first_imgDoyle Bramhall II, the decorated singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer, and son of Austin, TX music legend Doyle Bramhall, is getting ready to release his fifth solo album, Shades, due for an October 5th release. This week, Bramhall has shared the third single from the LP (after “Love and Pain” and “Searching for Love”) featuring guitar legend Eric Clapton, one of the many iconic artists with whom he’s worked closely with throughout his career.The sultry tune harkens back to a retro soul/R&B aesthetic, highlighted by Bramhall’s emotive lead vocals, gospel-style choral accompaniment. The song builds to a climax behind a guitar solo standoff between Bramhall and Clapton, who shows why he’s still one of the greatest guitarists on the planet with his searing riffs.

Chesters can secure a win double in Colombia

first_img6 Jan 2014 Chesters can secure a win double in Colombia European Amateur champion Ashley Chesters (Hawkstone Park, Shropshire & Herefordshire) has the chance to conquer another Continent later this month. The 24 year old has been selected along with Paul Howard (Southport & Ainsdale, Lancashire), Nick Marsh (Huddersfield, Yorkshire) and Jimmy Mullen (Royal North Devon) to contest the South American Amateur Championship at Barranquilla County Club in Colombia on 22nd – 25th January, an event supported by The R&A since 2005. Chesters (image copyright Tom Ward Photography) won the European title by one stroke from Spain’s David Morago at El Prat last August. So his selection means the England international, who finished eighth on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf Order of Merit last year, has the chance to emulate Callum Shinkwin, now a professional, who brought the South American crown back to England a year ago. Howard made his full England debut in last year’s winning Home Internationals team at Ganton, which capped a successful 2013 for the 23 year old. He finished fifth in the Welsh Open Stroke Play Championship and equal ninth in the St Andrews Links Trophy and helped Lancashire win the County Championship, winning five of his six games. Marsh also made his full England debut at Ganton having reached the quarter finals of the Amateur Championship and finished tied fifth in the Chiberta Grand Prix in France. The 19 year old also finished runner-up in the North of England Youths and the Welsh Open Youths Championships and was ninth on the EG 2013 Order of Merit. Mullen, 20, was another England debutant at Ganton in a season in which he lost a playoff for the Bernard Darwin Salver, finished tied third in the Brabazon Trophy, achieving a hole-in-one during the final round, and equal fourth in the South East of England Links Championship. Like Howard, he won five of his six games during the County Championship finals at Minchinhampton representing Devon. The South American Amateur Championship is a 72-hole stroke play event.last_img read more
