THE EAGERLY AWAITED DEBUT EP BY TORQUAY INDIE SINGER SONGWRITER SCOTT MORRISON IS RELEASED BY PASTIME RECORDS IN OCTOBER
This October acclaimed Torquay based indie singer songwriter Scott Morrison releases his long awaited debut EP, ‘The Corner Shop’, on Exeter independent record label, Pastime Records.
Scott Morrison (real name Phil Andrews) was for many years the singer and driving force behind successful Torquay indie band, The Morrisons, played by the late, great DJ John Peel, and more recently Scott has been plying his trade as guitarist for Exeter retro indie act, National Pastime, as well as developing a growing solo career.
The four songs on the new EP, ‘The Corner Shop’, ‘Before’, ‘Looking Down From Heaven’ and ‘A Private War’, have been produced and mixed by Andy Fonda at Off the Rails Studio, Tipton St John, and also feature Andy Ward on drums and bass guitar, and Ishbel Wenley, of The Real Ish Band, on backing vocals.
Scott Morrison was born in Southampton, but has lived in Devon for most of his life, sharing his time between Torquay and Exeter. He started playing guitar and writing songs in 1979, enjoying a successful first stint with The Morrisons as singer and guitarist between 1986 and 1988, during which time they received Radio One airplay from John Peel, and released a number of well received vinyl records.
A Morrisons’ revival between 2003 and 2013 saw the release of five further albums of original material, and their ‘Rainy Day EP’, also released on Pastime Records, achieved a notable 5 Star review in Artrocker Magazine, where writer Ric Rawlins descibed it as ‘magically delicious’.
Scott Morrison launched his solo career in the summer of 2013, drawing on 35 years of songwriting, and is delighted to finally be releasing his debut solo EP.
Exeter indie label Pastime Records was set up to promote and support indie acts recording and performing in the Exeter and Devon area, and its acts have received airplay and critical acclaim both nationally and internationally. 53 CDs have been released to date by the label, which has a retro indie feel, citing My Bloody Valentine, The Television Personalities, early Primal Scream, The Byrds, The Smiths, Belle and Sebastian, the Sarah Records bands and the C86 indie music scene among its influences.
