Become the One You Love

I’m proud to finally announce the release, this week, of ‘Become the One You Love’ -  the debut album by Artmagic, which is available as a deluxe digi-pack featuring my design and illustration. The album can now be purchased from their website here.

Artmagic is a collaborative project between guitarist Richard Oakes and singer Sean McGhee. Richard is the guitarist in Suede, while Sean is a prolific songwriter, engineer and producer who has worked with the likes of Britney Spears, Robyn and Sugababes.
The album has a launch event next Monday (July 9th) at St Pancras Old Church, including a full band performance and support from the brilliant Andrew Montgomery  – details here.

Richard and I were at school together – and considering that we’ve been friends since we were both squeaky voiced thirteen year olds, it’s been a real delight to finally work together professionally on a grown up project (here’s an old blog-post about our previous, decidedly more youthful collaboration...).

I have contributed a total of twelve images to the digipack and accompanying twenty page lyrics book, including individual portraits of Sean and Richard. Current single ‘Forever in Negative’ and debut EP ‘I Keep on Walking’ are both still available from their online shop – with a further single slated for release later in the year.
