Harmony Springs album
I had always wanted to work on an LP sleeve and as fate had it, Anna Sheard approached me one day and asked if I would help with the artwork on a new album. The story began when Anna was heard singing in her kitchen by friends and word spread. Jim McCulloch (Soup Dragons and BMX Bandits) recruited bassist Dave McGowan, guitarist Raymond McGinley (Teenage Fanclub) and drummer Stuart Kidd (Stevie Jackson’s band). The album was recorded in Norfolk and Glasgow, and features additional contributions by Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), noted violinist John McCusker, Dave McCluskey (The Bluebells) and Peter Domberknowsky (Giant Sand).
Anna provided the screen printed artwork and Laura Spring supplied the hand-drawn elements. We decided on a tactile matt finish for both the CD and vinyl LP. The album is stunning and I was honoured to be involved.
