This title doesn't have an exclamation point, I've changed. Today I posted off the master CD to ACDSleeve who are printing the CDs. They are as brilliant as their name is. I genuinely cannot believe it's finished, we started in September! I was naive to think it would be finished by Christmas but truthfully I have never had a recording experience like it.

I had the great honour of singing some backing vocals on Darren Doherty's new single Kites from his album What You Do.

I'm so excited to announce the release show for The Inbetween. It's going to be hosted by the wonderful Chordblossom lads with support from Runabay, Whale Talk and Katie Armstrong. It's going to be the first time I play with a band and that is as terrifying as it is exciting! It's also the first time i'll be playing some of these songs live so it's going to be fun. The show is in McHugh's in Belfast and doors are at 8pm. Here's the poster for now, designed again by the wonder
I can finally announce that my album is called The Inbetween and it's coming out May 8th! I'll post about the preorder details once they are official. The incredible Maggie Molloy did all the artwork, you can check out her stuff at crookedlittlepixel.com. For now, here's the album cover: I'm excited for you all to hear it! Lauren
