426 0

Another of our “Ones to Watch” list for 2024 has made a huge start to the year, as Middlesbrough singer-songwriter, Amelia Coburn, has announced details of her debut album and released a brand new single

When The Tide Rolls In follows the impressive 2023 track, See Saw, and will feature on Amelia’s debut album,Between The Moon and The Milkman, out March 8th 2024.

Produced by Bill Ryder-Jones, a founding member of The Coral, the first full length release delves into personal stories ranging from her native North East through to Mexico City, and is one of the most eagerly anticipated debuts of 2024.

Bill commented on the collaboration: “I’ve never in my life worked with someone quite like Amelia and I still can’t quite put my finger on what she is! That’s a compliment by the way.

“The came in with these incredibly clever, moving songs that just blew me away… It would’ve taken me a day to record just her and her uke but she wanted a bigger sound, so we had a lot of playing around with these arrangements.”

With BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards finalist recognition and the UKE Magazine’s Breakthrough Artist Award already under her belt, Amelia has now also joined up with English Folk Expo’s Artist Mentoring Scheme, and is tipped for big things in the genre.

Amelia commented on the new single: “I tend to open my live sets with When The Tide Rolls In, so it always felt like the opening track on an album. I wrote it in Mexico after a sinister encounter which inspired the slightly unsettling mood. I knew within an hour of Bill working on the piece that he totally understood where the music was coming from and by the end of the day it was pretty much in the bag.

“Many thought working with Bill was an unusual choice, as I am known primarily in the folk world, but knowing the variety and calibre of artists he has worked with as well as his own material, I was confident he could bring something different out of the songs, as he has done here.”

‘Between The Moon and The Milkman’ is set for release March 8th 2024 and is available to pre-order now.
