No Comments

As well as her solo work with Plankton Records, Vivienne is currently playing keyboards for the Gospel band “The Risen”. Vivienne informed us, “A Major Record Label A & R Rep contacted the band recently (Representing 2 Major Record Labels) and is coming along to a Showcase event that we’ve organised on this coming Saturday Night to hear & watch us “The Risen” live. The band will be performing between 6-8.00pm on 19th July at St Aiden’s Centre, Clifton Street, Middlesborough, TS1 4BZ. We would really love and appreciate people coming along if they’re free to support us and add to the atmosphere for this important event. It’s our hope & prayer that we will be able to take the message of the Gospel, through Gospel Music, even further afield into the UK & beyond. This Showcase has been set up at the record label’s request. So, we have been in full-time rehearsals for 4 weeks working very hard. The event will consist of Gospel Classics alongside the band’s our own lively authentic style. Jesus is already Famous, this is the band’s offering to spread the Gospel a little further in our corner of the world. Please pray for this opportunity for the band & support us if you can, either in person or by prayer!”
Vivienne’s highly acclaimed solo album “Veiled in Mystery is available Worldwide from all major music download and streaming sites as well as on CD from this website.

New Liz Clarke video

No Comments

We’ve just posted a new video of Liz Clarke’s beautiful atmospheric version of the traditional folk song “Red Red Rose”.

The song features a sparse guitar arrangement which was written, performed (and produced) by Paul Mcilwaine and it perfectly backs Liz’s trademark pure and clear vocals.

This is the 2nd video of a song taken from her latest album DESTINY which features a wide range of musical styles and genres, including one other equally beautiful traditional folk song.

The album (and this song)  is available from all major music download sites worldwide and also on CD from this website (click on this link): http://planktonrecords.co.uk/discography/destiny/
