EMILY BARKER & THE RED CLAY HALO + GILL SANDELL

8th November 2011

Hailing from Bridgetown, Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving melody and words.

Together with her band The Red Clay Halo, she has recorded three albums, dazzled audiences at music festivals and seen her song ‘Nostalgia’ become the Bafta-winning theme tune to BBC One drama Wallander starring British actor Kenneth Branagh.

February 2011 saw the release of Almanac, attracting loads of plays on BBC 6 Music, Radio 2 and Radio 4’ Loose Ends. A stream of sold-out UK tour dates followed, culminating in a rapturously received show at London’s St Giles-In-The-Fields church at which Almanac was performed in its entirety including a stunning, stark version of Pause, soon to feature as the theme to forthcoming BBC 2 drama The Shadowline.

The band’s albums are entirely self-financed and released on Emily’s own imprint Everyone Sang.

“This is a dream of a record. A new Marling, then? No, Barker offers something else..." BBC Music editor’s choice Feb 2011.
