Phil Langran’s latest album, ‘Falling Light’, is released on 2nd September 2022. It sees him again working with producers Boo Hewerdine and Chris Pepper at Saltwell Studio, the venue for his 2019 work, ‘Skywriting’. Boo joins Phil on acoustic guitar and vocals, adding delicate textures on harmonium, piano, and celeste. The stripped down, subtle production features appearances by noted guests: Gustaf Ljunggren on slide guitar, Aaron Catlow on fiddle and Pete Harvey on cello. All but one of the twelve songs is a recent work, largely composed in the twilight zone of necessary isolation. The exception, ‘Dunmanus Bay’, was written in the late 1980s and has proved to be a perennial favourite with audiences and fellow performers. Phil’s talented and versatile band – Steve Benford, Frank McCarthy, Mark Walker and Alistair Bloomfield – will be joining him in a range of line-ups through the coming months.
“A fabulous writer”, Kathryn Williams
“A wonderful songwriter”, Boo Hewerdine
“Very consistent in style and mood – gratifyingly melancholic”, Nick Barraclough
“Music that just seems to flow effortlessly”, Alan Clifford, BBC Radio Notts
