Happy New Year!
January is usually a bit of a slow month. It’s cold, the days are long and folks are still trying to get over the festivities and excesses of December. For me though, 2016 has started with a spring in its step and I hope to continue the rest of the year with the same amount of enthusiasm.
New single ‘Melete’:
My new single ‘Melete’, set for release digitally on the 8th Feb, has had some fantastic feedback – check out these lovely reviews from God Is In The TV and A Musical Priority. BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales have all picked up on the track which is wonderful. If you haven’t had the chance to see the music video, filmed by Marisa Crockett and Colin Sweett in Toronto and featuring Kaitlyn Alexander, you can watch it here:
Celtic Connections free mp3:
On Sunday the 24th January I had the pleasure of performing on the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections in Glasgow. It was the biggest audience I’ve played to so far and the experience was fantastic. I was joined on stage for a couple of numbers by my good friend Rachel Sermanni.
I’ve popped my favourite track from the set up on Soundcloud as a free download.
Pre-order ‘Titans’ Daughters’ EP:
I’d originally planned to release an album called ‘Titans’ Daughters’ but decided to split the release into 2 EPs. It seems the music works much better as 2 separate releases… like the 2 sides of a record (something we might consider doing once the second EP is out). For those who didn’t back the album crowdfund campaign, you can now pre-order the CD version of the first EP ‘Titans’ Daughters’ which features excellent artwork by Joseph Austin.
Pre-order here. All pre-orders will receive a hand drawn postcard by me!
The tracklisting with be as follows:
- By The Throat (w/Chrissy Barnacle)
- Mneme (w/Rachel Sermanni)
- The Muse (w/Simon Parton)
- Mneme II
The EP will be out 11th April. If you’re in Glasgow on the 10th April, I’ll be launching my EP at 13th Note – keep an eye here for more details.
On a final note, I’m looking to play dates in your city in the coming months. Suggestions and ideas most welcome. I can even come and play your house! Do get in touch.
Thank you for your continued support! I look forward to seeing you soon!
