Scotland’s Kris Drever (Lau) and England’s Boo Hewerdine (The Bible, Eddi Reader) have been connected through song for almost a decade. Kris approached Boo about recording the Hewerdine song ‘Harvest Gypsies’ as part of Drever’s (now classic) debut album ‘Black Water’. Produced by Scottish folk musician John McCusker, that recording led the pair to future collaborations and a tour with Eddi Reader. The duo finally found the time in late 2014 to write new songs with a view to making new recordings available for their 2015 tour.
Boo Hewerdine has an eighteen song career retrospective, ‘My Name In The Brackets’ (The Best of Boo Hewerdine & The Bible) out now and a new album ‘Open’ out in June 2015.
Kris Drever has recently issued his Shetland recorded ‘Mareel EP’ and has a new album with his award winning trio Lau ‘The Bell That Never Rang’ (produced by Joan As Police Woman) due for release May 4th on Reveal Records.
