I SEE ISLANDS
Biography
Meet Seamus Joseph O’Donnell. A singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Mallaig on the west coast of Scotland. One of 8 siblings (5 boys, 3 girls), O’Donnell’s musical background emanates from his close family roots.
Although currently based in Tynemouth (“I came here because it was near the sea and reminded me of home again”), O’Donnell moved to Glasgow in 1998 aged seventeen where he formed his first band. 
It wasn’t long after that O’Donnell started playing with Geoff Martyn, who used to play keyboards with Travis when they were called Glass Onion. 
It was in his home studio in Tynemouth where the songs began to take shape for what would go onto form ‘Within A Light Beam’, the forthcoming debut album from I See Islands.

I SEE ISLANDS releases his debut album ‘Within A Light Beam’ via Triassic Tusk on 31st May 2021.

----------
Single Black Olive: Popsike (read psychedelic pop), 60’s and ‘70s film soundtracks, TV theme tunes, and original surf / exotica instrumentals.

Four Newcastle-based musicians with a love of soundtrack music, exotica, popsike, freak-beat and surf. In their world, tunes such as Armando Trovajoli’s L’arcidiavolo (The Devil In Love), or Jaan Pehcehan Ho from the 1965 Bollywood suspense thriller Gumnaam are king. Single Black Olive originals, meanwhile, include Fang Ten, a playful horror fantasy visualising Count Dracula on a surf board, and Bastardo!,  an imaginary B-movie soundtrack for a car-chase around Mexico City.  
"..powering through an intriguing instrumental set that married ’60s surf-rock to Captain Beefheart-inspired eccentricity, via various deep dives into library music, TV and radio themes.." Louder Than War

--------
Stilts Foster: Former steelworker Stilts Foster (born Mark Foster) writes songs of social realism in England’s post industrial towns. Stilts has released two EPs to date, the eponymous ‘Stilts Foster’ (aka the Stickman EP; 2015) and ‘Kiss Kiss Fish Fish’ (2018). Each release documents Stilts’ time in both his native hometown of Scunthorpe and his adopted hometown of North Shields, respectively. Stilts has played Salford's Sounds from the Other City Festival (SFTOC) as well as the prestigious Chorlton Arts Festival. 

Plaintive but impassioned folk that instantly demands your attention” - CRACK

"You seriously owe it to yourself to listen to his stuff if you haven't already! For fans of Bon Iver and Iron & Wine, just don't expect a carbon copy; Stilts has far more balls about him than that!" - Line of Best Fit
