Admiral Fallow (Louis Abbott, Kevin Brolly, Phil Hague, Sarah Hayes and Joe Rattray) released their much-beloved debut album, Boots Met My Face, in 2011 and its widely acclaimed successor, Tree Bursts In Snow, the following year. Their extraordinary third record, Tiny Rewards, was released in 2015. Heartbreakingly beautiful, sonically audacious and lyrically bewitching, it heralded a true progression in their creative approach.
Over their 13 years together, the band have taken their music around the world, touring the UK, Europe, North America and Australia. They have never been known to rest on their laurels; further career highlights include numerous festival appearances, a commission from Glasgow Film Festival, performing with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and creating an ambitious new chamber opera. Navigate The Blood was co-written with Gareth Williams and Sian Evans and toured eight Scottish distilleries in November 2018.
A group of versatile musicians all uniquely in demand for their skills, the individual band members also find the time to tour and record with renowned artists such as King Creosote, Emma Pollock, Field Music, Kris Drever, Karine Polwart and many others. Admiral Fallow recently put the finishing touches to their much-anticipated fourth record with producer Paul Savage (Mogwai, Arab Strap, Deacon Blue) at the helm. In 2021 they made a triumphant return to the live circuit with a brace of new songs, alongside favourites from their three beautifully diverse albums.
