The multi – talented Raasay, will perform three half hour solo piano performances from 7:00pm at Bamburgh House Arts Centre as part of ‘The Late Shows’ culture crawl in Newcastle over the weekend of May 18th & 19th, Information at http://thelateshows.org.uk.

The ‘Still’ EP is the follow up to last year’s double A side single ‘(still the) Horizon’ / ‘Afore (sun)’ and features four brand new tracks including the lead single ‘Over Blue’:

Inspired by the recent purchase of his first piano from a lady in Scarborough, the music presented here attempts to capture Raasay’s deep exploration of the sounds and differing textures from said instrument. Beautifully crafted folk and electronica blend effortlessly and the result sees him twist between melancholy and menace to great effect.

Taking his surname from an Island off the West Coast of Scotland where he spent his childhood holidays, Cal Raasay is the moniker of songwriter, composer and producer Callum Lawson. He released his debut five track EP ’57 – 6′ in April last year which was the result of twelve months spent building a studio in his hometown of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Acclaimed by local press and featured on a number of playlists, the EP was also picked up by radio and was played by Nick Roberts at BBC Introducing North East and BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq. A quick follow up, the aforementioned  ‘(still the) Horizon’ / ‘Afore (sun)’ single, arrived just a month later and the sparser and more reflective sound of the two songs saw him compared to artists such as Nils Frahm and Bon Iver. 

For the recent annual international Piano Day event in March, Cal released a solo piano piece entitled ‘Three’, which was included on the official Piano Day Playlist curated by the events founder Nils Frahm.
