Farm Hand

I make and perform music using the name 'Farm Hand' and I released my debut album 'International Dreams' in November 2017. I pressed 100 copies on vinyl via Shape Records. Read all about that process on my blog

Farm Hand press

"Music with reverent, almost religious overtones" - WIRE Magazine

“International Dreams” is almost spiritual in its delivery, with drawn out melodies and deep choral harmonies rubbing against bucolic electronics.“ - M Magazine

"With its arcane oddness and warped, subterranean beats, the music of Farm Hand seems very much at ease alone in the dark.” - Gold Flake Paint

“It’s good for you” - 4/5 Buzz Magazine

“super-creative” 8/10 God Is In The TV

“International Dreams feels like an important album” 8/10 Louder Than War

“His droney-church-organ shifts and scapes, together with deeply voiced singing by his silver-coated figure, made for an other-worldly experience.” CCQ Magazine

Thanks to everyone who has sent love & positivity towards the album.

Noctule - A special commission from Peak for the Green Man Festival 2016

Farm Hand collaborated with artist Stefhan Caddick who works in video, installation and performance. The pair created a new, site-specific live performance called Noctule, taking place underground in Eglwys Faen, a cave on the Llangattock Escarpment. The piece responded to the unique acoustics, history and habitat of the cave system.
