It’s quite a skill jumping into the unknown and trying something new. And it’s one that songwriter Heidi Talbot does with aplomb!
The Co Kildare singer’s fifth and latest album “Here We Go, 1,2,3…. crosses the ages, jumps into the unknown and traverses oceans and musical styles from folk to American and to classic pop and back again.
And it’s a wonderful rollercoaster to ride on. Talbot is joined on the album by a whole host of musicians including Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Duke Special, Adam Holmes and Boo Hewerdine.
The album pays tribute to the many changes in Talbot’s life from having a second baby to losing her mum, from the brilliant country-pop meditation “The Year That I Was Born’’ to bluegrass psalm“Do You Ever Think Of Me’’ and the fabulous jig “Time to Rest’’.
Talbot now lives in Scotland and recorded her album in her converted bothy which is now a recording studio. It helped inspire her songs, which are just beautiful and if you want to see the lady live, then catch her at The Civic in Barnsley on November 5th or The Met in Bury the next night.
