TOM McSHANE announces new album “The Ural Winter” OUT: June 22nd

TOM McSHANE ‘THE URAL WINTER’  ALBUM OUT: June 22nd  + Launch gig June 22nd Oh Yeah Music Centre, Belfast.

Back in July 2010, Tom McShane and his assembled band congregated in the Oh Yeah! Centre in Belfast to record his debut album within two live sessions held in front of a small audience.

A thought provoking trip across America with his guitar provided the inspiration for the unique and intimate manner in which this album was created. The melancholic and fragile tone to Tom’s voice is particularly felt and portrayed in ‘The Ural Winter’. One which intertwined with the rich trumpet sounds on ‘My Nadir’ elicits an emotional, almost tear-jerking response.

What Tom himself has described as a terrifying experience has certainly merited his leap of faith and the end result is a raw, beautifully personal record which will be forever imprinted on the minds of the audience and listeners alike.

Quote: “Tom’s album is the most genuine record I’ve heard in a very long time – I
was dragged in and left spellbound. Every lyric, every change in tone,
every subtle detail….it all stands out and shine’s through. An album for
the headphones, an album to really cherish. A remarkable collection of
Songs”. (Rigsy, BBC Across The Line)
