Robert Plant’s Saving Grace, the co-operative featuring Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone, acoustic guitar), and Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic, baritone guitars, cuatro) have today announced a full UK tour in November 2023. Starting in Brighton on Wednesday 1st November, Saving Grace will tour some of the UK’s most striking theatres.

Since forming in 2019, Saving Grace have received numerous acclaims for their live shows with Bob Harris describing it as ‘One of the best gigs I’ve seen in years’ and Toni Woodward, Americana UK providing a perfect summary: “…These five musicians have produced a supreme ninety minutes of music with considered interpretations of others’ compositions, ensuring they present an innovative exploration of the songs whilst maintaining their true essence. Furthermore, this odyssey has been undertaken in the spirit of appreciation, musicianship, and exultation: they truly are a band of joy!”.

Following their incredible live shows, Saving Grace have just announced their first ever track release – “As I Roved Out”. As a thank you to ticket buyers for the upcoming tour, fans will receive an exclusive free download link to the track on their ticket confirmation upon purchase.

Joining the tour as special guest will be singer, songwriter and musician Taylor McCall. The South Carolina native began his musical journey at age 7 after finding his grandfather’s guitar that was stashed under the bed. Taylor dove headfirst into mastering the instrument, completely self-taught. At 17, the songs that he put together for his debut EPs were testament to his talent as both musician and songwriter: with captivating tracks “Jericho Rose”, “Quartermaster” and “Waccamaw Drive” garnering his 26 million plays to date in his top 10.

Appropriately, it’s his grandfather’s voice that opens Taylor’s striking debut album, Black Powder Soul which was released in 2021. Produced by Sean McConnell (Michael Franti, Wade Bowen), Black Powder Soul is the product of a winding musical journey for McCall and his own sense of unique musicianship-incorporating self-taught styles.
