BLAIR DUNLOP – 

Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, released his acclaimed album ‘House Of Jacks’ in mid 2014. His second full length record lived up to the promise of his 2012 debut (the quality of which contributed to his winning the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award) and cemented his place as one of Britain’s most exciting talents to come from the folk scene. The Guardian stated that the ‘House Of Jacks’ proves Blair is ‘an increasingly adventurous songwriter’, Uncut reviewed it as ‘thoughtful and exploratory’, The Independent on Sunday described it as ‘fluent, lamentory and accomplished’ while Q Magazine wrote that House of Jacks is ‘an exciting glimpse of where traditional folk might go’.

Now 2 albums in and having created a solid fan-base across the U.K. Blair has created his own label and partnered up with Absolute Label Services for the next exciting stage in his career.

Blair releases his new album ‘Gilded’ on 6th May 2010
The album is supported by a full UK tour and a number of festival appearances over the summer

Press quotes
“Dunlop’s voice is quietly assured and he strikes me as the kind of guy who would melt hearts and win friends without much effort but nor would he gloat about such powers of persuasion. A gentle but firm talent, then, and one that has some distance left to run. “

“…a neat fusion of tradition and individuality.…The song, though, is pure Blair Dunlop. At ease with himself, the gentle yet powerful delivery has a warm, delicate embrace.”
