Sailmaker is the first solo project of Newcastle-based singer-songwriter Rich Sutton. Rich’s distinctive vocals will be recognizable to those familiar with alt-pop band SHIELDS, whose tracks have featured on BBC, as well as being covered by The Guardian, Q Magazine, and MOJO. Sailmaker represents a stylistic departure from his previous band, producing a unique folk baroque sound with an alt-pop inflection.


Sailmaker’s debut EP is set for release in August 2020. The newest track, “Taste For The Sublime,” is about being thankful for the
simplest things that can bring the most happiness or contentment, such as appreciating nature or a good friendship.
