The Oban Times - - Leisure -

AN TO­BAR wel­comes singer-song­writer and gui­tarist El­liott Mor­ris to Tober­mory on Tues­day Au­gust 9 as part of his nine-show Lakes, High­lands and Is­lands’ tour, ahead of his de­but al­bum re­lease. BBC arts edi­tor Will Gom­pertz has de­scribed the folk and blues mu­si­cian mu­sic as ‘fan­tas­tic…. re­ally high qual­ity stuff’, while co­me­dian Dave Gor­man of the TV show Modern Life Is Good­ish said ‘his gui­tar play­ing is in­tri­cate and skil­ful and his voice is strong and hon­est … heart­felt folky pop’.

Join­ing El­liott on the tour will be friend and film­maker Chris ‘Bing’ Bing­ham, known on YouTube as Slo­mo­zovo, who will be doc­u­ment­ing the jour­ney for fundrais­ing fans. The al­bum will be sup­ported by the crowd­fund­ing plat­form Pledge Mu­sic, which al­lows fans to be­come a part of the mu­sic mak­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, gain­ing ac­cess to ex­clu­sive con­tent and see­ing pledger- only up­dates that pro­vide in­sight into the mu­sic.

‘This tour is a re­ally ex­cit­ing one for me,’ said Mor­ris, who av­er­ages 120 live shows a year.

‘Us­ing Pledge Mu­sic lets me of­fer my au­di­ence far more than if I were to re­lease by my­self through a la­bel.

‘With the ad­vance sup­port of my lis­ten­ers, I can of­fer not just phys­i­cal CDs, but I can re­lease the al­bum on vinyl and pro­vide re­ally spe­cial ex­tras such as signed art­work prints, hand­writ­ten lyric sheets and bonus discs. I can also send ex­clu­sive up­dates from the road and the stu­dio di­rectly to pledgers.’ For more in­for­ma­tion visit his web­site or Face­book page.
