Nemo Shaw’s Debut Album "Stop All The Clocks" - Available Now

Nemo Shaw’s debut album, "Stop all the Clocks," was released on August 24, by indie label, "Revibe.' The collection is an eclectic mix of original songs and fresh adaptations of familiar, and not so familiar, classics. The songs are given a raw, stripped back, acoustic treatment.

London, United Kingdom, September 22, 2013 --( This contemporary-retro type of music will appeal to listeners of all ages who enjoy a laid back, easy listening vibe and soft acoustic melodies. While it is reminiscent of albums from the ‘60’s and early ‘70’s, ‘Stop all the Clocks’ has a distinctly fresh sound and contemporary feel.

Alongside Nemo’s own tracks, such as the magical and delicate ‘Angel Song’, and the catchy ‘Ireland’ tune, (played on ‘BBC’s Introducing’ programme), are a diverse and captivating selection of cover versions - from psychedelic band, Love’s, ‘Orange Skies,’ Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Only Living Boy in New York’ - to a unique production of Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song.’

Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hey, That’s no Way to Say Goodbye’, and Donovan’s little known, ‘To Try for the Sun,’+ are also featured on this quality 12-track album. Reviewing Donovan’s ‘To Try for the Sun,’ Comparative Video 101 blog commented: “One of the best versions of these is that of Nemo Shaw, a young UK musician with a 60’s sensibility who like Leitch himself is a Scot. Shaw’s voice, timbre, and intonation remind me a bit of a young Graham Nash.”

The final track is the haunting ‘Stop all the Clocks Song’ a.k.a ‘Funeral Blues.’ Nemo composed the music to accompany Auden’s poem - made famous in the 1994 film, ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ - transforming it into ‘popular’ song for the very first time.

This is an album with a difference. The artist’s reflective and poetic lyrics, clear gentle voice, sensitive delivery and Scottish accent, all combine to produce a unique and memorable style, setting him apart from other musicians.

‘Stop all the Clocks’ album is available from iTunes
