'Fans of Bjork, Joanna Newsom and Jolie Holland will love without reservation…an album full of standouts'

Support comes from:
Morrison Steam Fayre:
Over the past year Morrison Steam Fayre have developed naturally and diligently into a mature, fresh and unpretentious band. With shows in London, New York and a triumphant performance at 2008’s Truck Festival all under their belt, MSF have gathered a discerning set of fans. The live shows are invigorating and skilful, with Reid’s soaring vocals complimenting Dan’s complex but playful riffs; while all this is backed up by Aaron’s soulful bass and Tomer’s solid, up-tempo beats.
The Heart Strings:
A North London based band who’ve been together for a few years now. Their ranks have swelled to 6 onstage, though on record, they sound more like 60 on some songs. String sections, horn sections, a b-zillion backing vocals, piano, organ, glock, accordion, harp, the songs just kept calling out for them.
