After appearing on ten albums in Australia and Europe, Aminah produced her debut solo album, Blue Wooden Boat. Recorded in Ireland, USA, Australia and Germany, the album features arrangements by Western Australian composer Ash Gibson Greig, as well as a host of internationally renowned musicians, including special guest Tommy Emmanuel, Irish fiddler Steve Wickham (The Waterboys, U2, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello) and Nashville gospel singers, The McCrary Singers (Elvis, Bob Dylan).

Also joining Aminah on this stunning debut are Irish multi-instrumentalist, Seamie O’Dowd (Dervish, Christy Moore, The Chieftains, Máirtín O’Connor Band), double bassist James Blennerhassett (The Rolling Stones, The Chieftains, Steve Earle), percussionist Jim Higgins (Mairtin O’Connor Band, Christy Moore, The Sawdoctors), Swiss cellist Anna Houston (No Crows), Irish jazz pianist, Kieran Quinn (The Odd Couple), Californian dobro player Mike Witcher (Dwight Yoakam, Dolly Parton, Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band), Nashville mandolinist Tim Carter, and the soulful Virginian voices of Anthony Smith and Rudy Faulkner. 

Mixed by Carter in Nashville’s Treehouse Studios, and mastered in Memphis by Euphonic Masters’ Brad Blackwood, both GRAMMY® Award winners, its warm tones sit perfectly with a glass of wine, even better if there’s a fireplace you can settle by.

Blue Wooden Boat will be released on 14th November, 2018. The album is now available for pre-order, below.
