Songs Beneath the River Limited Edition 10" Vinyl EP

Hello there, I've just stepped off the plane from Nashville and am back on British turf ready to get stuck into celebrating Record Store Day and the release of our limited edition 10" vinyl EP 'Songs Beneath the River'.
The recording was made a couple of months ago in Mark Ronson's Zelig studios where The Red Clay Halo and I recorded direct to vinyl via a link through to Gearbox Records' incredible mastering suite next door. Here's a video which sheds a bit more light on this antiquated direct-to-disc recording method and how we went about making the EP...

So why Songs Beneath The River? The four songs on the EP were chosen from the list we had put together of music that informed and inspired the writing and arranging on our album Dear River...

Tracklist for ‘Songs Beneath The River’:
1. Do Right Woman, Do Right Man
2. Easter
1. Tougher Than The Rest
2. Day After Tomorrow

To celebrate the release, we'll be doing a bunch of in-store appearances...

Sat 19 Apr

I'm also playing host to the smallest music venue in the world: 'Folk in a Box' We have a bespoke 'Aussie' box and I've been booking tonnes of brilliant local Sydney performers to come and play songs to one person at a time in the dark. We're set up in the Festival Village every evening (apart from Mondays and Tuesdays) between 5pm and 10pm from tomorrow, 9th January until Sunday 26th January. I'll also be performing in the box. So please pop down for what is a hugely unique and wonderful experience!
More details here: Festival Village

Hope to catch you over the next few weeks.
Best wishes and happy new year,

Linn's 24 bits of Christmas

Linn Records are repeating their musical advent calendar promotion this year, giving away a free download every day from today until 24th December.

It's a great way to try out some new music, and for those who haven't heard the difference that Studio Master quality digital audio delivers, you get to sample that too. If it's anything like last year, the music spans an eclectic cross-genre selection and it starts today with three free downloads, including Cenzo Townshend's mix of Ghost Narrative…
