First solo endeavor since departing from Cherish the Ladies

“Heidi Talbot sings in a voice that’s both awestruck and tender.”

Nashville, TN (February 12, 2008) - Look out for a new star in the glittering firmament of great Irish singers: with the release of her new album In Love and Light, Heidi Talbot is truly set to shine. After five years as lead singer with the Irish-American supergroup Cherish the Ladies, and high praise for her debut solo outing, 2004’s Distant Future, Talbot now extends her talents over a broader, bolder musical canvas, in company with a stellar cast of guests. Drawing on the full, diverse spectrum of influences that inform her singing, In Love and Light complements Talbot’s exquisitely expressive, honeyed yet ardent voice with guest contributions from producer Boo Hewerdine, Eddi Reader, ex-Solas guitarist John Doyle, fiddler John McCusker and flute/whistle ace Michael McGoldrick.

The launch of In Love and Light at Glasgow’s world-renowned Celtic Connections festival last month kicked off an exciting year for Talbot, who’ll be featured as a guest on forthcoming albums by Radiohead drummer Philip Selway and the new trio collaboration of John McCusker, Kris Drever and Idlewild singer Roddy Woomble. Stay tuned for upcoming reviews in Harp and Irish America Magazine.
