Last year I bought an album that might have slipped through the net for a few of you music lovers out there.
It comes from the Rooksmere Records stable and is a debut album by singer/songwriter Fabian Holland.
Recorded at Rooksmere Studios and released on Rooksmere Records with producer Mark Hutchinson at the helm, the debut has been deliberately kept simple.

The majority of the album contains Fabian's songs with a brace of Traditional tunes Banks Of The Dee & Dr Price and a Blues standard, Hard Time Killing Floor Blues.
His songwriting style is very much in the story-telling vein, similar that that of fellow labelmate Blair Dunlop and he has a lovely fluid guitar style honed over many years of playing.
Fabian is currently working on album number two, so if his debut has passed you by, it may well be time to investigate further.
