Burd Ellen ‘The Hermit’ | Live from Sage Gateshead

Recorded as part of our 2021 Summer Studios

Burd Ellen

Burd Ellen use traditional song to explore and evoke dark landscapes and deep stories. Innovative instrumentation, drone and sound-wash to support detailed vocal work to create a unique sonic atmosphere.

‘The Hermit’ is the next piece to be made public from Burd Ellen’s new album project. Debbie Armour says “I’m a long-time collector and lover of tarot, and I’ve recently become drawn to the idea of finding parallels between interpretation of traditional song and the art of divination. Gayle and I are bringing together a new collection of songs that reflect the ideas, archetypes and imagery of the Major Arcana”.

Check out Burd Ellen’s music video for ‘The Hermit’ which was recorded as part of our 2021 Summer Studios – a free, week-long residency at Sage Gateshead during August for 20 musicians, producers, artists, rappers and singers of all genres to be able to create new work, develop their practice or prepare for a performance.
