ACOUSTIC singer-songwriter The Lion And The Wolf will self-release his debut album Symptoms through his Courage And Stone Records on November 24th.
The man behind the music - Isle of Wight's Thomas George - has been touring relentlessly over the past year, including a number of UK festival dates in the summer.
But the album has been a lot longer in the making.
He told RealSoundsOK: "Symptoms is a reflection of the past four years work. The songs have come together at a time in my life where each track tells and integral part of the journey, from playing in front rooms of people's houses to performing on Europe-wide tours."
Keeping to his DIY ethos, Thomas's work in the studio has brought his original bedroom recordings of lo-fi folk songs to life using full instrumentation and warm analogue sounds.
But he has kept a raw sound by recording with no digital plug-ins. You can have a listen to first single Colour to judge the effect for yourselves.
The Lion And The Wolf will be continuing to rattle up the show count for the rest of the year as he tours the UK and Europe.
