A depraved Caledonian-tinged Neil Young for the Facebook generation, Withered Hand's maverick folk-inflected songs, diamond-sharp lyrics and howling lo-fi style have won hearts at shows across Scotland, the UK and Europe. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and tinkering with guitars since childhood, Withered Hand did not start performing his songs in public until 2006, after the death of a close friend. A Withered Hand show is essentially a solo affair but the line-up occasionally expands to include as many as six musical friends. Withered Hand's acclaimed debut album Good News is set for US release on Absolutely Kosher Records on March 1st 2011. Good News was mixed and mastered in 2010 by Kramer (Galaxie500, Low, Daniel Johnston etc).
