Dominic Waxing Lyrical + Dancing Mice
We’re delighted to be welcoming back one of Edinburgh’s most ‘individual’ musical artists, who also happens to be one of our absolute faves.
Dominic Waxing Lyrical is Dominic Harris and friends. He released one of our favourite Edinburgh albums of the 90s (eponymous though sometimes thought to be called Simplicity released by Neptunes in 1996, last seen on discogs for £50 and rising) and did many memorable performances throughout that decade . Eighteen years later, his second album Woodland Casual came out on Tenement Records in 2015. Enlisting the help of Tenement Records’ Riley Briggs and George McFall (Aberfeldy, Clean George IV) and Edinburgh drum stalwart Murray Briggs (Aberfeldy, Oi Polloi, Gin Goblins, Moniack etc etc) and Neil Bateman (Badgewearer) the album was well received by UK press (‘a tonic of an album for those who fret that everything sounds the same’ The Scotsman).
Dominic’s third album Rural Tonic was released on 21st April 2017 and features collaborations with Edinburgh classical ensemble Mr McFall’s Chamber as well as his regular host of players (Riley and Murray from the fabulous Aberfeldy).
