Lavinia Blackwall – debut album


Any fans of high-end folk pop may wish to pre-order the debut album from singer-songrwriter Lavinia Blackwall via this link; Muggington Lane End album (Bandcamp)

‘Vinnie’ will be known to many as the former singer of Trembling Bells, the Scottish folk group who released several albums and singles between 2009-2018. Vinnie is backed on her solo recordings by a crack team of musicians known collectively as Stilton; Marco Rea (The Wellgreen, Marbles), Seb Jonsen (Helicon, Tomorrow Syndicate) and Jim McGoldrick (The Wellgreen).

Vinnie has a beautifully clear, pure voice and soaring vocal style which has drawn comparisons to Fairport Convention’s Sandy Denny in the music press. Vinnie writes remarkable music and lyrics as is evidenced by the singles, Waiting for tomorrow, Troublemakers and current single John’s gone.

Lavinia Blackwall and Stilton are big favourites of the Strand records team. We hope you enjoy them too.



A song for these times . . .


Chinofeldy “Stay home”

“Stay Home” is the new single from Chinofeldy, which is the brainchild of Joe Kane and Marco Rea, two of Glasgow’s most prolific songwriter/producers.

With help from psych-folk legend Lavinia Blackwall and a host of fab friends and lovers from around the world, Chinofeldy have crafted a heartfelt anthem for our times. Written and recorded over a weekend in lockdown, “Stay Home” was realised by bouncing tracks across time and space resulting in an epic production!

All Proceeds from Bandcamp donations for the single go to the NHS covid-19 appeal.

Share the love folks . . . @chinofeldy @marcorea1 @vinnieblackwall
