Description

"Light In The Darkest Corner " is the soaring debut by Lorraine McCauley and the Borderlands - a band that Karine Polwart recently tipped to be the breakthrough act of 2012. Karine says "a natural warmth and purpose that supports literate and lovely songs of quiet despair, hope and sheer joy at being alive in this difficult world" Singer-songwriter Lorraine McCauley has a powerful voice of rare beauty and wide emotional range, and this album reveals her unique and impassioned talent for songwriting. The songs range from tender love stories to feisty battle cries - all rooted in the folk tradition but with an experimental twist placing them firmly at the cutting edge of the contemporary scene. 'Light In The Darkest Corners' is born out of exploration, growth and determination. The songs dare to find hope, positivity and strength in life's difficulties, challenges and complications. Lorraine's songs are a mix of magic and honesty that unites the listener with a sense of connection and freedom. Already familiar faces on the contemporary Scottish music scene, the talented musicians in Lorraine's band, The Borderlands, include Jonee Duggan the accordionist and producer of the album, Nick Jenkins on viola, mandolin and fiddle and Billy Hamilton on cello. Gifted and intuitive, the Borderlands weave melodies and counter melodies around Lorraine's contemplative and captivating lyrics. Lorraine McCauley and the Borderlands have created arrangements that will leave the listener with many spine-tingling moments throughout the album. Edinburgh-based, and Donegal-born, Lorraine McCauley has built a loyal fanbase in the Scottish festival scene, with their fans funding the recording of the album.
