It starts with the flick of a switch. Then a squeal of feedback. Finally, the mother of all blues-rock riffs rises from the white noise, and Sky Won't Fall races out of the blocks in style. If the prospect of a new solo album from this titan of the British music scene didn't already have your undivided attention, then thirty seconds into Chains Of Hope, Stevie Nimmo has you by the lapels. Released in 2016 on Manhaton, it's a curious realisation that Sky Won't Fall is only the second solo album of Stevie's decorated career. In mitigation, the Glaswegian bandleader has been busy: since the late-'90s, there has been the small matter of helming legendary blues-rock outfit The Nimmo Brothers alongside younger sibling Alan. Indeed, Sky Won't Fall was recorded in just ten days snatched between Nimmo tour commitments.
