Hello and welcome to the first Kscope Podcast of 2016.
PLENTY going on at the label this year!
We start with an introduction to Catherine Anne Davies PhD, Simple Minds’ keyboardist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, PKA as The Anchoress for her debut album out now on Kscope,‘Confessions of a Romance Novelist’ – which is “sneaking big ideas past the listeners of daytime radio” (Q Magazine).
Some of the LP was co-produced and written with Mansun’s creative force Paul Draper (Catherine is currently helping Paul with his first solo album) so we’ll hear how the two met - as well as Catherine’s forthright opinions on gender in rock.
PLUS a track from the current album from Steven Wilson AND an update on the current Kscope artists on tour.
IT’S ALL HAPPENING!
Music and chat from throughout a triumphant year at Kscope from
· Steven Wilson

Plus a couple of top tunes from Nordic Giants & Nosound
And … an exclusive snippet from the forthcoming Steven Wilson album.
