Helen Boulding Release her new single, 'Breathe' On 19th Nov 2007 which precedes her debut album, New Red Dress.
When your musical CV reads like a rather eclectic Who's Who of rock royalty from the last three decades however, the cat was bound to get out of the bag eventually. As a performer, she's just got back from Europe where she supported Bryan Ferry on tour. As a singer, she guests on the title track from The Orb's new album
'The Dream', which she also co-wrote. Other songwriting collaborations include Simon Tong (The Good, The Bad & The Queen, The Verve), Squeeze's Chris Difford, and Pink Floyd's Rick Wright, the latter of whom was persuaded out retirement by la Boulding for the collaboration. The legend that is Youth stepped in to produce her debut album. And Bryan Adams helped her out by shooting the album cover in his new incarnation as a top photographer. Not bad for a beginner.
Hailing from Sheffield, city of the moment it could be said, Helen didn't even chase for a record deal. Taking the advice of another friend, Imogen Heap, she set up her own label, Maid In Sheffield, and releases her new single 'Breathe' on November 19th 2007. The album, 'New Red Dress', from which the single is taken, follows on Feb 11th 2008, and flags an outstanding new talent.
'House' star Laurie received star number 2,593 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week.
