Christmas single: For we are born..

Photo: For we are born...I have a Christmas single coming out on the 10th of December; it's a rootsy/folk/pop based sound and features the backing vocals of the traditional folk singers The Linties. The song is a bit unusual (not Slade) but it's got that 'winter time' feel and I think it's a cracker. Morag, Iyaah and Stuart of the Linties and my brother Peter - provide backing vocals. The vocals were recorded at Newbattle Abbey (built in the 11th century) which in itself makes it quite special.

Buy 'For we are born..' on CDBaby from the 10th December.

Also available from my Bandcamp page - For we are born...
