about

Kate Westbrook’s GRANITE is inspired by her love of Dartmoor and its granite quarries. Her text conjures up the mythical figure of a quarry worker, - labour, love and death in the vast Dartmoor landscape haunted by the absence of the curlew’s cry. Kate’s astonishing vocal range and strikingly original lyrics are matched by Mike Westbrook’s genre-busting score and the outstanding and inventive playing of Kate’s new group THE GRANITE BAND.

Commissioned by Frank Eichler GRANITE was premiered on June 21st in Ashburton, Devon in the Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival.

GRANITE the album, produced by Jay Auborn and Callum Godfroy, was recorded at dBs Studios, Bristol. International distribution is by Proper Music Distribution
