Geordie rock hero Ginger Wildheart is about to start his ‘Song and Words’ tour, a spoken word and acoustic tour which sees the cult icon tell tales which span 20 years.
This tour is in support of Ginger’s GASS project – a multi tier fan club for followers of the red-haired singer. By signing up you gain access to exclusive content including a year’s supply of songs (36 in all). See http://g-a-s-s.co/main/ for more.
The tour also supports the pledge for his ‘Song and Words’ book – http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/gingerwildheartsongsandwords
Ginger himself had this to say:
“I decided to write a book being as many of the accounts of The Wildhearts turbulent career have since turned into the stuff of traumatic myth and titanic legend, this way I can put the story straight using descriptions of the songs themselves and the life and times behind them.
The story, however, goes much deeper than merely The Wildhearts, and descends into a solo career that marks the darkest times of my life and the truly tragic depths of my tale.
Ending on a career high as my 555% Pledge campaign shot my stagnant life as a struggling songwriter air bound to unprecedented levels of success, this is a tale of redemption, self discovery and, ultimately, battling the odds and winning on my own terms.”
