Album for Liz Clarke, Vivienne Neville, Jackie Morris Bates and Mary Kathryn

FOLLOWING the release of the Plankton Records digital single "What A Friend We Have In Jesus" by Britain's Vivienne Neville and Liz Clarke and America's Jackie Morris Bates and Mary Kathryn, an album is now planned. 'What A Friend We Have' album will be released on 8th September. Said Plankton's Keith Dixon, "The album consists of three solo tracks from each of the four artists and the single that features all of them together. Mary Kathryn is a great singer and her music infuses Celtic, pop and world music. . . Jackie Morris Bates has only very recently starting performing again and her music is a classic blend of jazz and country with a dash of Southern gospel thrown in. Liz Clarke, the lady of the crystal clear voice, gave us a great song from one of her earlier EPs and also a beautiful single she wrote after losing her mother which sold really well in Northern Ireland, and a song from her latest Plankton album. Finally, Vivienne gave us two previously unreleased tracks, one of which is a radical reworking of the opening track from the 'Emmanuel' album she did with Liz on Plankton."
