Kathryn Joseph \\ Fair Mothers debut album 22 Sep 2016

A little bit of other artist and label love here for Fox Food Record's new release...

Based in Aberdeen, Scotland; Fair Mothers is the principle creative outlet for singer-songwriter Kevin Allan who creates beautifully poignant and honest folk music

'Blind' is no exception, a tale of how the lingering light of love fights its way through the dull, domesticated nature of our lives

With an enviable support cast of the remarkably talented Kathryn Joseph (Scottish Album of the Year Winner) and Scottish music legend Marcus Mackay on production duties (Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Trembling Bells) recording of the album took place during several caught weekends at Marcus' Diving Bell Lounge Studios in Glasgow

The result of these sessions are ten stunning and stirring tracks. Allan's melodies ache, Joseph's harmonies shiver, acoustic guitars rattle, pianos chime, bass flashes and Mackay's drums pump blood through the veins

Lyrically focussing on dense and tumultuous themes such as love and heartbreak, regret, life and loss; Allan's knack of grounding his prose, his skill of bringing the mundane to life means the songs weave and wind into our conscious, their words feeding our weak and weary minds

About the songs Allan says
"I don't know where they come from. Maybe they are about trying not to be a total failure. About trying to find something. Something like a pearl..."

Fox Food Records are very proud to be releasing the album digitally and on limited edition 12" vinyl on the 11th November

Pre-orders are available here via their bandcamp:


"Quietly compelling throughout, “Blind” might be the record’s soft opening but it immediately resonates, setting the scene with a dexterity that grips and endures for far longer the length of the story it tells" - GOLDFLAKEPAINT

JR Green \\ New Valentines Day single release - "The Gentleman's Apocalypse" 26 Jan 2016

JR Green are releasing a new single off their Bring the Witch Doctor EP on Valentines Day. "The Gentleman's Apocalypse" offers a perfectly crafted and beautifully heartfelt nutshell-short indie folk love song of "teenage confessions" and “strange ideas of love” from our prodigal 19 and 21 year old brother duo from the most Westerly point of Mainland Britain.

I'm delighted to say that Huw Stevens gave the track its first airing last night in the BBC Introducing slot (thanks to a Vic Galloway tip off) You can listen back here

They're playing at Celtic Connections (and elsewhere in Scotland) - and fresh from their live session for Vic Galloway (which you can see here) - they will be making a tiny special guest appearance at Linden's gig tomorrow at Oran Mor before playing a headline set at King Tuts on Saturday night. Tickets for this here

Kathryn Joseph \\ Number 3 in The Hot 100 for The List... 04 Nov 2015

KATHRYN JOSEPH is ANNOUNCED AS NUMBER 3 in the Hot 100 List Magazine end of year countdown!

Article below and full list here

In June, Aberdeen’s best-kept musical secret Kathryn Joseph (pictured here with musical partner Marcus Mackay) became the first woman to win the Scottish Album of the Year award, for Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I’ve Spilled. Her collection was judged to be ‘the most outstanding’ Scottish album released between January 2014 and March 2015, which we reckon is pretty outstanding indeed. She teamed up with Scottish Ballet to create the video for her single ‘The Bird’, and performance-wise, she appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, and has played gigs up and down the country. Let’s hope by 2016, the Kathryn Joseph secret is well and truly out. (RM)
