The new album from former Waking the Witch member Patsy Matheson, has taken the music world by storm, not yet released but already greatly applauded by industry insiders.

All 10 songs on the album have been written by Patsy who has also played a number of the instruments on the tracks.  Hugh Whitaker (Housemartins) contributed by playing drums and shaker, and Jon Short (Deep Sky Divers) played double bass.  It has taken 2 years for the album to have been lovingly put together and Patsy is pleased with the outcome.  Rightly so.

Stories of Angels and Guitars is full of heart wrenching lyrics and melodies.  A haunting album with an exquisite simple construction of each track.  The words are powerful enough without having to have a huge amount of backing music.  All kept very simply acoustic, and you can just lie back and enjoy, and let the words wash over you.  A couple of the numbers would not be out of place in a Jazz or Blues café.  The first track Under Your Wing is already a live favourite in UK acoustic clubs.

All the songs have their own story and tell tales of loneliness, anguish,  perished loved ones, love lost, bleeding hearts, a tragic RAF Pilot and of course Angels.

Stories of Angels and Guitars will be released on January 16th 2012 on Tomorrow Records.
