ARBORIST released their debut album Home Burial in November 2016 to critical acclaim. UNCUT 8/10 “A staggering debut of depth and substance", ★★★★ The Guardian "A Man of My Age feels like an instant classic" and ★★★★ Mojo "A deliciously self-assured collection."
They are set to release their follow-up album A Northern View in 2019. It was recorded live in the idyllic surroundings of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Wiltshire (Laura Marling, The Gloaming, Cats Eyes) and is a reflection on what it is to reside at around 55 degrees north on planet Earth. An album of pastoral themes and curious love songs, underpinned by the unique violin playing of Emma Smith (James Yorkston, Noel Gallagher, Jarvis Cocker).
Mark McCambridge played his first show as ARBORIST in 2014 supporting James Yorkston. A solo tour of Ireland followed before impressive performances led to notable support slots alongside Low, Cat Power, Echo and The Bunnymen and Guy Garvey.
