Aberdeenshire singer-songwriter Gordon Duthie releases his debut album, entitled Shire and City.

The release has been in the works since 2008, but Duthie delayed release until completion of his university course, which included a thesis and dissertation on music distribution strategies. The album is self-released and includes a collaboration with Ohio-based vocalist Kristen Johnson. Also on the album is ‘Hide’, which was a Jockrock Video of the Week last December.
