The video shoot for "Fly to me" was amazing. Working with Liv O'Donoghue, Maria Nilsson Waller, Liadain Speranza Herriot and Justine Cooper was a joy. Sinead Lawlor did an incredible job on the costumes.

Remixes of 'Fly to me' [Jonathan Kreinik (AKA JK)], "Mo Ghrá" (Sunken Foal) and "Pound" (The Last Sound) have just been completed! I'm hoping to have more exciting remix news soon.

The above is part of a series of promotional photos taken by David Cleary in Donegal in January. The first single, "Fly to me", will be released digitally along with the AKA JK remix and the "Fly to me" video in HD in March/April. The album will follow soon after followed by digial single releases of "The things between", "Song to myself" and "Let me leave you", all accompanied by remixes and HD videos. Stills of the videos shoots can be seen on the Sfumato Facebook page.

It's time to make more music!

I completed shooting videos for "These things between" (shadow puppetry) and "Let me leave you" with the wonderfully talented Andy Clarke recently, you can see some stills on the Facebook page. I've just started editing the video for 'These things between' and am shooting the video for "Fly to me" with Andy Clarke and Liv O'Donoghue in early December which means the album will be released in the Spring of 2012. It's an amazing feeling to have a backlog of work you love doing so much! I'll get back to writing songs any day now...

I've sent the CD to the pressing plant!

8th January 2011
The album is finished! "Fly to me" will be released first as the leading single. The album, "These things between...", will be released after that on CD, vinyl & digital download. When all this will happen, I'm not really sure.. I'm hoping for early Summer 2011. The album contains 11 songs and features guest appearances from Miriam Ingram, Rebecca Collins, Eoin Dillon, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Mischa Langemeijer, Esosa Ighodaro, Nono Madolo, Alice Burke, Christine Nalubega, Abigail Smith and Lioba Petrie.
