Liz Paul Video shot

Producer posts new Liz Clarke video

No Comments

Mr Paul Mcilwaine, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, co-writer and producer of Liz Clarke’s latest album DESTINY has posted a video he’s made for one of the album tracks to YouTube.

“Burnin’ With the Blues” is a great slow blues which highlights both Liz’s voice and Paul’s great guitar playing. As well as all of his musical skills, Paul is a gifted photographer too and he certainly combines this gifting with his love of guitars on this video!

Here’s the link to the video for you to enjoy too: http://youtu.be/h7-P1c_IzY0

Echo’s recent appearance at the Kingstock Festival has been featured in a great article about the Festival by Tony Cummings  which was posted by top CCM site CrossRhythms.

It’s a long, but very interesting article that’s well worth a read. As well as commenting on several of the acts who performed, Tony gives his thoughts on the festival and the future of such festivals in the UK. We at Plankton Records share his hopes and desires for the future!

Here’s the link to the whole article (but if you only want to read the section about Echo it’s right at the top of page 2):  http://www.crossrhythms.co.uk/articles/music/KingsStock
