Troy Donockley to produce new Heather Findlay album

Heather as The Bad Faery

An exciting announcement on Heather’s website.

Troy Donockley of Nightwish, Iona and Bad Shepherds fame will be producing Heather’s long-awaited new album. Recording is planned over the summer, with the words “earthy, widescreen, beautiful, bohemian, magical and mysterious” used to describe how it might sound.


I’m sure it’s not just little Harlan who would love to hear Uilleann pipes on the record.

    Great news, so we should get a new album by the end of 2014, if all goes to plan and hopefully some gigs to support the release.

    Looks like a good year ahead with new releases planned for Mostly Autumn, Panic Room and Heather as well as Anathema and Glenn Hughes new band

  2. Tim Hall says:

    Not forgetting Cloud Atlas, Morpheus Rising and Winter in Eden, all due in the early part of the year.

  3. Ian Almond says:

    Yes, good items ahead for fans of quality music. so much for media claims that the album is dead due to falling sales for some third rate albums from over hyped mainstream acts.

  4. Tim Hall says:

    To be fair, niche scenes like ours and the mass-market mainstream might as well be on completely different planets. It’s not just a matter of scale, the entire ethos is different.

  5. Ian Almond says:

    Of course you are right, however, I can’t remember a time where there has been so much good quality music available and I am currently buying more albums than I have done since the late 70′s early 80′s.

  6. Tim Hall says:

    Same here. And pretty much all of it is completely off the mainstream radar, even when it comes to people like Steven Wilson who can fill The Royal Albert Hall.

    The only artists producing quality music who the “mainstream” have actually heard of are those whose like David Bowie or Kate Bush whose careers began in a very different era. Admittedly both are once-in-a-generation one-off talents but could a present-day equivalent break through to the mainstream now? I doubt it.
