A New Album for 2019
Songs from the Arctic, the Desert and the Curious Heart – A new Kickstarter campaign.
Somewhere between Jazz, Folk, Gospel and Americana there’s an area of music that doesn’t have a name. With a cartographer’s attention to detail, Kirsty McGee – a wandering maverick and spellbinding live performer with a voice that has been described as having the texture of smoke and velvet – has spent the past fifteen years and seven albums mapping this place, tracking the common origins of song.
Songs from the Arctic, the Desert and the Curious Heart
Every song has a story. This is something anyone will tell you. The songs that will make up Kirsty McGee’s 8th album will have literally been through fire and ice before they reach you. With your help this collection of twelve new, old-sounding songs will be finessed over the winter and brought to life by many of the players and the studio engineer who worked on her seventh album, Those Old Demons.
I am supporting this via Kickstarter, and have created a range of great rewards for backers. Please take a look at what we’re planning and consider being a part of a very exciting new project.
THE HOBOPOP COLLECTIVE
Hobopop (n) [music of no fixed abode]:
Ever-changing bunch of leftfield misfits and ragged visionaries with playing credits ranging from Tom Waits to GoGo Penguin. The sound is joyful and dirty with hints of gospel and blues, veering towards cubist shuffle and wry noir. From musical saw and waterphone to Humber hubcaps via the occasional metal bucket.
