Ey Up folks,
So today the day has finally come to announce the title and release date of my album to you all.
I Dreamt I Was A Bird will be released on 2/10/15
(artwork and photography by Elly Lucas)
This record is about being earthed, grounded, and dreaming of what lies ahead. Being of and for the landscape both urban and rural. All the stories are about real people and moments, inspired by incidental comments overheard in the super market queue, chance conversations with strangers, stories from my own family history and little moments in time. Musically it is an exploration of intimate acousticness but then progresses and changes and takes route through psychedelia, brass bands, protest punk and the tradition. It was produced by the lovely Stu Hanna of Megson who produced both of my previous records
The new album will be available to pre-order very soon, join my mailing list to be informed about this first and get the first cheeky listens! I will of course be shouting about it loud on facebook, twitter and instagram too so keep your eyes peeled :)
To accompany the album release I’ll be hitting the road again and I am super excited to announce that I will be joined by a band of stellar musicians to bring the tracks from ‘I Dreamt I Was A Bird’ to life.
Stephen MacLachlan (percussion) and Sam Pegg (bass) will be returning after last years band tour and I will also be joined by fiddle player extraordinaire Anna Esslemont (Uiscedwr) and Helga Ragnarsdottir on keys. Come and join us on tour :)
