John Parish New Album ft PJ Harvey

  • Published in News

Following the release of his new solo album Bird Dog Dante, twice Ensor-nominated composer and Mercury Prize winning producer John Parish has announced a string of European tour dates for the autumn, with more to be added.

Despite his long list of musical accomplishments, for years Parish has been happy outside the spotlight. On Bird Dog Dante, he delivers a collection of songs, including a duet with his longtime musical partner PJ Harvey, that should change all that.

Bird Dog Dante was completed in a busy year for Parish. On top of being the musical director of the extended PJ Harvey band on their Hope Six Demolition Project world tour, he produced acclaimed records for This is the Kit, Nadine Khouri, and Aldous Harding. Parish's new album manages to draw together these diverse threads of his career as a producer, songwriter and collaborator into one coherent and concise work - with pieces written for film alongside perfectly-crafted pop songs.

PJ Harvey Collaborates With Harry Escott

  • Published in News

British composer Harry Escott and artist PJ Harvey have collaborated on ‘An Acre of Land’, a new recording that is the theme to Dark River, the latest film by Director Clio Barnard. The entire film is also scored by Escott, who says: ‘recording PJ Harvey’s vocal on ‘An Acre of Land’, a song we arranged together for Dark River, was a spine-tingling experience.’ The song is out now, via independent label Cognitive Shift Recordings - a collaborative label between One Little Indian Records and Manners McDade Publishing.

Escott first came to prominence in 2005 with his score to the influential psychological horror film Hard Candy, directed by David Slade. Since then, Harry has worked with such stellar directorial talents as Eran Creevy on both Shifty and Welcome To The Punch; Michael Winterbottom on A Mighty Heart, The Road To Guantanamo, and Face Of An Angel; Clio Barnard on the multi award-winning The Arbor; and The Selfish Giant, a contemporary adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s short story; as well as Nick Broomfield on Ghosts; and perhaps most prominently, on Steve McQueen’s seminal debut film Shame.

Escott describes Dark River as ‘a film that leaves me wanting to take more care of those around me, which is a good thing for a film to leave you with.’ The film premiered at the 2017 London Film Festival, and will be on general release on February 23.
