SHORTLIST 2018

Siobhan Wilson
— There Are No Saints

  • Label: Song, by Toad Records
  • Released: 14 July 2017

Written, arranged and performed by Siobhan Wilson (vocals, electric guitar, piano, cello) and recorded by Chris McCrory (Catholic Action) in Bishopton, Renfrewshire, There Are No Saints featured extensively in the UK’s underground music press ‘best of’ lists for 2017 and earned rhapsodic reviews from BBC 6 Music to Rolling Stone. Sparse arrangements of electric guitar, piano and cello lay bare dreamlike vocals and lyrical honesty.
