Kimbrough and Womack announce first UK tour as DADDY

DADDY

DADDY – the combination of Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack who partly funded their first album by mowing a fan's lawn and auctioning off a decorated and autographed rake and leaf blower – have announced their first UK tour.
 
The duo have so far confirmed nine shows in England, Wales and Scotland, starting at the Prince Albert in Brighton on May 18.

Kimbrough and Womack have known each other since 1992 but toured as independent artists and as part of various bands until recently.
 
Faced with the cost of getting their full band to the SXSW festival in Austin last year, and with the expenses of recording their first album, the pair turned to their early fans, offering special live CDs, merchandise and the chance to have the two DADDYs play ball with the family. When they launched a "name your own price" for their unmade studio album, fans offered an average of $15.36 – more than double the price paid by fans of Radiohead.
 
The album, "For a Second Time", was released in summer 2009.
