DiS can exclusively unveil Under One Sky a brand new folk'ish project which features guest vocals from the likes of Blur's Graham Coxon and Idlewild's Roddy Woomble.
Under One Sky is the project of Scottish multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer John McCusker, and he's rallied together a dozen of Britain’s finest musicians including Roddy Woomble and Graham Coxon. Commissioned by various artsy organisations (PRS Foundation, the Scottish Arts Council and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation), it's one of those collaboration-filled records, which explores many different traditions that influence today’s folk scene.
