Comedienne harpist Urusla Burns is fresh from a trip to Millbank studios where she recorded a record alongside Mike Mormecha. Titled ‘The Dangerous Harpist‘ and due for release in May this year, we are delighted to unveil the debut single from the record. ‘Comedian’ features a diverse range of instrumentation to produce a truly cinematic sound, along with a stunning video to match, by Michael McNulty.
In her own words:
“Belfast’s most dangerous harpist in the world got lost in upper Ballinderry when she was looking for Lidl. Fortunatly the wind blew her tardis down the snowdrop ridden lane of Michael Mormecha’s Millbank studios. Luckily the fire was lit and 5 days later songwriter Ursula Burns had her fifth solo album in the Cans. Considering he plays everything from the drums to the pan fried corgettes these two make a mighty combination. The only downside to his brilliance is that Burns now has to stop singing “it does not rock” and admit the equation that Mormecha plus harp = it does rock! So in anticipation of the Album due for release in May here is the first single, COMEDIAN.
A rich lifetime spent touring in circus, flee pits, theatres, tardisis, comedy and music venues is reflected in the songs – dark, light, deep and lovely with a handful of dirt in the mix. Who knew Burns and Mormecha would produce this rabbit out of a hat in a one week session. Magic!”
