Mad Mackerel Recommends…Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo

Mad Mackerel Recommends...Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo.

Almanac is the third album by Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo band. The album is soon to be given a full nationwide release on 14th November on Emily’s own label, Everyone Sang.

Hailing from Bridgetown, Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving folk-inflected melody and beautiful lyrics. Her talent is perfectly complemented by the elegant arrangements of her band The Red Clay Halo, whose ensemble playing underpins Barker’s agile vocal blend of strength and fragility.

This october Emily will be taking to the road on a headline tour, before joining Frank Turner for a 6 date tour. In advance of the tour a video for new single Billowing Sea has been made, and can be seen below along with a chance to grab a couple of free tracks too, the lovely Ropes and an album bonus track in the shape of a cover of The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face.
