Looking forward to a couple of exciting new single releases coming in July.
Fri 3rd July 2020
Dean Owens, with a new song, To Where The Heart Is (recorded with his Whisky Hearts band (Amy Geddes, Brian McAlpine, Craig Ross, Jim McDermott and Mike McCann), at Slate Room Studios, Pencaitland). It’s a big widescreen of a song, thinking of people you grew up with and the different journeys they take. The accompanying video (by Ruth Barrie of Waltzer Films) was shot mostly on Super 8 film, around Joshua Tree National Park, California.
(Premiered on Americana UK )
Fri 10th July 2020
BA Robertson with his version of his own much loved, award winning song, The Living Years. This is all about the vocal, and is quite stunning. A powerful pop ballad about fathers and sons, it already has a place on many people’s favourite song lists, and BA’s version (which he claims to have found “behind the sofa”) delivers all the emotions in spades.
