Hello! I just wanted to let you know that Life and the Land, my EP with the marvellous singer, songwriter and pianist Kirsty Merryn is now available for pre-order and coming out September 3rd!
It seems a long time ago that we started thinking together about the traditional folk songs that celebrate our connection to the seasons! Life and the Land takes us through the year’s cycle of death and rebirth, with scarecrows, ploughboys, shepherdesses and the birds of the field telling their tales. If anything, this record feels even more relevant now, after a winter that feels like it’s gone on too long. These songs remind us that all things pass, green things grow, the sun rises and sets and the seasons change.
Working with a singer and songwriter of such talent like Kirsty who genuinely enjoys bringing traditional material up to date as much as I do has been marvellous. We hope you find listening to these songs as much fun as it was to make them. They’re a blast to play live so we hope we’ll see you on our joint tour, we’ll be seeing you around the place from Harvest to Spring.
