The captivating debut solo album on 180g vinyl from singer / songwriter Fiona Mackenzie featuring self-penned compositions in Gaelic and English.

Also available: SACD and download.


'Magnificent and often hauntingly evocative...very highly recommended.' Audiophile Audition

5 stars 'Gentle, lush album full of exquisite musical moments.' Maverick 

'This Kate Bush meets Bjork of the Isle of Lewis is the voice taking traditional music to places it's seldom been before.' The Irish World 


These are songs with a distinct, northern European character. Her writing and singing technique are affected by a spectrum of influences spanning Hungarian folk music, Nick Cave, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins and Bjork, as well as the Scottish and Gaelic traditions.

Co-produced by The Blue Nile producer Calum Malcolm, traditional acoustic instruments and electronic elements blend to create a forward-thinking music that remains rooted in heritage. Mackenzie's emotive self-penned lyrics paint a picture and the sound at times is hauntingly Celtic.

Born and raised on the Isle of Lewis, off the west coast of Scotland, she has been writing and performing songs in English and Gaelic since her early teens.
