This is our debut full-length album which was released in 2013 and recorded at Broadwater Studios in Low Fell, Gateshead. What started out as an acoustic album was expanded to include many other instruments, courtesy of our talented friends - Jessica 'one take' Holmes, who often gigs with us, and Gav (producer/engineer). They were instrumental (get the pun?) in bringing our songs to life! The track below, 'Yesterday's Another Country', is exactly what it says on the tin - a country track. However, there should be something on the album for everyone. It's a musical smorgasbord of styles - a cohesive blend of blues, rock, folk and pop - all written from the heart.

Another Country – AS FAR AS YOU CAN GO ... ***
Claire Sinclair and Gary Lindley are a duo from the north- east who teamed up recently, initially to write together, but then they started gigging, and as they gathered an enthusiastic fan- base, the next move to was to make some recordings. An early demo of the catchy and well-written Sooner Or Later, led to this self-financed debut album that straddles the boundaries between country, rock, folk and good ol’ fashioned melodic pop. In the main these are intelligent, well thought out songs that explore life and relationship issues with strong melodies, catchy lyrics and inventive musical arrangements. I loved the way that Jessica Holmes’ flute is used on the folksy By A Thread. Claire’s vocals are vibrant, soulful and very clear-minded. It’s a crowded field out there, but this pair have the songs and the talent to break-out nationally.
