Inspired by the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Slow Club and Bright Eyes, ALL THINGS NEW! is a collaborative project between A Deer For Your Lamb, Alex Ross and the Holy Biscuit. It brings together North East artists to create an alternative Christmas album - celebrating, deconstructing and reinterpreting Christmas music. 

Produced by North East musician and producer Alex Ross, the album brings together a variety of North East musicians. The album will be recorded at The Holy Biscuit in November and feature work by artists such as Meghann Clancy, AURORA, Cath and Phil Tyler, Sacred Harp singers, Rington, The Sons of Encouragement and Skylark Song

The album will be available to download just in time for Christmas and will be launched at a celebratory mini festival at the Holy Biscuit on Sunday 15th December. The album will be available to buy in the form of a download code, accompanied by original screen printed artwork by local printmaker Sarah Ingledew.

The money raised by this campaign will get this project off the ground. It will contribute to recording and production costs of the music and the production of the original screen-printed artwork to accompany the album download code. It will also enable all of the money raised from the sale of the album to go directly to the artists involved helping them to continue their creative practice contributing to the variety of awesome projects going on in the North East.

We've created a blog inspired by the project to gather up different thoughts on the process and have different people contribute reflections and ideas. ALL THINGS NEW! will be available to listen to and purchase online, giving even more people the chance to engage with alternative takes on traditional songs. Be part of it!

The launch party, held at the Holy Biscuit on 15th December, will be a massive Christmas celebration where we welcome people into the gallery for an evening of music, art, food and drink. Each artist/band will perform their song from the EP along with a short set. There will be food available and it will be BYOB. SAVE THE DATE!

Risks and challenges

Working in the arts is always a challenge and this project is risky, but that's why we're doing it. A Deer for Your Lamb, Holy Biscuit and Alex Ross are firmly committed to supporting the production of new music and art in the North East and beyond.

Support for the arts is needed now more than ever and we firmly believe that this project will be strongly supported and will be a chance to celebrate some of the amazing talent that continues to emerge in the region.

We're committed to making sure that all of the rewards will be sent out in time for Christmas, even if that means hand delivering them to you..!
