The eighth album by Westruther musician and composer Phamie Gow – entitled Softly Spoken – has got a hot and steamy theme to it.
The record is initially available only in 650 Caffé Nero coffee shops, with those who buy a copy receiving a free hot drink. The record is also to be featured on Classic FM and each day on the chain’s internal radio station.
A spokesman for Gow said: “The title Softly Spoken derives from the meaning of Phamie’s name and the composition Annandale, written when Phamie lived in Moffat, is on the album.”
The album is a collection of old and new material.
Gow added: “I think with the newer compositions, such as Purple Ribbon, you will be able to hear a progression and evolution in my writing.”
Last year Phamie’s composition The Water of Life – Uisge Beatha was performed by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards in the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and seen by more than 100 million worldwide viewers who watched the Tattoo on the BBC.
