LOTTE MULLAN+ ROBERT LANE
Q Magazine raved about Lotte Mullan’s self released debut album, christening her indie-folk sound ‘anglicana’. The rest of the music press joined in with the praise and Lotte spent a year on the road touring solo before packing her bags and heading to Nashville to make an album with Band of Horses.
In the meantime a blog she was writing about her adventures as a musician was snapped up for a book and film deal by Elton John’s Rocket Pictures, LOVEFILM used her version of ‘It Must Be Love’ in their ad campaign, and Ridley Scott Productions used four of Lotte’s songs to soundtrack their latest short film ‘Kismet Diner’ which has already had over 2 million hits on Youtube.
Following tours with Scott Matthews, Newton Faulker and Albert Hammond, plus a triumphant headline tour last year, Lotte hits the road again this spring, calling at Birmingham’s Glee Club on Fri 16th May 2014.
