Martin Aelred Colgan – Last Boat To St. Helena

Martin Aelred Colgan

Taking centre stage for his iconic new album, Martin Aelred Colgan is a golden asset to the music industry. First introduced to record producer Colin Thurston (David Bowie, Duran Duran) in 1992, Martin and Colin are a pairing that need to go down in history as icons. Back with a transcending new album ‘Last Boat to St. Helena’ has something for everyone within its bones. Bathed in evocative instrumentation from different walks of life, this album demands your full attention. 

Explaining about the conception of lead single ‘Last Boat to St. Helena’, Martin concludes, “Isolation was something I’d never experienced until the evening of March 22 2020 where from my attic studio I could see the search lights of police helicopters over the Glasgow skyline.

Coincidentally I was working on the remix of the last boat to St Helena a tiny island which oddly enough had spent its whole life in isolation so I reckon I wasn’t to be totally alone that first night of lockdown.”
