  • Description

    Product Description Rachel Newton's third solo album, Here's My Heart Come Take It, is named after the opening track on this exciting new album; a bold combination of traditional folk songs and Rachel's own compositions. Recorded in December 2015 at the recently opened Caribou Recording studio near Edinburgh, Rachel and co-producer/drummer Mattie Foulds took time to build up a unique sound using voice, harps, piano, keyboards and percussion before inviting fiddle player Lauren MacColl and trombonist Michael Owers to complete the picture. Keen to try something different and to bring out the personality of each musician involved, Rachel deliberately chose a more experimental approach for this recording than she has with her earlier albums. Developing ideas, playing with sounds and improvising in the studio, combined with a considered choice of material has resulted in a very personal and heartfelt piece of work. Review Here's My Heart Come Take It is a brilliant synthesis of superb compositional skills, musicianship and production, bringing traditional ballads into the 21st century - ***** Colin Bailey, R2, May/June 2016 About the Artist Founder member of The Furrow Collective, The Emily Portman Trio and The Shee, Rachel released solo albums The Shadow Side in 2012 and Changeling in 2014. As well as voice and harp, Rachel also plays piano, fiddle and viola and has worked across a range of performance platforms including theatre and storytelling. A skilled collaborator, Rachel also recently started working with Scottish/Norwegian band Boreas and was one of the eight musicians to work on The Elizabethan Session project.
