Fred Abbott is Classic Rock Magazine Track Of The Week

You may remember Fred Abbott as a member of indie-folksters Noah And The Whale, who split up earlier this year.

Free Download: Fred Abbott’s Funny How Good It Feels

Following yesterday’s premiere in The Guardian, Fred Abbott’s solo debut is now available for free download via Soundcloud.

Fred Abbott will release his debut solo album, Serious Poke, on 20th July. The London-based musician, until now best known as lead guitarist and keyboard player in the recently disbanded Noah And The Whale, previews the album with a free download of the pop-rock gem, Funny How Good It Feels.

A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Fred Abbott joined Noah And The Whale in 2009 and went on to huge success with that group, especially notable being his contribution to 2011‘s Platinum-selling and highly acclaimed Last Night On Earth.

Abbott enlisted the help of his Noah And The Whale compadres and other friends for the recording of Serious Poke, with sessions taking place at West London’s British Grove Studios over the past year. The album was co-produced by Fred with Martin Hollis, whose diverse credits include Grinderman, The Rolling Stones and Take That.

Serious Poke will be released on Lojinx on 20th July.
