Northumberland based song-writing duo Landermason are soon to release their 6th studio album on their own label Lama Records. The combined talents of Fiona Lander and Paul Mason are well known for their unique sound which combines traditional and contemporary folk with jazz and other styles. Some of their previous recordings ‘Angel Of The North’, ‘The Reason’ and Tree Of Souls’ have gained national airplay on BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4, BBC Radio Scotland and Wales, whilst their instrumental version of ‘Dance To Your Daddy’ was used to set the scene for an episode of the BBC’s Antiques Road Show!
The new release titled Stand Together, contains eight original songs by Landermason plus a brand-new jazz arrangement of the North East traditional song ‘The Water Of Tyne’ and their own rendition of the classic standard ‘In The Wee Small Hours’. All the vocal and instrumental parts on the album were arranged and recorded by the duo, with the exception of one track where a crowd of willing local volunteers are featured singing along!
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by the duo in “the shed down the bottom of the garden”, their recording studio in Bellingham, Northumberland. The quirky album cover was designed by Paul.
