‘Creature’ is Song of the Day over at For Folk’s Sake.
It is the title track of my EP and is a live recording with ex Pulp musician Steven Havenhand on guitar and Lilac Time co-founder Nick Duffy on bass. I am playing Nick’s lovey Wurlitzer and singing about slugs…
Some exciting things are happening at my end of the woods. The second EP in the series ‘Songs 5-8 Creature’ is being released in only 10 days! Woohoo. It will be available as a digital download on iTunes, Amazon and a host of other digital stores. The iTunes version comes complete with digi-booklet which contains the song lyrics and some of the stories behind the songs.
Meanwhile I am hand making the physical copies. There will be a limited edition of 100 with original artwork by illustrator Emily Sams printed on recycled card. Included is an illustrated A4 insert with a story about my unlikely discovery of Emily who has been busy painting enormous murals in Kathmandu. She is an amazing artist.
The handmade cds will be available on 27th July from my Bandcamp page and to launch them I will be doing a series of performances in a former launderette in Penryn as part of the Penryn Arts Festival including a candle lit concert on the 27th. There will more information about my gigs on my Facebook page.
