‘Cut From A Star’ is the debut album of British singer/ songwriter, multi- instrumentalist and visual artist Ian Skelly.
After drumming in The Coral for over a decade he has now recorded his first solo LP. The music combines influences from the spiritual side of psychedelia and emulates the techniques of 60?s and 70?s recording. This was achieved by using a tascam tape cassette machine, tracked vocals and layered guitars.
The album includes appearances by James Skelly featured playing bass on ‘Cut from A Star’, Paul Duffy and Nick Power feature throughout the whole album contributing bass and keyboard parts. The album also includes Sundowners on backing vocals and guitar and bass for the song ‘I See You’. Lee Southall plays lead guitar on the track ‘Time’. Bob Pickin is on double bass and harmonica for the tracks ‘DNA’ and ‘Cut From A Star’ and Miles Kane is on guitar for the end track ‘It’s Only Love’. All sessions were hands on recorded by Ian Skelly.
