Saint McCabe Press, Reviews etc....

"A raw but resonantly personal '80s-referencing fusion of Billy Bragg-style folk politicking with a devil-may-care Hi-NRG sheen - 4/5" 
Review for the Saint McCabe EP from The List (November 2017)

"Under his new guise and change of musical direction, McCabe layers on sentimental synths, sprinkling in some addictive melodies for good measure to deliver a quintessentially English take of the quiet madness of life lived in the sprawling terraced housing in the North of England." 
Review of the track Everything That's English by Electronic North (October 2017)

"What marks out Saint McCabe a clear space of his own is the impressive and expressive vocal which is able to deliver a lilting cadence of ever changing movement." (note - I have no idea what that means but it seems nice!)
Review of the Saint McCabe EP by Emerging Indie Bands (September 2017)

A wee nice posting of the Saint EP appeared on the Jockrock website (October 2017)

Thanks to the Curved Flow channel for posting the full EP on youtube (October 2017)

Here's a wee write up from my first gig in Edinburgh by The Wee Review (for those outside of Scotland, that mean's 'little' review, not a review of urine). (October 2017)

Tracks from my EP have appeared on a number of radio stations; thanks to Amazing Radio (Jim Gallantly), Artefaktor Radio, Under The Pavement, Curved Flow, El Cactus Radiozine, Analogue Trash Radio, Ship Full of Bombs and anyone else I might have missed!

I am a Saint

7th July 2017....

My new performance name is Saint McCabe, and new music is coming very soon.

My debut EP as Saint McCabe will be recorded in France with the inimitable French art-pop act Kings Queer in the beautiful City of Besançon in August 2017. The release will likely be in late September/early October.

The music will be pop, slightly melancholic, a tad dark, and then later...whatever I want it to be. I have been inspired by cold wave music, underground European electronic acts, over-the-top Eurovision performances and tarot cards. 

I am about to start work with the very talented Robert Motyka from Wee Dog Design on creating an exciting visual show for my live performances.  

My debut gig is booked for Edinburgh on 29th October, as part of the incredible Miss Annabel Sings Show (a spin-off from Dive Queer Party). I’ll then be performing in Vienna with my favourite DIY band First Fatal Kiss in the winter. More news on the gigs later this year! Onwards and upwards!

Love Saint McCabe xx
