New album ‘Stories of Angels & Guitars' will be released on Tomorrow Records (TRCD2) on 16th January and will be available on CD and download through all major outlets. It features ten new songs on guitar and mandolin, with guest appearances from Hugh Whitaker (The Housemartins) on drums, and Jon Short on double bass. I will be touring with Becky Mills throughout the UK in February and March to support the release.

‘Unhurried and warmly recorded, Patsy Matheson's new set of songs elevates her performances to a remarkable level. It takes a confident soul to leave an album as unadorned as this but the simplicity here is fundamental. Those who hunger for the sound of wood, strings and voice will want to dive right in.’ – David Kushar, Spiral Earth

‘The angels are present from the start ...a confident strength and a belief in every word she sings’ – Allan Wilkinson, Northern Sky
