One of the UK’s leading songwriters and former frontman of The Verve, Richard Ashcroft has been announced as a Special Guest at Belsonic 2018 alongside Liam Gallagher and Louis Berry at Ormeau Park, Belfast on June 16th.
Richard Ashcroft’s “These People” was released in 2016, the first new album in six years from the Brit and Ivor Novello award winning and Grammy nominated artist. Recorded in London, it included the singles “Hold On” & “This is How it Feels”, as well as marking a reunion with Will Malone, who worked with Richard on the string arrangements on the seminal albums by “The Verve A Northern Soul” (1995), “Urban Hymns”(1997), and his platinum-selling and critically acclaimed debut solo album “Alone with Everybody” (2000).
Liverpool’s rising star Louis Berry will bring his unique style of rock n roll tracks to Belfast. His song “Restless” blew up last year, while his debut track “.45” was named Radio 1’s Hottest Record in the World.
