M G Boulter - With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie
With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie is M G Boulter’s second full-length solo release, following 2013’s The Water & the Wave. Relocating this time from the shores of the Thames Delta in Essex to the peak district of Sheffield, Boulter has worked closely with award-winning producer Andy Bell (Bellowhead, Seasick Steve and Teenage Fanclub) to produce an album of lyrical depth and quiet brilliance. As with former projects, Boulter has surrounded himself with an array of musicians from different genres to help forge his vision; here one finds Ben Nicholls (The Full English, Seth Lakeman), Toby Kearney (These New Puritans), Sheffield songwriter Neil McSweeney and folk artist Lucy Farrell, among others. With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie reaffirms M G Boulter’s ability to conjure up compelling stories and mesmeric musical arrangements.
M G Boulter is the principle songwriter and lead singer of Southend-based roots-rock band The Lucky Strikes and is a much sought after session musician who has toured with The Duke and the King, Simone Felice and Blue Rose Code, as well as recording with Dirk Powell, Rosalie Deighton and Vera Van Heeringan among many others. He has most recently been touring as a member of BBC Folk Award winner Emily Portman’s band.
