Sheear (‘Westward’) is a live studio recording featuring an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary Manx Gaelic songs, arranged in a fresh and imaginative way. It was released in February 2014.

The six panel digipak includes a booklet insert with Manx lyrics, English translations and information about the songs. ‘Sheear’ is also available to buy digitally on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.

The twelve-track album comprises a plethora of different textures, from unaccompanied pieces like Arrane y skeddan (Song of the herring) through to a more unusual soundscape of bowed guitar, prepared piano, shimmering fiddle and eerie double-bass harmonics used in Tree eeasteyryn boghtey (Three poor fishermen).
