Chris Jagger / Acoustic Roots
Chris Jagger has been extremely busy—in addition to the pile of more than a 100 compositions he has written, recorded, and released in recent years, he has also been featured on the dozen albums that have been released by him, sometimes solo, sometimes with his band Atcha. And then there is his small livestock operation, which he runs with his wife in his farmhouse near Glastonbury, where the two have now been at home for 20 years, sharing the farm with chickens and sheep. Those interested should keep an ear open, as the animals can be heard in a small extra role on his brand-new album "Mixing Up the Medicine," whose release is scheduled for September 10 via BMG.
In addition, Jagger has spent the lockdown finishing his autobiography, "Talking to Myself," which is a jam-packed, detail-filled, and amusing gossip tale that looks way back to his youth in Dartford, Kent, where he grew up with his older brother Mick. It traces the coming of age of the two siblings and their close-knit, lifelong love of the blues. And last but not least, it chronicles the musical adventures of the younger Jagger from the early 1970s onwards; including quite entertaining digressions about his travels to India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and to Israel, where he took part in a production of the musical "Hair."
