Hushman is the new project from renowned folk musician, singer & songwriter Ewan MacPherson. Originally hailing from Liverpool and a graduate of ‘Paul McCartney’s Fame School’ LIPA, with family ties to Scotland, Ireland and Wales, Ewan moved to Edinburgh in 1999 where he is now a recongised figure on the vibrant Scottish music scene, performing and writing with Scottish Indie folk band Salt House (also released on Hudson Records) & Scottish Acid folk legends, Shooglenifty, amongst others.
Likened to Ben Howard, John Martyn and Nick Drake, the music and songs Hushman is producing are painted and sculpted to the backdrop of the Scottish Highlands, the walls of the shed they have been recorded in are thin; black grouse, torrential rain and gales subtly underpin Hushman’s music through the cabin walls.
Hushman is released on Hudson Records on 18/11/22 and is accompanied by a series of films made in the small halls of the Highlands of Scotland. The album features label friends Hannah Read on backing vocals, Lauren MacColl (Rant, Heal & Harrow) on strings, Ben Nichols (Seth Lakeman, Nadine Shah) on Bass and James Mackintosh (Shooglenifty, Capercaille) on percussion.
