You would have thought that Rugby was famous for little, apart from, er, rugby, but no longer as the Rugby born Adam Scrimshire unleashes his musical wears upon an unsuspecting public! Its been a long journey for this young producer and mutli-instrumentalist, ever since his nan introduced him to an Errol Garner record when he was 14. Scrimshire's sound is steeped in jazz, soul and funk, but with a nod to contemporary sounds, and with strong popular song writing sensibilities. This man knows how to write a tune!! Scrimshire's debut album "Along Came The Devil One Night" is unleashed on May 25th!! Hold tight!!

Press Release :
You would have thought that Rugby was famous for little more than, er, rugby, but no longer!! Egg chasing takes a back seat as Rugby born Adam Scrimshire unveils his debut album on Wah Wah 45s, and what a cracker it is!! It's been a long journey for this young singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist ever since his nan introduced him to an Errol Garner record at the tender age of 14. Scrimshire's sound is steeped in jazz, soul, funk and a little folk, but with a nod to contemporary sounds, and a strong crossover 'pop' edge. Be in no doubt – this boy knows how to write a tune.

Following on from the club orientated singles 'You Will Save Me' and 'Warm Sound' (remixed by Spiritual South and Aaron Jerome respectively), Scrimshire released his third single, 'Certainly' (featuring Norwegian chanteuse Inga-Lill Aker) earlier this year to rave reviews, and now brings you his first full length album, already getting attention from Gilles Peterson and Nick Luscombe.

It's a sometimes melancholic, sometimes uplifting piece, with a very 'English' feel. We think it's safe to say this album couldn't have been made anywhere else!! Check the pastoral 'All Roads Lead You Home' and folky title track for evidence of this. Elsewhere, the afore-mentioned Miss Aker adds soul on 'Warm Sound', Claire Laurent supplies the jazz on 'Springtime', and Rob Hynd the rasping vocals on 'The Low Road' and 'Mistaken', while Wah Wah 45s' Stac cameos on the quite exquisite 'I Have Come To You'.

Upcoming Wah Wah 45s releases :
MAY 4TH :: Various Artists / Underground Hits & Exclusive Bits: 4 CD and digital release
MAY 11TH :: Part Time Heroes / Meanwhile Remixed digital Only EP release
