It’s the perfect song for cold winter’s night.
And Ayrshire songman Alan Frew has revealed that it’s the first of many, for he will release a brand new album in the new year.
MaryGo is the first song that the modest musician has recorded since his Go Easy debut album more than two years ago.
Already released as a single, it sets the tone for what promises to show just how talented this Troon man really is.
Alan was inspired by the cold, clear nights to pen MaryGo, which tells the story of someone coming to life when the snow falls in darkness.
This wonderful lyrical track not beautifully showcases Alan’s warm and chilled out voice, it a perfect platform for his captivating guitar sound.
Alan is also working on a stripped down acoustic album with Mark Rafferty –nephew of the late Gerry Rafferty.
The pair regularly collaborate in live gigs and plan to record each song in a different location.
They are in the process of organising gigs to run alongside the recording process.
Alan explained: “I thought it would be nice to do a kind of studio tour and have a slightly different sound/vibe to each track.
“We have became friends with several producers over the years so we had an idea to let them all have some individual input on the album.
“The first person we recorded with was Clark Sorley in Kilmarnock who produced the debut album Go Easy.
“The second track will be recorded by Isaac Sutherland from Dunnet head who lives in a lighthouse in the northern most part of mainland Britain looking out to the Orkney Isles. He has a built in studio room in the lighthouse which sits over a 400 foot cliff looking out to Orkney. I introduced Mark to Isaac recently on our way home from our tour of Orkney.”
Alan and Mark will also play at the Gaiety studio theatre with Siobhan Wilson on Friday, February 8.
Tickets are £10 and available from the box office on 01292 288235.
