Coracle will finally be officially launched on 22nd June with a live UK tour kicking off on 19th June. Today I'm excited to be able to reveal Marry Waterson's masterful video for 'Darkening Bell', Coracle's opening track, which is premiering on Folk Radio UK's site. Coracles are now reaching the airwaves and Jarvis Cocker Played 'Borrowed and Blue' on his Sunday Service, which made my week! It's about 1hr 44 min in - LISTEN HERE. And last but not least the lovely people of fROOTS have put me on their front cover for their july issue, where you can read all sorts of juicy details about Coracle, hopefully all true - I've not read it yet!
Here's what the reviewers are saying:
"Dark, dark is the considerable beauty of Emily Portman's work...Portman's songs have a richness and range rarely heard elsewhere" fROOTS.
"An intensely luminous collection of songs" Folk Radio UK
"Together with her previous two albums The Glamoury and Hatchlings, Emily has created an immaculate triptych of darkly brilliant songs. Make sure to be a completist and get this in your life." English Dance & Song Magazine
"The combined beauty of Emily's lyrics and delivery is intense and alluring, and immediately locks you into Emily's world, from which you have no desire to escape although the darkness therein" Fatea
