Plumhall Announce Release of Third Studio Album ‘One Star Awake’

Apr 15, 2024

PLUMHALL‘s eagerly awaited third studio album One Star Awake, written and arranged by singer songwriter duo Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall is to be released on the 7th June.

The critically acclaimed husband and wife team use a mesmerising combination of acoustic and electric instruments (occasionally with electronica) to create breath taking soundscapes to their powerful original songs. They are renowned for their exquisite vocal harmonies and scintillating live guitar playing.

Produced by David P Crickmore of Fiat Lux the new album features violin by Fairport Convention’s Ric Sanders on the title track One Star Awake, flute by Ranagri’s Eliza Marshall on This Room (Locks & Bolts), drums by James Crickmore and extra instrumentation by David P Crickmore.

Since their debut album Thundercloud in 2014, they have toured all over the world, toured and performed with Fairport Convention, sung onstage with Al Stewart at the London Palladium and Cadogan Hall, and written a song for (as well as appearing in and curating the traditional music for) the film The Runaways (starring Mark Addy, Tara Fitzgerald and Molly Windsor).

One Star Awake includes that song as well as 10 others. It mixes a contemporary folk and roots sound with elements of electronica and orchestration, and features PLUMHALL‘s trademark sumptuous vocal harmonies.

The album is available to pre order* now, or if you are lucky enough to have booked to see them live, (Venues selling out quickly) you can snap up a copy at one of the performances.
