‘Wanderer’ is the latest album by Irish folk singer Cara Dillon described as ‘one of the finest vocal stylists in these islands’ (Daily Mirror) with an ’astounding voice” (BBC 6 Music). We have worked with Cara’s record label Charcoal Records for a number of years designing album covers and promotional material such as posters, flyers and advertisements.
‘Wanderer’ is a traditional, in many ways quite retro, folk album with most of the songs very stripped back and intimate. Inspired by examples of vintage cover art of 1970s folk albums we developed a plain and warm look in grey. The simplicity of the design creates an intimate, soft and elegant vibe to reflect the album’s sound.
Upon launch the album entered the official UK Indie Album Breakers Chart at No.1 and a second pressing of the CD was needed within two months from release as the first one had sold out. Cara has also just been nominated in the prestigious category ‘Folk Singer Of The Year’ at the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
