aidan Le Grand Discours (CD, £11.50)label: Hazelwood
Irish artist Aidan plays a style of energetic folk-rock moulded by ten years of travelling and his Irish roots. His debut studio album will bring to mind the likes of John Martyn or Elbow. Aidan's debut album "Le Grand Discours" will be released on 23th March 2012 with Hazelwood Vinyl Plastics. The album is a series of eleven snapshots; eleven intimate, yet high-energy performances; beautifully and carefully orchestrated with all the colours of his travels. As his travels continued, Aidan had the opportunity to meet and play with artists as diverse as Bobby McFerrin, Damien Rice, Conor O'Brien (Villagers) and Antoine Wielemans (Girls In Hawaii). "Le Grand Discours" features guest performances from some of the characters he met along the way, lifting its lyric with string, wind and vocal arrangements and set to the solid backbone of the Italian Weather Ladies, a group of specially selected musicians who accompany Aidan on his musical quest. An experienced musician with hundreds of shows under his belt, Aidan has also recorded and toured around the world with Irish Meteor Award Winner, Wallis Bird, as well as releasing his own live album, "Live and Sans Souci", with his collaborators, the Italian Weather Ladies, and being selected by Music Network, to represent Ireland in the 2008 Biennale in Italy with his previous musical vehicle, "Lord Altmont".
