Folk singer-songwriter Neil McSweeney emerged from the flowering of Sheffield music that gave the world Arctic Monkeys and Richard Hawley and has since established himself as ‘a songwriter of rare ability’ (R2). Setting lyrics that deal with the contrasts and contradictions of life to romantic melodies as hopeful as they are melancholy, McSweeney’s finely crafted songs have been championed by his peers as well as across national radio and mainstream and specialist press. Since the release of his last album, Cargo, McSweeney has made increasingly big waves on the English folk scene picking up main stage festival appearances and collaborating with the likes of Jon Boden and Fay Hield.
February 2017 sees the release of McSweeney’s fourth album, A Coat Worth Wearing, the second release for new imprint Hudson Records. Produced by award-winning folk producer Andy Bell and building on the success of its predecessor, A Coat Worth Wearing shows a marked development in Neil’s sound and approach. Its nine songs were conceived as a piece and subsequently recorded together, largely in full-band live-takes, over seven days in the beautiful Welsh countryside.
McSweeney has toured extensively throughout the UK as well as in mainland Europe on his own and as support for the likes of Richard Hawley and Bellowhead. He will continue to tour around the release of A Coat Worth Wearing then throughout 2017 and beyond.
'Deeply felt, brooding songs rich in imagery.’
'A songwriter of rare ability'
'Songs so subtle and well-crafted that you can’t help but be drawn in.’
Drowned in Sound
‘Steelier than your average troubadour’
The English/Scottish quartet formed in 2013 consisting of four distinctive and talented performers – Lucy Farrell (fiddle, viola, voice), Rachel Newton (harp, fiddle, voice), Emily Portman (banjo, concertina, voice) and Alasdair Roberts (guitars, voice), drawn together by a shared love of traditional song and balladry and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration.
Over the last decade Neil McSweeney has established himself as a purveyor of increasingly refined folk-noir soundscapes, anglicised Americana and intimate acoustics. His aesthetic starts with his lyrics which dwell on the simple contrasts and contradictions in everyday life fitted with melodies as romantic and hopeful as they are melancholy.
Warren’s musical career began in the mid 90’s and has encompassed everything from the sonic exploration of Echoboy to the leaden rumble of Kings of the South Seas, not to mention a few revolutions of the planet as guitar man for hire with Spiritualized, Starsailor, Dave Gahan and Soulsavers (featuring the legendary Mark Lanegan).
The Transports tells the incredible tale of a family destroyed by poverty and crime, but resurrected by exile to the new colony of Australia. With fresh script and musical arrangement, this famous show re-emerges within a modern context of mass migration.
A transatlantic collaboration between Brooklyn based Hannah Read and Rowan Rheingans from Sheffield, who met whilst working together on the BBC Folk Award nominated album ‘Songs of Separation’ on the Isle of Eigg. We will be recording and releasing an EP by the duo in the early summer!
