The Recollective Debut Album

By The Recollective


The Recollective are a dynamic four-piece band that play a mixture of original and traditional material primarily from Ireland and Scotland but also from other folk traditions. Their debut album will combine songs and tunes from these traditions and weave them amongst their own contemporary styles to create an enchanting vibrant sound.

All accomplished musicians in their own right, The Recollective resonate together and create a whirring wheel of uplifting and euphoric music rooted in tradition. With his warm emotive and sensitive vocals the Scotsman of the band Calum Morrison sets the scene with his repertoire of traditional borrowed and self - penned songs. Karen Hickey creates a rich depth to the music of The Recollective with her powerful yet sensitive prowess on the fiddle.
On the traditional Irish flute, Michael Coult brings his playful interactions and virtuosic energy to the group.
Kieran Leonard one of Ireland's leading young percussionists adds his own rhythmic flair to the band's sound with his delicate touch and grooving style.

Already part-funded by the individuals in the band, we have set our target at €3500. A quick breakdown of our budget is: 

  • Mass production of the album, 1000 copies (est. in excess of €1500).
  • Ensuring it is mixed and mastered to the highest possible standard (est €1000).
  • Various promotional materials i.e album artwork, posters, photography, and website enhancment (est budget, €1000).
  • Anything raised over and above will be used for advertising and marketing, with a special focus on social media platforms.

We have already invested €3000 of our own funds in the album; €2000 on studio and engineering costs with a further €500 on the promotional videos which you can find on our YouTube Channel. €500 has been spent on the early development of our website, which we wish to further invest in, with a particular focus on improved mobile functionality.

Due to the nature of traditional music, it can be difficult to reach a wide audience. We hope that with your help and support, we can share our music and passion far and wide.

We want to thank you all for your continuous support. We have loved hearing your positive feedback to date and are so excited to share our album with you very very soon!! :)
