Dead Can Dance and This Mortal Coil percussionist Peter Ulrich releases new single feat. harpist/singer Erin Hill
On 3rd November 2014, AIS Records and City Canyons Productions release “Dark Daddy,” the new single from The Peter Ulrich Collaboration, a brilliant follow-up to last year’s acclaimed debut album The Painted Caravan, a record described as “an unexpectedly rich and song-filled showcase” by Rolling Stone and “a wonderful piece of work with the depth of a beautiful painting” by Pennyblack Music.
On the vulnerable and enchanting “Dark Daddy,” The Peter Ulrich Collaboration is joined by American singer and harpist Erin Hill, a Billboard chart-topper in her own right who has also worked with artists as diverse as Kanye West and Sinead O’Connor and has fronted a Game of Thrones promo. Erin’s virtuoso vocals and harp are complemented by Peter’s delicate percussion and create a mesmeric, ethereal track, which marks a great return for the Collaboration.
The Painted Caravan was originally a concept developed by Ulrich and Trebor ‘Big T’ Lloyd - the CEO of City Canyons Productions. The Peter Ulrich Collaboration’s original principal contributors were Peter Ulrich, Trebor Lloyd, David Steele, Anne Husick and Sara Wendt (formerly of cult band, Homer Erotic), who are now joined by Erin.
Multi-instrumentalist Peter Ulrich is world-renowned for his drums and percussion work in the iconic Dead Can Dance and This Mortal Coil, plus his acclaimed solo endeavors; his first record Pathways and Dawns was once described as the album the Beatles might have made had they signed to 4AD instead of Capitol.
In 1983, Ulrich became a member of Dead Can Dance who then were signed to 4AD. He played on their eponymous first album, the Garden Of The Arcane Delights EP and albums Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun and Spiritchaser, in addition to playing on both John Peel sessions and virtually all live shows from 1983 to 1990. He also contributed the track “At First and Then” to This Mortal Coil’s “Filigree & Shadow” album, and made percussion contributions to recordings by 4AD label-mates Wolfgang Press and Pieter Nooten (Xymox) and Michael Brook.
Post Dead Can Dance, Ulrich tried his hand at solo albums and released the much-praised Pathways and Dawns in 1999 and Enter The Mysterium in 2005, as well as making contributions to Piano Magic’s 2009 album Ovations and has made recent guest live appearances with Daemonia Nymphe in London.
Erin Hill’s achievements include a #1 album on the Billboard world chart, a 2013 Independent Music Award, and performing live with Enya, Kanye, moby, Cyndi Lauper, a-ha, Levon Helm, Randy Newman, Sinead O'Connor and Jewel. She has performed solo at The Royal Albert Hall, was featured on Martha Wainwright’s self-titled debut album, and is the voice & harp of Tafne in the 2014 Android video game “The Legacy of Barubash." Erin is also known as The Pretty White Girl on Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show.
The Peter Ulrich Collaboration will be releasing its second album Tempus Fugitives in early 2015.
