Brophy's Law - True Stories
With his celtic rock outfit, “Brophy’s Law” - based in Copenhagen, but originally from England, Scotland and the northern-most tip of Denmark, Neil Brophy performs his songs that draw influences from Bragg & Dylan’s singer songwriter styles of social commentary, McGowen’s Celtic rock, a slice of Weller with a haunt of NMA.
The new album from Brophy’s Law “True Stories” is a bag full of self-penned songs that paint pictures of world travel, revelry, small-town England, record collecting, refugees, propaganda, vikings, lucky people, fishing & homecoming.

"This is one of the best records I have played this year, the whole album is outstanding, it's fantastic, I can’t begin to tell you how fantastic it is”
True Stories is a rare breed of an album that captures the energy a truly great festival band in a studio production. That’s not an easy thing to do. And the Brophy boys enjoy tradition; they play tradition; and like the god Janus, they push tradition forward, while at the same January Man time, love all the tunes that were lovingly played in the folk-rock past.

Neil Brophy is one of the unsung heroes of music. With his thoughtful lyrics he should be recognized as one of our foremost singer songwriters. His new album ‘True Stories’ is his best work yet. It contains his cult classic ‘Record Collector’ a must listen for vinyl fans. Top Class!
The “Record Collector “ that features on the album was originally a solo vinyl release by Neil Brophy and was championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music. The band version of this will be released on Record Store Day 2020. Steve has also taken a shine to the new single "Nice To Know"and started playing it five weeks before release.
