'Red Handed is the first solo album from Gillian Glover and is a
collection of sensitive acoustic songs and blues-influenced numbers.
Gillian Glover is an insightful songwriter with a distinctive and
powerful voice. From the bittersweet and soulful Red Shoes to the
foot-tapping, blues infusion of Holy Communion, this is an album of
exceptional melodies, exquisite string arrangements and rocking, sing-along tracks.
"Red Handed is an album of great playing, interesting lyrics and cool
arrangements. It's a pretty tasty production with nice space floating
around. I see Woody is still on form as well." Glen Matlock, Sex Pistols
Gillian has a highly experienced and talented band including:
Woody Woodmansey, legendary drummer with David Bowie / Spiders From
Mars, Rod Melvin, pianist with Ian Dury, Claus Bøhling, guitarist for
