ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Door Too Wide' draws on a broad range of influences, encompassing 70s rock, R&B, burlesque, art rock, blues and classical. The songs are all original compositions, seven by Jules Reed (a.k.a. Julian Wagstaff), three by Walt Cumming, and one by Greg Sanderson, formerly of Edinburgh band Five Day Hemingway. The subject matter ranges from the deeply personal to the highly political, but is always prescient, immediate, considered and aware.

The Firrenes were formed in 2016 by Edinburgh singer-songwriter Jules Reed, who is perhaps better known as the classical and opera composer Julian Wagstaff. Julian’s opera The Turing Test was a sellout hit on the 2007 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and his follow-up opera Breathe Freely was released in 2015 on the prestigious Linn Records label.

The band’s lineup features Jules Reed on lead guitar and vocals, Walt Cumming on bass guitar and vocals, Tony Greenwood on drums and John Richard on keyboard. Walt is a seasoned player originally from Lanarkshire; Tony played professionally as a studio drummer in London for many years, while John is a classically trained pianist, originally from Germany and formerly based in Vienna. The band are joined on this recording, as at many live shows, by Edinburgh-based singer and composer Luci Holland.
