Strange Boy awarded Emerging Artist Fund

I'm really pleased that Strange Boy has been awarded the Emerging Artist Fund 2017, a grant  made possible by Help Musicians UK and Pledge Music.

We are using the financial help to go to New York this summer to record our next EP with the wonderful Jake Aron. We met Jake in Iceland last year and are really looking forward to working with him. We'll be having the EP mastered by Valgeir Sigurðsson, who did some amazing work on our Annunciation EP which we are releasing soon.

In order to receive the grant we need to run a Pledge Campaign, where fans can preorder our upcoming releases and bur some other fun things. Please have a look at our store here!!

Matt always describes our live set up as 'moody Pet Shop Boys'. Here we are rubbing shoulders with them on the Pledge website:

 

 

 

Annunciation EP coming soon

This summer is getting busy with lots of musical projects, which is very exciting. One of the big things happening is...

STRANGE BOY will be releasing our debut EP, Annunciation, on August 18th. We made it almost a year ago, so I'm really excited to be finally putting it out there.

We've made some beautiful handmade CDs, with artwork by my very own grandma, Lois Brunt! It looks like this:

This week I turn 24. In honour of my becoming something more of an adult I have decided to update this news section more frequently. 

Emmy the Great was 24 once! She wrote a song about it and name-drops one of my absolute <3s, Diane Cluck:
