Alistair Ogilvy - July Moon
Delighted to have Alistair Ogilvy's 2nd album ‘JULY MOON’ that features mainly original material, fantastic collaborations and guest musicians.
The current band line-up consists of Alistair on vocals/harmonium/keys, Kristan Harvey on fiddle and Kieran Heather on guitar. Kristan is an award winning Orcadian musician and recent member of the famous Blazin Fiddles. Kieran is a muti -instrumentalist, and a member of the band Washington Irving. With these incredible musicians, the sound created is refreshing, drawing from folk-rock/jazz/acoustic and ambient genres. With inspiration coming from an array of different musicians from Nick Drake, Kate Bush to Fairport Convention.
Alistair’s singing has led him to be invited to collaborate on stage with established musicians such as Karen Matheson, Craig Armstrong and Jerry Burns. Over the last year, he has supported Tiny Ruins, Alice Boman, and Jo Mango amongst others.
This album released on the record label ‘JULY MOON RECORDS’. Alistair has collaborated with talented friends to be involved with his creative process. The cast is a stellar one that hopefully proves the worth of this new recording.
Louis Abbott, lead singer from Admiral Fallow, produced the album and played percussion, Jamie Savage, part of the Chem 19 empire, was the engineer and Kenny Macleod mastered the final product. Craig Armstrong, the world-renowned film composer, arranged the strings on the opening track, Deep Blue Sea.
Guest vocalists on the album are three very special people – Jerry Burns, Karen Matheson and Siobhan Wilson. Jerry Burns is a well-established singer/songwriter. She writes with Craig Armstrong and has written songs for many musicians. Karen Matheson needs no introduction as the lead singer of the Scottish supergroup Capercaillie. Siobhan Wilson is a rising star, with outstanding talent gaining widespread recognition.
