October news…… Autumn is coming (Fall if you are in America or Canada) and celebrations are underway from Munich to Knoxville and beyond. We take comfort in the fact that the finest ales, liquers and wines were, and still are, made by monks. And while we are on the subject of celebration……
We welcome Sam Hill Jr. to Little Room Music Publishing, and are celebrating his forthcoming new album release, “Cowboys And Moonbeams”. We will be helping Sam to promote his album and publicise his latest touring and concert dates across the UK. Sam said in a recent interview, “The album is my most honest work to date with one dominant theme; love and commitment in the face of life’s’ struggle, and each song is a real conversation with those closest to me. I’ve tried to connect the words with simple melodies and minimal production. Much of the album was recorded at home in Cornwall and other locations including Somerset, Lancashire and Nashville TN. The music nods towards bluegrass and folk, but is hard to put into any one box”
We’ll keep you up to date with news of the release date and his forthcoming concerts, and also hope to introduce you to some of his back catalogue of great songs and music. You can stay in touch with him at www.samhilljr.co.uk and read more about the forthcoming album release on his profile page.
Amongst the compilation works published by Little Room Music, we publish two songs featuring the beautiful voice of Joanne Hogg, widely known as the lead singer of Celtic band Iona. Due to many requests from those of you trying to find the tracks online, we are now making them available on our main website, rather than just through the archive pages and the Liturgy Of Time compilation recording. You can now download the radio single, album version and piano/vocal versions of ‘I Am The Great Sun’ from her profile page, and also the beautiful arrangement of the traditional hymn ‘The Lord’s My Shepherd’ (Psalm 23) To stay in touch with all that Joanne is currently scheduling, both on her personal recordings and her concert and recording work with Iona, please visit www.Iona.uk.com for all the latest news and information. We have loved rediscovering these songs, and hope you will also enjoy these beautiful recordings.
