SHroudings

Shroudings is my newest musical project. I'm currently working on a debut record, due for completion some time in late 2018. Songs are built around fingerpicking on various stringed instruments, and unfold in some surprising directions from there. Inevitably, I've drafted in a few friends to help with the recording and instrumentation, so calling this a "solo" undertaking would be highly misleading. I'll update this page occasionally with some works-in-progress. Meanwhile, the credits for the record look something like this:

Robin Dixon: voice, guitar, banjo, ukulele, cello, vihuela, cuatro, double bass, piano, autoharp, organ, lyrics

Phillippa Murphy-Haste: viola, clarinet, bass clarinet, wind and string arrangements

Mirabai Peart: violin, string arrangements

Jess Randall: violin, fiddle, nyckelharpa, string arrangements

Chris Browne: baritone saxophone

Dave Carr: guitar, acoustic bass guitar

Sophie Grattan-Smith: trumpet

Stu West: trumpet, flugelhorn

Ben James: drums

Alex Tolmie: voice, lyrics, vocal arrangements

Jason Tolmie: lyrics, vocal arrangements

Lydia Alexander: lyrics, moral support

Haidee Ireland, Libby Bramble, Rubaiyat Howlader, Tim Byron, Vanessa Fookes, Paul Andrews, Richard Parkin, Dave Carr, Mahesh Radhakrishnan, Betony Dircks: choir vocals

Ben Worsey at Everland Studios: recording, engineering

Tony Dupé at abandoned fireworks factory: recording, mixing, arrangements

Shroudings plays live very rarely. On these occasions, the live band has included Mirabai Peart, Peter Hollo, Kell Derrig-Hall, Phillippa Murphy-Haste, Jessica Lyons, Rubaiyat Howlader, Piers Twomey, Sonia Zadro, Libby Bramble, and Emily Edwards.
