We’re delighted to be working with Mark Mulcahy!

Mark Mulcahy is the former singer of the well regarded and influential Miracle Legion. He also formed the band Polaris and wrote the music for the Nickelodeon show The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

Mark’s solo career began with Fathering, an album that received universal praise including Album Of The Month in Uncut and Album Of The Week in the Guardian, and featured the track Hey Self Defeater, which was featured in Nick Hornby’s book 31 Songs.

From there followed the albums Smilesunset and In Pursuit Of Your Happiness, several tours of the UK and Europe, countless radio sessions and huge critical acclaim for both his songwriting prowess and his remarkable voice. In 2008 he quit everything to look after his children following the tragic death of his wife. To assist him through these troubled times many of his long-time friends and fans banded together to record an album of his songs as a tribute to his wife and the result was 2009’s Ciao My Shining Star, featuring the likes of Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke, Frank Black, Mercury Rev, Dinosaur Jr, The National and many others. Mulcahy’s most recent album, The Possum in the Driveway, received stellar reviews and in 2017 he appeared on the Marc Maron WTF podcast.

The Possum in the Driveway is out now on the Mezzotint Label.

‘A rare and wise treat from an underrated songwriter’ – Mojo

Special guest is New York’s Hannah Cohen, performing here with her band. Hannah Cohen has arrived home. From the title of her new album to the depth and beauty of the music, the Woodstock, NY-based singer-songwriter’s third album, Welcome Home, displays a new level of confidence and comfort with the many creative tools at her disposal. Cohen’s remarkably evocative voice is surrounded by dreamy, swooning incantations, from the rippling This Is Your Life and the slow-burning, forthright statement of All I Want, to the soul swagger of Get in Line and dramatic vocal leaps of Wasting My Time. Welcome Home was released on 26 April via Bella Union.
