The New Leaves release debut album, "A Sketch of Home"

Mesmerizing folk combo The New Leaves are new stars of the County Down.

Following the tremendous feedback from lead singles “Donaghaguy Reservoir” and "Country Lane Lament", Corn Crake Records and Cobra Promotions are proud to announce debut album "A Sketch of Home".

The album has been lovingly recorded by the band, produced by Steve Fearnley at Narrow Water Studios, and mastered by Peter Maher. The band have been praised across Irish and UK media, including coverage on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Radio London, SohoRadio, Amazing Radio, Shannonside Northern Sound, Amazing Folk, Today FM and more. The album is a stunning journey of hope, nostalgia, love, nature and connection - all delivered through a delicate and unique folk sound unlike anything in the contemporary Irish or UK folk market.

The New Leaves, like so many contemporary music projects, emerged from the post pandemic wilderness. Consisting of four childhood friends from County Down in Northern Ireland, the band blend lush, three-part harmonies, nature inspired lyrics and modern folk aesthetics to brand them as a new, unique force folk. The four members came together to breathe life into an expanding songbook written by lead vocalist Decky McKay, who attempts to capture the natural beauty, history, and mythology of homelife beneath the Mourne Mountains and the beautiful townlands that surround Carlingford Lough.
