It’s Friday the 13th – what’s the worst that could happen?
With all that’s going on in the world right now, I guess the release of a brand new ukulele LP is a bit further down the list of candidates than usual.
Just as well really, because I’m really delighted to announce that my debut album – Spoons over Bourbon Street – is out today, with all proceeds going towards our London Marathon Charities: Alzheimer’s Research UK and Bowel Cancer UK.
The album contains original songs and some covers that mean a great deal to me. It has been lovingly produced by Chris Thorpe-Tracey, who many of you know as he played Edenfest – our occasional garden festival every time. Alongside some fantastic arrangements, Chris also lends his musical brilliance to a number of the tracks which is a real thrill for me.
The 8-track album is available now through Bandcamp:
It costs just £6 (inc. VAT), although there is the option to pay more if you wish to help our Marathon sponsorship along!
The website will also explain my rather odd stage name.
Our 2016 Charity release: The Elmers End Riots – Live at Edenfest 2011 by Carter USM is also been put back online for a limited time via the same link. Similarly priced at £6 with the option to pay more. Big thanks to Jim, Les and Marc for letting us relist this live treasure at the same time.
