A few months ago, a good friend of ours in NYC sent us a link to Doug Paisley’s ‘Constant Companion’ LP. The accompanying note read, “I love this and so will you”. She was not wrong.
So we got on the phone to Doug’s manager and his U.S. label, No Quarter, and offered to release the record in Europe. Alas, it was too late. Mojo had a rave review about to run and a MOJO Rising feature to follow shortly after. We couldn’t turn the record around before March so we bailed. As I’m sure you know it’s a tough trick trying to sell a record these days and with those key bits of promo coming out of whack of the release date we played the card of caution, it’s the most beautiful song we heard all year. And the flip is a gem too, and a previously unreleased one at that.

And don’t forget that ‘No One But You’ is taken the LP ‘Constant Companion’. Released on the No Quarter label and distributed in Europe by PIAS.
The Heavenly Emporium
“full of comfort, drawing sweet poetry from real lives, written and sung by a man who seems uninterested in projecting himself — not out of common shyness or a desire to be oh-so-terribly enigmatic, but as a deliberate decision to get out of the way of his songs, which, with a kind of rare purity, speak for themselves.”
“One of 2010’s best singer-songwriter albums”
“Writer Of The Week”
“…a quiet wonder”
