Leaving My Old Self Behind was recorded entirely live with the Country & Northern band in the Mareel arts centre in Lerwick, in 2013. This has given the songs a fresh, loose and vibrant sound.
The E.P. features four brand new songs, alongside new versions of 'Dirt' and 'We Leave So Many Things Behind', which previously appeared on the Country & Northern album.
The Country & Northern band featured Graham Malcolmson, Victor Sandison and Rory Tallack.
