Announced seemingly out of the blue and a pleasant surprise to many, with a new album on the way in May, BC Camplight is well and truly, back. An American singer-songwriter who’s a local resident, he has a strong connection to Manchester, so it only feels fitting that one of his biggest shows to date will be at Albert Hall, on the 17th of November!
What’s the connection to our city? Well, back in 2008, Brian ‘BC Camplight’ Christinzio was recommended a move from Philadelphia to Manchester by a friend, in order to escape his intensifying alcohol and drug addictions. The move led to his debut album for Bella Union, How To Die In The North; though just two days before it was released in 2014, he was deported. Back in the UK (with an Italian passport), he made Deportation Blues but just days before it was released in 2016, his father died, triggering a breakdown that inspired Shortly After Takeoff, the last part of what Christinzio calls his Manchester Trilogy.
Now he’s back with The Last Rotation Of Earth!
