Anna Mieke ' Idle Mind'

‘Idle Mind’ is the debut album of Anna-Mieke Bishop, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Wicklow, Ireland.

Recorded in the far-reaches of west Cork, as well as in Pickering Forest, Kildare, Anna-Mieke accompanies herself on Greek bouzouki, electric guitar and piano, adding cello accompaniment to several tracks in studio. Joining her on this record is long-time collaborator Brían Mac Gloinn (of folk duo Ye Vagabonds) on Indian harmonium, fiddle, additional strings and vocals, and Matthew Jacobson (of contemporary jazz ensemble ReDiviDeR and experimental folk group Clang Sayne) on percussion, adding to the eclectic assortment of sounds that make up Idle Mind. Rooted in folk, the ten tracks on the record philosophise through abstract lyrics about place, age, belonging and various societal misalignments.

“The voice lies at the heart of what it is to be human so just right now, as our lives become a little more virtual, augmented and artificial, Anna Mieke’s songs with their infinity of interlaced traditions and her voice with its alluring melody of intimacy is a wonderful and very welcome gift”

- Philip King, Other Voices

'Idle Mind' is set for independent release on 26th April 2019 on 12” vinyl, CD and digital.
