Description

Emily Barker's new album is a collection of solo versions of her songs, recorded live to 2-track tape at Toerag Studios in London with grammy-winning producer Liam Watson (The White Stripes - Elephant). In the album's sleeve notes, she explains how the idea came about: "over the last few years, in between touring with my bands The Red Clay Halo and Vena Portae, I've played lots of solo shows. Often people will come up to me at the end of those shows and ask if there is any way to get hold of recordings of the songs as they've just heard them - just me, my guitar and my harmonica". Up until now, that hasn't been possible, but with The Red Clay Halo currently on hiatus after their final tour last year, Emily took the opportunity to go in to the studio to record her own selection of songs from her back catalogue. Many of these songs are the ones she usually chooses to play at solo shows, with a few additions. The songs go right back to her first UK band the-low-country, through all her albums with The Red Clay Halo, and including a brand new song, 'Anywhere Away', written last year as the theme to the forthcoming British movie Hec McAdam (starring Peter Mullan and Keith Allen). Recorded at Toerag Studios - where The White Stripes recorded their breakthrough grammy-winning album Elephant.Recorded live to tape. No edits, no overdubs.Features Emily's selection of songs from her back catalogue, going all the way back to her first UK band, the-low-country.
