Fresh from supporting fellow Welshman Manic Street Preachers and performing to 35,000 people across the UK as main support and special guest on the Simple Minds acoustic tour, The Anchoress reissues her critically celebrated debut album at a special mid-price.

The Anchoress is the moniker of Welsh multi-instrumentalist Catherine Anne Davies. Her debut album, ‘Confessions of A Romance Novelist’, was first released in 2016 to widespread critical acclaim. The album was named amongst the Guardian critics’ Albums of the Year, won HMV’s Welsh Album of the Year, Best Newcomer at the PROG awards, and a nomination for the Welsh Music Prize.

The genre-hopping, expansive production of ‘Confessions of a Romance Novelist’ draws on influences as far and wide as Prince, Tori Amos, Roxy Music, The Carpenters, and David Bowie.

On the album, Catherine plays a variety of instruments, including piano, guitar, flute, omni-chord, mellotron, wurlitzer, glockenspiel, and celeste, as well as sampling church bells, and an orchestra of typewriters.

Critical praise for the album:

“A devastatingly powerful voice”. MOJO

“A blackly witty break up album...compelling”, The Observer

“Kate Bush’s Hounds Of Love updated for the 21st century” - Prog Magazine

“One of 2016’s most affecting records... a collection of songs that sets a high bar for intense, soul-tearing pop music. 9/10.

” The Line Of Best Fit “...Fascinating.” Sunday Times

“...Karen Carpenter singing John Grant.” UNCUT
