My Darling Clementine
The classic country duets were undoubtedly at their peak in the late '60s and '70s with Johnny Cash & June Carter, George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner among others. Those timeless themes have now been revisited by My Darling Clementine (aka: Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish). After great reviews for their debut How do you Plead? the the follow up The Reconciliation? was released on 1 October.
These are songs of betrayal, regret, anger, guilt, revenge and hurt. But it is that contradiction which draws us to this music: two people sing to each other, about each other, while staring directly into each other's eyes. As listeners we become voyeurs to something so personal, like eavesdropping neighbours tuning into a domestic. We are at once curious, sad, compelled but yet unable to turn away... and it is all made relevant to modern life in the 21st century ("No Matter What Tammy Said,I Won't Stand by Him")
Michael Weston King has been at the forefront of country music over the past 20 years, from his days as a founding father of the British Alt. Country scene with The Good Sons in the '90s.
“As fine a singer songwriter as Gram Parsons” according to former Byrd and Flying Burrito Brother Chris Hillman
“...a voice part Nashville balladeer and part Alt Country hero...a cross between Nick Cave and Rodney Crowell.” The Independent.
Fifteen albums and countless tours, both solo and with the likes of Nick Cave, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Roger McGuinn and many more, have seen MWK becoming recognized as one of our finest songwriters, and now, he has teamed up with his kindred spirit, his other half ... with original songs that recreate the glory days of country duets.
Lou Dalgleish is one of the finest female singers in the UK, and living right under the same roof at Michael. Lou has had a mercurial career to date. A dancer and actor, with TV and film roles to her credit, she is a singer songwriter of outstanding quality, who has been praised by, and worked with, the likes of Elvis Costello, Bryan Ferry, The Brodsky Quartet, Brian Kennedy and many more. From 1993-2000 she released four albums that showed off her unique song styling as well as her stunning vocals.
