Latest news »The Breath sign to Real World
Real World Records is delighted to announce a brand new artist signing, The Breath.
The Breath is Stuart McCallum (former guitarist of The Cinematic Orchestra), Irish singer Rioghnach Connolly and McCallum's fellow Cinematic alumni, pianist John Ellis and drummer Luke Flowers.
It was a wonderful revelation to discover Stuart as a solo performer when he supported Portico Quartet some time ago at the South Bank's Purcell Rooms. Keeping in touch over the years we finally had the opportunity to work together.
By this point Stuart and Rioghnach had forged their musical bond as writers and performers and we invited them to Real World Studios to work on music for a B&W Society of Sound release. It was a joy to have them installed in our recording space.
As we grew to love the new material as it was unfolding in the studio, it became clear that this was an album we were excited to release on Real World Records. At Peter Gabriel's suggestion, the exceptional Tchad Blake came on board to mix the album and together The Breath was created.
The Breath's debut album Carry Your Kin will be released in June 2016.
