JR Green \\ Introducing a new artist 11 Sep 2015

So, after a 9 year gap between opening our doors in 2006 for Frightened Rabbit and Kathryn Joseph's release in January 2015.   We have only given it 9 months before our next release this time...  and we're VERY excited to introduce you to JR Green!

They are two brothers from Strontian, a wee village in Scotland a few miles from the most Westerly point of mainland Britain.

Earlier this year, JR Green, Marcus Mackay (of the Diving Bell Lounge) and Joe McAlinden (_LINDEN, x-Superstar, E.D.I.T) spent some time in the studio to develop what has shaped up to be an exciting first release from this new duo.

A wee sample of it can be heard below and if you want to keep in check with all JR Green goings on, news and latest info (as well as a free download of their first song "Nigerian Princess" - be sure to pop your name down to be the first:

Kathryn Joseph \\ WINNER of Scottish Album of the Year Award 18 Jun 2015

I've not even really seen Kathryn to say how excited proud I am. 

She's sleeping. 
So she should be. 
She danced hard last night. 
So she should have.

The The SAY Award   was incredible and made better for Kathryn Joseph's album  (recorded and co-written by our Marcus of the Diving Bell Lounge ) has been recognised in such high regard.

I'm sure there are those who have known Kathryn for years who must be feeling so happy that she has this platform to reach more listeners. I've only known her 4 years and it definitely feels a relief to know that she might feel this is her time and opportunity to make more beautiful noises. On record and live.

I. Can't. Wait.

And thank you everyone.
