The Gracious Losers

— Gracious Losers Shop —

Glasgow based 9-piece, lead by songwriter Jonathan Lilley, featuring members of Sister John, Thrum, God Help the Girl, The Parsonage, Sporting Hero and the Berie Big Band.

Their debut album ‘The Last Of The Gracious Losers‘ combines the celtic soul sensibilities of early 70’s Van Morrison with the interplay and prowess of Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Eight tracks dripping in classic songwriting and musicianship. The vinyl edition features a gatefold sleeve, designed by none of other than graphics legend Sean Philips (Marvel, DC, 2000AD etc).

Recorded over three years and produced by Jonathan and long time friend Johnny Smillie, it features singles ‘Where the River Meets the Sea’ and ‘Moonlight Parade’, alongside stand-out tracks ‘Hey, I’m Riding Low’ and ‘I Can Never Read the Signs’.
