Album Notes
'He should be immortalised in Stained Glass Glass.' – Venue Magazine

Stanton Delaplane has been performing as a solo artist for 4 years. Based in Bristol, UK, he uses live looped vocals and Euphonium to build up a hypnotic and mesmerising live sound. With his main influences being the likes of Nick Cave and Bon Iver, his songs are based around stories of despair and woe. He performs regularly throughout the country capturing audiences wherever he plays. He has appeared at a number of major festivals including 2000 Trees, Sunrise Celebration and Beautiful Days as well as supporting Gomez, Kris Drever and Simone White. He is played regularly on the BBC as well as a number of internet radio stations. He will embark on a 3 week tour of Germany in November 2010.

Stanton has just released his third EP ‘Butterfly Beard’. Previously released EP’s are ‘Men Dressed As Titans’ and ‘Mandibular Sweetmeats’. musicOMH Unsigned Guide said of the former as having ‘the wit and élan that marks out the best of the current crop of acid folk.’ The latter has been described in The Fly as ‘highly recommended’ and in Blues Matters as ‘fascinating and a superbly produced.’ After listening to’ Butterfly Beard’ BBC Bristol Introducing exclaimed ‘He just keeps getting better!’

In 2008 Stanton collaborated with Henrik Dahle and Nathan @BeneathTheBed to write music for the stage play 'The Last Line'. One of the pieces appears on “Butterfly Beard’ as ‘Requiem’.

To enrich his sound, Stanton performs with a live brass group and Timothy X Atack on Piano and harmonium. He is also about to embark on a project with the composer Richard Barnard involving a live 12 piece choir as well as collaborating to perform sections of the graphic score ‘Treatise’ by the late composer Cornelius Cardew.

‘Stanton Delaplane is a genuinely singular eccentric. With his churchy style stacked harmonies and processed euphonium, he resembles an ascetic strolling madrigal singer yanked out of time from two centuries earlier.’ Venue Magazine review of Invention Studios Gig, Bath.

‘His performance was nothing short of mesmerising. Haunting and Beautiful, he is definitely one to watch.’ Bristol Evening Post review of The Bristol Acoustic Music Festival 2010.
