Cornish singer-songwriter Joe Francis aka Winter Mountain is releasing his new record I Swear I Flew on November 18th, the first since his critically acclaimed self-titled debut in 2013 which the Sunday Express described as “an utterly fabulous record” (probably before laying into some more migrants for doing something). Written between Ireland, the north coast of Cornwall, and across a stark winter spent in the French Alps, the album features contributions from Seth Lakeman on several tracks. If you want to find out what all the fuss is about for yourself, you can catch him at headline shows which kick off in Worthing next Friday.
