Scottish singer/songwriter Fish, known for his work with Marillion, has just announced a string of U.S. dates in support of his new solo CD 13th Star. It is the artist’s first U.S. tour in 10 years.
13th Star is being deemed as his best solo work ever by the press.
"...a meditation on loss, the emotional resonance of songs such as ‘Arc Of The Curve' making this his strongest work since his late '80s Marillion swansong Clutching At Straws."writes Paul Elliott in the April 2008 issue of Q magazine.
Fish came to public’s attention in the 80s as the lead singer of Marillion, recording four successful CDs with the band. In 1988, he left Marillion and began his solo career, which has resulted in nine studio albums and many other live recordings.
"Being 50 years old and being told your new album is the best you've ever made is tremendous. It destroys the philosophy that your best work as a rock musician has to be when you're 19 and naive," Fish recently told What’s On Southwest. "This is my 13th record and my 26th year in the business, and that's something a lot of other people can only fantasize about, so I know I am lucky."
