Album information

Dear River is the much-anticipated fourth studio album from Bafta and Ivor Novello award winning Emily Barker and her band The Red Clay Halo. It is a compelling song cycle and an unmistakable watershed in Emily's rapidly burgeoning career. This album is also available as Deluxe Digital Download, with a bonus disc.

Full of contrasting dynamics and a broad cavalcade of emotions Dear River is a fascinating exploration of self, place and people which sees Emily blend her own story into the wider joys and sorrows gleaned from her rigorous researches into others' experiences of travel and emigration. With producer Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile) at the helm, the result is a beautiful, sensitive, provocative and at times surprising album.

"I'm so happy with this album", says Emily, barely containing her excitement, "The whole concept means so much to me and although the songs are quite personal, they also feel like they could be other people's stories - it's the best recording  we've done."
