Starry Skies release a new album, ‘Do It With Love’ via Fox Star Records.
Glasgow-based sextet – Warren McIntyre (vocals & guitar), Heather Phillip (vocals & violin), Jen Lunan (vocals & cello) Adam Scott (bass & piano), Johnny Rooney (guitar) and Sophie Pragnell (viola , vocals & percussion) –
The band – Warren McIntyre (vocals/guitar), Heather Phillips (violin/vocals), Jen Lunan – (vocals/ cello), Adam Scott (bass), Johnny Rooney (guitar) and Sophie Pragnell (viola/vocals/percussion) – are based in Glasgow but come from various parts of Scotland, England and Australia.
It’s the band’s first long-player since 2018’s sophomore effort ‘Be Kind’, which was part recorded in Belle and Sebastian’s studio by Stevie Jackson.
Songs from that release featured on a range of radio stations across the world, particularly on New York’s WMFU, while the band played Liverpool’s Cavern, Kelvingrove Bandstand, Rough Trade East and many other UK venues to promote the release.
The band’s roots go further back, with debut long-player ‘Ask The Animals’ appearing in 2016 with the ‘Warren McIntyre & The…’ prefix, although the singer boasts of earlier showbiz encounters including, as a youngster, “dancing onstage with Nina Simone,” as well as encountering Chuck Berry in Glasgow “waiting for the lights to change.”
The album is available now on CD and vinyl, and also gets a live launch on Saturday November 21st, from 8.00pm – 9.15pm, with a special streamed set from Maybank Studios, where ‘Do It With Love’ was recorded.
