New Album: A Ghost Inside – out 11/09 but CDs available now!
I am hugely excited to announce that my new record ‘A Ghost Inside’ is released digitally on 11th September. I am immensely proud of this record. It’s the first album that I’ve entirely self-produced, and I think it has some of my best songs on it too.
CDs are available now. My live album ‘The Ghost is Live!’ was designed to accompany this record, and so we are doing a special offer when the two CDs are bought together… Get ‘The Ghost is Live!’ for just £4 when you by ‘A Ghost Inside’ too!
On bandcamp, simply add both CDs to your cart, but enter the discount code twoghosts when adding ‘The Ghost Is Live!’
Henry Bateman's songwriting has a maturity and nuance that suggests a seasoned pro with a life filled with experiences to draw on so it always comes as a shock that he is as young as he is. His music is always thoughtful and considered and he creates completely unique and emotional sonic landscapes with his beautifully crafted narratives and sound worlds. His craftsmanship and his attention to detail is clear in every musical decision he makes and the effort and work he puts in is an inspiration to all of us.
Hide & Seek is an album that in some ways redefines what folk music can be. While working within the genre, he manages to find new and unique ways to express himself....Bateman is perhaps the greatest undiscovered talent today.
