New MHS track (home demo) on Xtra Mile Recordings 'Xtra Mile High' club 'Smokin' compilation


Hi All

I'm pleased to announce a fantastic new compilation from Xtra Mile Recordings, the label I'm (MHS) signed to. It’s a 42 track whopper, featuring XM signed artists and their choice of unsigned artist — and XM say it is 'brilliant from start to finish'. It features a new MHS track of mine called 'Why Do They Go So Soon'. I should qualify by saying it is a home demo, but one I'm excited by, and is one of many new MHS tracks I'm working on for the next new album.

I'm also delighted that it has my 'unsigned' artist choice Sorren MacIean on there too. Sorren is also from Mull and some of you will have seen him in the MHS live set-up, and his contribution is called 'Either Way'. 

Release date is 11th August 2014 Read all about it!

Pre-order now here from iTunes and Xtra Mile Recordings

Next stop for me is MHS landing on my neighbouring island at the Tiree Music Festival Sat 19th July (it's a bucket list tick — cant believe I've never been!)
