Acclaimed folk ensemble Only Child, led by Scouse songwriter Alan O’Hare, celebrates ten
years of playing gigs and recording music in 2022 with the release of their first ever vinyl

Featuring ten songs remastered for 2022 by Pete Maher (U2), including ‘Scouse’, ‘Accidental
Englishman’, ‘William Ralph Dean’, and ‘North John Street’, the limited edition LP is the first
release on the newly-launched Crosstown Records – from acclaimed Liverpool producer,
engineer and guitarist Jon Lawton – and will be available from October 1st 2022.

‘Bruce’ is the record’s first single and has been described by Americana UK as “a great
example of O’Hare’s fine songcraft and sense of infectious melody”. The song asks who do
you turn to when grief threatens to overwhelm and is a paean to the things that get us
through. “The thing with black feathers? I refuse to let it win,” says O’Hare.
