The other day I was wondering what ever happened to Liverpool songstress Candie Payne. Following the release of her impressive debut record I Wish I Could Have Loved You More, things went quiet. It was strange really because both the album and her vocal talents deserved much more notoriety.
It turns out that toward the end 2010 Payne teamed up with The Zutons’ guitarist Paul Molloy for new musical project, The Big House. Their pooled musical experience has created a unique take on folk, roots and alt country, much different to what both made their names for.
No word yet on releases but they recorded a session including ‘Canyon Home in the Sun’ for Dave Monks show on BBC Radio Merseyside a while back. Take a listen below.
