Peace, Now

This video was drawn and filmed over three days in the boiler space of my attic. It is posted today in memory of my Auntie Mairi, who wrote the words, and her wee boy, my cousin Finn, who was only able to join us in the world for a short time on the 25th May, 2002.



The next Lidh video is another collaboration with the incredible Sparkwork, and has been a real labour of love. It accompanies the song ‘Peace, Now’, and I’ll be sharing it with you all tomorrow…


‘Quite at Ease’

This video is full of my family’s old cine-footage, and after a year in which so much has changed, it seemed right to use it now. Big thank you to Sparkwork, who has done a sterling job, as ever, of arranging the footage in such a poignant way. I hope and think that it will resonate with some, especially at this time of year. The song itself was recorded at Chamber Studio, produced by Jamie Watson with the Phoenix and Lidh, and engineered by Graeme Young. It features the musical talents of RM Hubbert, Gordon Keen, Raymond Boyle, Pete Harvey, Luke Sutherland and my dear Faither. I do hope you enjoy, and a very Happy New Year to all x

Here it is folks, the video for Rockpool Hospital!

I had the most amazing three days in Norway. It was crazy, jam-packed, hilarious, emotional and totally inspiring. It was an honour and a pleasure to work with all of these incredibly talented people on this video. I am eternally grateful to them!
