      Tinkering about somewhere between the earthy and the ethereal, Sweet Billy Pilgrim scrape strings and tap away at laptops trying to make beautiful things with steady hands and empty pockets.

      Their debut album "we just did what happened and no one came", a collection of songs recorded in a warm shed where hope floats and faith taps at the door (sometimes a little too quietly to hear). Mojo magazine awarded it four stars and The Sunday Times called it, ‘a rather special debut’, making the single ‘Stars Spill Out of Cups’ one of their songs of the year.

      Since then, they´ve turned those careful hands to remixing, most notably ´bringing a fierce pop quality´ to David Sylvian´s ´The Heart Knows Better´ for his ´The Good Son vs. the Only Daughter - The Blemish Remixes´ project, and adding drum loops and banjos to Steve Adey´s ´Mississippi´ for a remix EP. Steve Jansen’s ‘Conversation Over’ from the ‘Slope’ album has also benefited / suffered from their meddlings, Tim also contributing vocals and lyrics to the album for the song ‘Sleepyard’.

      With the imminent release of their second album, ‘Twice Born Men’ on Samadhisound label following recent collaborations with folktronica luminary Adem (for BBC Radio 3), Norwegian electronicists Punkt, and successful shows at the Royal Opera House, King’s Place as well as festivals in Spain and Norway, Sweet Billy Pilgrim are building fires to warm their little musical corner while they wait for planning permission to build their ramshackle beach huts on those tiny, storm-bruised plots inside us all. Should it not be granted… they’re prepared to settle for a gazebo.

      Presented as ever in a beautiful digipak featuring exquisite artwork from the wonderful Tactia Dean and designed by Chris Bigg.
