Product Description

Product Description

Following the farewell tour of Waking the Witch in spring 2008, and armed with a bunch of brand new songs, Patsy set about recording a solo album, 'Little Piece of England'. She teamed up with producer/guitarist Sam Bartholomew with the aim of making a stripped back recording that felt as close to a real, unamplified, acoustic sound as possible
Unlike her previous recordings (With My Boots On 1996 and Breathe Me 1997) Patsy decided against multi-tracking her own vocals for harmonies. "After working with the Witches, it would have seemed really strange to sing along with myself. I love the textures provided by different people's voices so this time I've used some male vocals from Sam and others by the excellent Gina Dootson." Chumbawhamba's Harry Hamer also joins the line-up on percussion.
Contrasting with a CD booklet of flamboyant artwork, the album is a subtle snapshot of England in song. Weaving a light and shade tapestry of English people and places around more personal numbers it manages to feel both nostalgic and contemporary, highlighting her intuitive lightness of touch.

Patsy Matheson - A Little Piece Of England (Witch)
A founding member and one quarter of the award winning, all-female acoustic group, Waking the Witch, Patsy Matheson has had a busy decade touring and recording with one of the outstanding groups on the British folk circuit. In fact, A Little Piece Of England is her first solo album since 1996's With My Boots On, and it's a winning return, and one that nestles comfortably with the current crop of female singer-songwriters.

Her style is less overtly `folky' than one might expect, though lyrically, she focuses on a number of issues that effect modern life, surely a prerequisite of any contemporary folk writer and performer. "Precious Little Soldier" touches on the Iraq war and "Treading Water Town" and "Play The Game" speak for themselves. Of course, relationships, in all their many aspects, are also explored, though without too much in the way of cliché, and all handsomely delivered with Matheson's pensive voice and gentle guitar. 8/10.
