2019 album (ex-Mostly Autumn). Also available on vinyl

Our Overview. 

The new studio album from the former Mostly Autumn vocalist & co-songwriter, known for her magical, evocative voice and an ability to interpret and inhabit a range of styles with a mix of power and feeling, Heather Findlay is one of the finest vocalists working in music today. Prog Magazine lauded her, “Deliciously sultry vocals”, whilst Maverick magazine hailed her, “Pure, crystalline voice. She grabs your heart in an almost vice-like grip”.

The album is a blend of originality, while breaking new ground with nods to Americana & the music of India, the album echoes with a bounty of delving into the depths of the music Heather has always loved with flashes of diverse influences from Heart, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and Queen, to Emmylou Harris and Neil Young, to George Harrison and Kate Bush.

Heather says: “Though I’ve been doing what I do for about 22 years; that is writing and singing, and as the years have gone by, playing and producing too, ‘Wild White Horses’ is actually my first full solo album. I was honoured to have the wonderful Luke Morley come in as my producer / co-writer on this album, which was written over a couple of years, and as you may already know, was recorded last summer at Rockfield Studios in Wales. I learned a lot from Luke, who raised the bar so high, that if I ever needed to find another co-pilot, there’d be an awfully large pair of shoes to fill...! Danny Bowes, vocal powerhouse extraordinaire of Thunder, sings with me on a duet called, ‘Just A Woman’. The mystical wonder of Troy Donockley of Nightwish and his Uilleann pipes feature on the track titled ‘I Remember’ and on the track ‘Winner’, a glorious guest appearance from non other than the Flute Father Himself - Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull graces the album”.
