Boo Hewerdine is well known as one of the greatest songwriter performers in the business, but incredibly, it's been 8 years since Boo released his last studio album of original material God Bless The Pretty Things (Reveal Records 2009). Not that Hewerdine has been inactive, far from it, the period has been the most productive of his career. Boo wrote Radio Ballads for the BBC's Olympic and recent Child Migration series. There has been a huge array of writing and producing with both established and upcoming artists and 'passing something on' to budding writers via his much loved song-writing workshops. Boo formed the duo State Of The Union with American guitarist Brooks Williams and recorded and released two albums and an EP, live in the studio with engineer Mark Freegard, the duo appeared on BBC1 TV Andrew Marr show performing their cover of Pet Shop Boys Rent. Hewerdine has written lyrics and played on over 30 new recordings by and with other artists. Now, after 8 years, Boo Hewerdine announces his first new studio album. 'Swimming In Mercury' will be released by Reveal Records on April 28th 2017.
Darden Smith is a singer-songwriter based in Austin whose thirty-year career redefines what it means to be a musician. In addition to fifteen critically acclaimed albums, Smith continues to break new ground using the craft of songwriting in education, entrepreneurship, and in service to others. He is the founder and creative director of SongwritingWith:Soldiers, a nonprofit that pairs award-winning songwriters with veterans and service members in retreat settings to craft songs about combat and the return home. Smith’s music remains rooted in the songwriting traditions of his home state of Texas, while reflecting influences of rock, folk, and Americana rhythms and melodies. Described by All Music Guide as "a singer-songwriter blessed with an uncommon degree of intelligence, depth, and compassion," Smith continues to write songs and tour across the U.S. and Europe. His latest album, Everything, will be released in April 2017 on Compass Records.
Bridging the genres of Folk, Americana and Country, Emily Mae Winters' haunting self-penned songs are influenced by her love of poetry. Emily, who has described Cambridge Folk Club as pivotal in launching her musical career, is currently undertaking her first ever UK tour, to launch her debut album Siren Serenade. She has supported Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage, Kelly Oliver and Jim Moray; taken part in an Emerging Talent Night at London's The Green Note as part of London's Folk and Roots Festival; released a winter single, The Star, based on Keats' poem Bright Star, and been awarded a scholarship to attend February's international Folk Alliance in Kansas City.
