Ishmael's last gig of the year is happening tomorrow

Profile.jpg

It's been a great year for the good ship Ishmael. We released an album in May that has been well received by people and has set a standard for what comes in 2018.

On Tuesday 5 December we will be playing our last gig of the year at The Glebe in Stoke. Support will be in the shape of Jay Johnson. Come down and celebrate with us.

A Sleeping Whale Wakes

Ishmael is slumbering at the moment, getting ready to surface in the coming months. We've started recording new ideas, talking about our annual Christmas EP and some creative ideas for music making in 2018.  

The only bad part of being in a band comprised of people who are all in about five other bands means there are periods when we all have to go off and work on our other projects. More often then not with each other. We thought we'd let you know what everyone is up to. 

Gary is working hard on his folk roots project, Wilcox:Hulse, with long term collaborator Phil Hulse, they put out a single today from their new album, listen to it on DROMA's Bandcamp pageRob has released the third TMC single this year, prolific work from the indie pop masters, make sure you listen to 'End of the World.' Matt has been appearing across a lot of releases, but his stunning work on the Wilcox:Hulse album deserves a special mention, get All Change now, you won't regret it. Sophie has, like Matt, been playing on everything but a real shout out should be directed at her stunning work on TASKRZ's latest releases that dropped in early August, download both of them pronto. Last but not least, Jack has been the shadowy figure behind all of these projects, he recently did a long form interview with E MAJOR blog, where he went to great lengths to explain all the different musical projects he's got his finger in.

We'll be back on the road in December when we appear at The Glebe in Stoke, then a month later at The Swan Inn in Stone. You'll hear from that prior to that as the whale wakes. 

Speak soon,
