Having enjoyed success with previous albums the globe-trotting, UK based melodic rock of Sharp Practise makes a welcome return with the launch of fifth album ‘Steal With Pride’.

The ten track album, road tested on a recent British tour, has been written and arranged by Nigel Clothier, the driving force behind Sharp Practise. Nigel explains ‘I write songs as an observer of life, inspiration comes from things that happen around me, things that I see or hear on my travels’.

Stirred by local news coverage of urban riots and a brief comment to a passer-by from the mother of a hoodie, Nigel penned ‘Jog On’ that opens Steal With Pride. The album’s journey continues from the viewpoint of a thoughtful spectator and is brought full circle in the last track ‘Justice’ where Nigel’s inspiration came from the desire for social justice expressed in the Arab Spring.

Nigel’s songs come from everyday life. The look on a child’s face seeing a raunchily dressed girl in the street (Fine Line); crashing at a mate’s house listening to music through the night (Keep It Dark); the power of female influence (Over To Caitlin’s) and the counter point that men too can abstain from acting on their sexual desires (Wish My Girlfriend Was A Vampire).

Nigel explains the Sharp Practise philosophy this way. ‘Telling a story in a lyric is very important to me – I’ve always listened to the stories writers like Phil Lynott, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Finn have told and wanted to make my lyrics capable of standing alone too’

‘Musically I try to keep the song structure simple and accessible while still allowing room for something clever to happen. That might be a guitar solo or three like in ‘Maybe (This Ain’t Right)’ or even a little vocal effect, like the blue note in the second verse of ‘Hard Heart’ on the word “blues”.

In an age of ever expanding musical genres and experimentation Sharp Practise stays true to the melodic rock style that continues to be loved by fans all over the world and which inspires them so much.
