Rise: Eyes of a Blue Dog

Here's something you need to investigate further!

Eyes of a Blue Dog is a brand new project from musician/composer Rory Simmons (trumpet/guitar/vocals in Jamie's band) along with Norwegian drummer/producer Terje Evensen and vocalist Elisabeth Nygaard

The lead single Rise from the album of the same name is released today.

Beautifully packaged limited edition vinyl. Comes with glass mastered CD of the album also. *For all true audiophiles* 

Includes immediate download of 9-track album.

You may be familiar with Rory's project Fringe Magnetic and the last album Twistic featured the captivating vocals of Norwegian Elisabeth Nygaard. Read the BBC and Guardian reviews of Twistic. Jamie Cullum also guested on the album duetting with Elisabeth. Watch a live performance of that track (below)

These musicians combine elements of ambient, electronica, contemporary jazz, post rock, improv and alt pop with fire and dynamism.shim Simmons describes the album as a mix of Portishead/Hanne Hukkelberg/Bjork ish lovelyness! 

The album launch will take place at the Pizza Express Jazz Club in Dean Street, London on Friday October 19th. Book tickets here
