Limited vinyl (300 copies). Following spellbinding performances at Cambridge Folk Festival and Secret Garden Party Kerry Devine releases her debut album.

Featuring the glorious artwork of Swedish artist Lovisa Axellie - the singer's portrait on the reverse with an illustration of the English Fens (the inspiration for the album) - based on a photo of Devine's - on the front cover.

Inside the sleeve is a two-sided insert/poster featuring a repeat of the cover art, but this time without text; and on the reverse lyrics + more photos, in a chequered layout.

`Away From Mountains' is profoundly inspired by the Fenland landscape and the stillness and history that inhabit the ancient and wild fens in the East of England.

As Devine expands: "When you're there and you're still you can hear so many different sounds, so many different layers, so I wanted to create something that sounded like that, that had the depth and the richness but also very sparse.

This place comforts me, I wanted to create a kind of sound womb that the listener could come into and be comforted too." Recorded live in the stillness of night in a Northamptonshire church the album exudes a haunting quality.
