False Lights Debut Album: Salvor

9th December 2014

I’m really pleased to announce the really of False Lights‘ debut album Salvor, the culmination of a year or so’s work from myself, Jim Moray and the band. Some of my favourite moments are ‘The Wife Of Usher’s Well’, a track combining a tune from the American Sacred Harp hymnbook with a Scottish ballad, and ‘The Indian’s Petition’, a song from another shapenote tune book called The Southern Harmony. It’s been really fun to play around with combining mine and Jim’s shared love of traditional song and heavy guitar music, in a way that to us feels fresh and natural. We hope you’ll enjoy it too.
