Garden Ruin: primer

As my singer-songwriter project Garden Ruin prepares to play its first proper show on the 9th of March at the Gaslight Tavern, I’ve been spending a bit of time updating the various Garden Ruin platforms with new content and updated info. If all goes well on the night, I’m hoping to play more shows this year.

A primer of Garden Ruin tracks can be found below.

New Garden Ruin album: Southern Gothic

Southern Gothic is the first proper Garden Ruin release since the 2013 EP, Horseplay. 

An album dedicated some of the haunts and curios discovered and recovered around my hometown. Thoughts also go out to the ghosts of stylus grooves, the remains of demolished partitions, the streets still without streetlights, the last of the dirt roads, inevitable boredom, recurring dreams of guarding 3 Field Street at night, Jason Molina, David Bowie and Frank Cook.
