Songwriter Matt Hill (Quiet Loner) is inviting the public to attend the recording of his third album – a collection of self-penned protest songs entitled Greedy Magicians. Hill will be recording the album live at Sacred Trinity Chapel in Salford. As well getting to see the album recorded all concert attendees will receive a free copy of the record once it is released later in 2012.
Explaining his idea Hill said “Although my last album Spectrology was done in a recording studio the core performances were played live and I wanted to capture that intimate feel again but this time in a non-studio space. Churches have great acoustics so it made sense to do it there.”
Part of the Manchester label collective Little Red Rabbit Hill will be working with labelmate musicians James Youngjohns (Willard Grant Conspiracy, Last Harbour) and Michael Doward (Last Harbour, Samson & Delilah) and the whole project is being overseen by Sam Lench from Samson and Delilah – who recently won a weeks writing residency with the Unthanks at Band on the Wall. Compering the evening will be Salford poet Longfella, who last year was the offical Glastonbury Festival poet in residence.
