Heartland Soul is Red Velvet’s long-awaited second album*. Red Velvet is singer Deirdre Murphy, songwriter Les Ray and their band of talented multi-instrumentalists from very diverse musical backgrounds: George Harper from jazz/blues, Chris Fox from jazz and folk, Robin Gillan from old time and trad folk, and rock drummer Colin Smith.

This album is also truly genre-defying: while Carrickfergus and Aragon Mill are very much from the Irish folk tradition, revealing Deirdre’s Northern Irish roots, the mariachi/cantina sound of That’s what duos do and the up-tempo honky-tonk of Night Train to Memphis have a more country sensibility, and You put a spell on me strays into jazz/blues.
