Dave Mcpherson started working on solo material as early as 2004 during down-time from InMes touring cycle. He has released a long string of independent EPs, all hand made and self released, and has toured extensively playing close to 200 shows annually. His debut album The Hardship Diaries was released in 2011. An unofficial release “Death By Sunset” followed later that year and contained the best of Daves early and unofficial material. As a stark contrast to his debut, this album was much more stripped back and featured just one vocal and guitar track (recorded live) with no orchestration.
A sophomore album (title decided but as of yet unknown) is currently in the recording process and will feature full band arrangements with Dave providing all instrumentation on the album. Known song titles include “Lady Luck”, “Kingdom”, “Snowball” and “Her Majestys Prism”. A release is tentatively scheduled for early 2013.

Petter Carlsen
Beautifully atmospheric, his music has been identified by Anathema as something very special. Indeed, Danny Cavanagh states that ”once I heard Petter Carlsen’s incredible voice and beautiful songwriting, as well as his warm personality, I always felt that he would be connected to and part of the inner circle of Anathema for a long time to come. Quite apart from being a great friend, he is the most talented musician I have ever met in my life.”
