Fans of the seriously talented Philadelphia songwriter BC Camplight - real name: Brian Christinzio - might be wondering what happened to the singer and keyboard player after he disappeared from the scene in 2011.
Recalling his last days in Philadelphia before moving across the pond, Christinzio had this to say, via email. "My life fell apart a bit and I became known as a guy who blew it. I left Philly in 2011 and moved to Manchester. I was just turning into a not so great guy and had grown disillusioned with the music business. I felt that if I got out of Philly maybe I could rededicate myself to writing and recording an album that couldn't be ignored."
After getting attention in England with a single called "Thieves In Antigua" in 2012, two months ago, Christinzio signed with Bella Union, who will release How To Die In The North, which Christinzio calls "without a doubt the record I've been waiting my whole life to make," this coming winter. He'll be touring throughout Europe and the U.S. through 2015.
