Gloucestershire based singer songwriter Casimir Greenfield:
Has released a new single titled ‘Immortals’ ahead of his forthcoming album ‘Boy in the Attic’ due in the autumn.
Cas (as he’s known to his mates) has been recording the album at Ragged Moon Studios in Stroud:
Home to Behind The Scene Gloucestershire favourite Sophronie (who we reviewed when she played at The Prince Albert here), Ragged Moon’s record label will be releasing both the single and album from Casimir.
Cas has had a lifetime in music and recently a tape of archive recordings came to light:
First committed to tape in the mid 1970’s, two of these songs have been re-mastered and augmented with new arrangements and vocals.
In the 1960’s:
Cas began touring constantly throughout Europe, working both solo and with his band. He has supported artists such as Yes, Sparks, and BB King.
He’s not just a musician, you know:
Casimir has also written a book called ‘Slow Poison,’ about a killer who wreaks revenge for a series of traumatic events that took place in the mid 1950s on a Gloucestershire council estate. Hopefully it’s not based on real life. It’s available as an ebook from Amazon here.
The single ‘Immortals’ was released on June 12th:
With a video styled by acclaimed artist Ruben Ireland. According to the press release, ‘It’s a song about hope in these often worrying times with the ultimate message that love is still what makes this amazing planet of ours go round!’
