Find The One – OUT NOW!

Find The One is the Coal Porters’ fifth and most accomplished album since they unplugged, forgot about the electricity bill and prepared for global warming by morphing into an entirely acoustic act.

SID025 – The Coal Porters - Find The OneProduced by British folk-rock legend John Wood, the man behind the early classic LPs by Fairport Convention, Nick Drake and later on recording both Squeeze and Beth Orton, Find The One five nice Sid Griffin songs, a trio from Scottish guitarist Neil Robert Herd and the songwriting debut of virtuoso fiddler Carly Frey. Banjo God John Breese chips in with an instrumental and Find The One also announces the entry of world-class harmony singer, ace bassist, and all-around nice guy Tali Trow into the Coal Porters.
