    Mull Historical Society

    Singer-Songwriter

    Colin MacIntyre – who releases under the pseudonym ‘Mull Historical Society’ – is one of the UK’s most respected songwriters & performers. A multi-instrumentalist, programmer and producer, he is now also an Award-winning novelist, 2016 saw MacIntyre release his seventh MHS album to date: Dear Satellite. 2018 will also see him publish a picture book for children with songs included, and a memoir about growing up on the isle of Mull (read on for more info).  So far he has achieved two Top 20 albums and four Top 40 singles. In 2015 his debut novel, The Letters of Ivor Punch, won the prestigious Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award. It was also longlisted for the Guardian’s ‘Not the Booker Prize‘. Born into a family of writers, MacIntyre’s novel attracted a 4-publisher auction and is published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson/Orion: ‘Hilarious and heartfelt, rowdy and true, ‘The Letters of Ivor Punch’ is a novel about fathers and sons, secrets and lies and how, sometimes, you have to leave home to know what home is.
     

    Some reaction to 2016’s album ‘Dear Satellite’

    “‘Sleepy Hollow’ and ‘This Little Sister’ effortlessly underline MacIntyre’s ear for a pop hook.” Uncut

    “With the big indie-rock of ’Sleepy Hollow’ his journey continues more widescreen than ever.” Q Magazine

    “Colin MacIntyre’s ability to wrap textural complexity and shard-filled lyrics in pop coatings endures. Pop needs more of this.” The Sunday Times

    “The sound of an artist on top form. He really does deserve to go interstellar.” Louder Than War

    And some praise for Colin’s Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award-winning debut novel ‘The Letters of Ivor Punch‘:

    Tragedy and superstition hang over the characters like a mist, and the sea laps against every page. A Beguiling novel.’
    The Independent On Sunday
