Liam leaves Mostly Autumn

Mostly Autumn at The Komedia in Bath, September 2012

Announcement on the Mostly Autumn website.

Less than a week to the start of the tour and we are all very much looking forward to playing live again. Sadly I have to announce that Liam , due to very personal family circumstances has decided to bow out of Mostly Autumn, we wish him all the best for the future – it’s been a great ride my friend. As this was very much last minute we are delighted to announce that multi instrumentalist and vocalist Chris Johnson has joined the band in his place, Anne Marie, as you know will do all the shows when she is available which happens to be most of the shows this year.

Liam has been an unsung hero of the band for years, never in the spotlight, but making an important contribution to the sound. He will be missed.

On the other hand, it’s good to see confirmation that despite missing a few early gigs due to clashes with the tail end of Panic Room’s tour, Anne-Marie Helder will be back with the band for the majority of this year’s tour.

    Sad to hear that Liam is leaving the band, like Andy a great player who doesn’t hog the limelight but always puts in 100 per cent and a very underrated player. Good luck for the future and it would be great to hear a new album sometime in future.

    On a positive front it will be great to see Chris again a hugely talented writer and musician let’s hope he gets to perform silver glass again, I remember him performing it at York back in 2006 an awesome song

    We did get an acoustic version Silver Glass at Trinity, but with Heather singing lead and Chris adding harmonies.

    When I first heard it , I was convinced that it was Heather singing until reading the album notes. No idea how Chris can sing so high.

    I only knew it was Chris singing lead because I saw them play the song live before I’d heard the record; They didn’t ship the pre-orders for Heart Full of Sky until after the first few dates of the tour.
