Title: New Skin
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Turbulent and often heart chilling lyrics collide with melodic soundscapes, endearing the listener with tales of warmth, woe and wonder, as the band's trademark melancholy strings and joyful rich harmonies intertwine to form a uniquely ethereal collection of haunting yet powerful songs. Bridie Jackson and The Arbour are "a midnight dark yet airily bright breath of fresh folkish air" (Clash) Celebrated for both their unusual instrumentation, and intriguing harmonies, Bridie Jackson & The Arbour are frequently proclaimed to be completely unique, blending influences as diverse as gospel, baroque and flamenco, with an infusion of percussion, fiddle, cello and a lead vocal of spine-tingling beauty. 'Blissful' - Lauren Laverne, 6 Music 'An evocative, inimitable sound' - Tipping Point 'Refreshingly unpretentious and movingly soulful' - The Telegraph (Prolong) 'The remarkable voice of Bridie Jackson is beautiful yet haunting' - The Guardian (Scarecrow) 'Lush instrumentation, intelligent poetic lyrics, and a haunting vocal that seems to have arrived via the Elizabeth Fraser school of celestial beauty prove Bridie Jackson and The Arbour are something rather special indeed.' - Andy Von Pip, Team Freshnet (We Talked Again) 'This could quite easily soundtrack a scene from something as similarly layered as Game of Thrones. It's beautiful yet bleak and has an otherworldly air that's all their own.' - Musika (We Talked Again) Recording of the album was supported by a Help Musicians UK Emerging Excellence Award and City Music Foundation.
