Dan Willson is Scotland's acclaimed singer songwriter Withered Hand. He has released three albums and a number of EPs over the last 15 years and has toured internationally, amassing a devoted following while staying close to his DIY roots in the underground music scene. Kathryn Williams is a Mercury Music Prize nominated English singer-songwriter who has released 16 albums. She has collaborated with poet Dame Carol Ann Duffy, author Laura Barnett and written songs with Paul Weller, Neill Maccoll and Michele and Romeo Stodart, to name just a few. She has written a novel - The Ormering Tide, hosts her own podcast 'Before The Light Goes Out' and tutors at Arvon and Moniack Mhor. - Kathryn and Dan met in 2019 in Edinburgh at a Book Festival event curated by Hollie McNish and Michael Pedersen. Their co-writing started when Kathryn wrote a tweet to Dan asking "What kind of songs would we write together and what would they sound like?" or something to that effect. Dan was convinced she had sent it to the wrong person. But she hadn't. Curious to meet and find out, Kath travelled up to Edinburgh where Dan lives. They wrote two songs together and then Dan travelled down to Newcastle where Kath lives and they wrote more. - The record was made with the help of Creative Scotland who funded the recording, enabling Dan and Kath to enlist the glitterati of the Scottish music scene to bring their magic to the songs, artists such as Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow) on drums, Graeme Smillie (Arab Strap/The Delgados) on bass, Kris Drever (Lau) played guitar, Chris 'Beans' Geddes (Belle & Sebastian) Pete Harvey (Modern Studies) Kenny Anderson (King Creosote). Producer Rod Jones (Idlewild) recorded, engineered and mixed the record at Post Electric Studio in Leith, Scotland.
