Alistair’s deep rootsy music delivers one of the widest dynamic ranges you are likely to find. With recent live performances on BBC Radio, his ‘Songs for Seagulls’ body of work is rapidly gaining him a name as one of the country’s finest word-smiths. Alistair's songs lead you from almost silently picked passages of carefully chosen and beautifully articulated script to hard, driven gutsy highs of raw emotion and back again. His music is now regularly cited as being ‘wonderfully well-crafted with a delivery to more than impress.’ His new 'Songs for Seagulls' albums contain over 2 hours of solo music recorded in one take in a huge stone and wood recording space, using orchestral recording techniques to capture his rare musical dexterity.
“Powerful vocals and mastery of the guitar make this guy a must see."
“… A unique and wholly original talent and after having seen him play live on a number of occasions, including a session on the programme, I’m very happy to confirm that.”
“If you’re a fan of acoustic music that’s firmly rooted in the Troubadour tradition then you’ll enjoy Alistair’s music.”
Phil Jackson, BBC Introducing
