“These songs and these people are so warm and wonderful, the music heartens my soul. I love the deep humour and harmony, the pathos and the charm. These songs stand out like beams of light on a misty dark night..." – Chris Difford, Squeeze

Mercury-Prize Nominee King Creosote and Skydiggers’ Michael Johnston have forged a unique musical partnership.

“The Bound Of The Red Deer," their ten-song collaborative debut, is informed by ten years of change, friendship, travel and long-distance correspondence. Recorded in Toronto by Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre), “The Bound Of The Red Deer” is a collection of heartfelt songs anchored by acoustic guitar, piano, ambient textures and an endearing vocal blend of Scots/Canadian accents.

King Creosote (Kenny Anderson) and Michael met in 2006 at a songwriter's retreat in Scotland. They hit it off quickly, and wrote two songs in as many hours. Along with six of the other musicians at the retreat, they formed a band called The Burns Unit.

After the band amicably split in 2012, Kenny and Michael set to completing songs that would become “The Bound Of The Red Deer." Included on the album the earliest songs they wrote together, alongside collaborations with Karine Polwart and Emma Pollock (of the Delgados), and musical contributions from Texas musician Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams).

In May and June 2016, King Creosote and Michael Johnston will perform their first duo shows in over four years to celebrate the long-awaited release of “The Bound Of The Red Deer".

KC & Norman in the same room!!!! Nobody tell Mrs. C otherwise she'll be plotting a weekend trip to Ontario.

Isn't it Dan Withered Hand's ambition to write a song with Norman Blake? If only he knew someone who could facilitate that?

Forwarding this info to all my chums in Ontario.

Kwaing - I would recommend you guys try and get a gig in Newfoundland (St John's maybe?) - you'd go down a storm there!

The wife and I will be there (so pumped about this). Last time we saw them at the Jane Bond it was a very memorable night. Kenny, I'll buy you a Kriek if that's still your tipple of choice.

It's a very nice fruity beer from Belgium: great for a parched throat on hot summer nights.
