fan base, together with those newly attracted by the Blues, roots, Americana and Classic Rock of the album.
Shaky has always believed you should be in touch with your audience, and he was reminded that, as well as his newer material, there is still a big call for the songs that originally made him famous, and brought him International acclaim. So he went back into the studio, and as a result, this is what he had to tell us...
"I've been going through my catalogue of songs in preparation for the tour, and re-introducing myself to the many and varied styles of music I've recorded during my solo career. From country rock to Cajun, classic rock to Latin, and blues to Americana I've had the pleasure of re-discovering the "jewels" from my repertoire that are so well-liked. Of course there'll be hits, some songs that I haven't performed live on stage for a decade or two….so some surprises! I've also included well-known songs from other artists whose work I admire, together with album tracks and newer songs, bringing it right up to date! I can't wait to get back on the road and to have a great time with the audiences."
So join us, to relive those memories, and make those all important new ones!
