It is a challenge to stay in punk or even post-punk forever, but even more to move on and Edinburgh’s Stephen Harrison proves that you can alter the approach and succeed. He was on a variety of 7” singles back when that was the best way for a band to get a record out, but now is doing it himself. This is just Stephen Harrison on vocals and acoustic guitar playing his songs. He has a nice guitar style that has an eerie structure to it at times, but eventually finds interesting patterns and melodies. His voice is deep, a touch weathered with a light touch and carries the melody along. This should resonate with Folkworld readers, especially those who enjoy highly personal direct folk music.

February 28th 2016. Pleased to say that the new album is finished at last. It's now at the mastering and manufacturing phase.
A couple of days ago I discovered a video on Youtube that someone had made for my 1980's song 'Sad And Blue'. Quite a surprise. I was quite touched by the fact that someone had taken the time and gone to the trouble of researching that facts about the song's original release on Les Disques Du Crepuscule. I felt that the video had been made with care and respect. I feel that this is all a good omen for 2016, a year which i am currently optimistic about.
