Tour Alaska is the solo project of A Plastic Rose frontman Gerry Norman. This solo expedition is a chance for the Sligo raised artist to show a more mellow side by swapping distorted guitars and screaming vocals for the stripped-back sound of acoustic guitar, piano and intermittent strings from local violinist Jordan Farndell.
Lyrically and musically, it’s an intimate experience for both performer and audience, exploring depression, loss, the past, and how love and determination can bring you back to joy.
He has been working in the farmyard surroundings of Phil d’Alton’s Hill House Studio, producing his debut album which will be out later in the year on independent Belfast label Third Bar, with the first single ‘I Bit The Bullet’ available now on all streaming and digital retail platforms.
A Plastic Rose have released two critically acclaimed albums, ‘Camera.Shutter.Life’ and ‘Flickering Light Of An Inner War’ through Third Bar, and are regarded as one of Northern Ireland’s most celebrated alternative rock bands.
Norman has toured all over the UK, Ireland and Europe multiple times including arena tours supporting Snow Patrol, Biffy Clyro and Twenty One Pilots.
