Dear friends,

Finn here. This is an incredibly sad message for me to have to write, but I’m sorry to tell you that it seems this is the end of the road for Shorelark. Georgia has decided the time has come for her to move on, and is leaving the duo with immediate effect.

This has come as a massive shock to me and it goes without saying that whilst I respect her decision, I’m very confused and upset about the situation. What comes as a greater disappointment is that I received this news just days before we were due to start recording our debut album. This is something we’d been looking forward to for years and it’s a real shame we’ll never get to share that with you.

On behalf of us both, however, I want to take this opportunity to say a massive and heartfelt thanks to every single person who has helped us in any way, through booking us, engineering sound for us, coming to see us play, buying CDs… We’ve been blown away by your support, and although the situation is obviously out of my control, I can only apologise for any disappointment this news may cause.

Given that I’ve spent so much time preparing to make an album, I’ve decided that next I’m going to do… just that! It’s long been an ambition of mine to make a solo album featuring my own instrumental compositions, and this seems a good chance to immerse myself in a new project. It’ll be out next year. Keep up to date with this and my other work by liking my Facebook page, following me on Twitter & Instagram, and via my website.

I’d also like to wish Georgia every success with her future projects. You can follow her progress by liking her solo Facebook page and be sure to check out her new solo EP. I’ll miss her companionship and musical creativity greatly. She is a dear friend, and I will continue to cherish that.

Once again, eternal thanks for your support. The ever-wise David Grimwood reminded me the other day that everything that happens in life leads you to where you are now. So here’s to the future, and new and exciting things to come.

See you down the road,
Finn x
