    'Pixels and Paper' is the most lyrical and musically satisfying work to date from the Merseyside troubadour, Steve Pilgrim, who has backed scores of musicians in Liverpool and beyond over the past decade.

    The album was recorded in Paul Weller’s home studio and was engineered and mixed by Weller’s in-house studio engineer Charles Rees. An integral part of The Modfather’s band live and in the studio, Steve steps out from behind the drumkit to perform acoustic guitar and backing vocals up front with the man himself during gigs as part of an intimate unplugged section.

    Seeing as the album was recorded at Paul Weller’s home studio in Woking, it comes as no surprise that The Modfather himself puts in an appearance. Weller performs backing vocals, electric guitar and Wurlitzer to three songs including the raucous ‘Firecracker’ and live favourite and standout track ‘Explode the Sun’.

    The Coral’s former lead guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones, now a solo artist in his own right contributes electric guitar to two songs, while revered folk guitarist John Smith lends his talents to the reflective ‘Suggested in Rhyme’. Friend and collaborator Rachel Wright accompanies Steve on many of the tracks, her strong, keening voice adding texture to the songs.

    Steve Pilgrim: Acoustic Guitars, Vocals, Percussion - Rachael Wright: Vocals - Ryan Wyatt: Bass, Harmonica and Percussion - Oli Hughes: Drums - Martin Smith: Trumpet - Jez Wing: Piano, Hammond Organ (Tracks 2,6,7) - Bill Ryder-Jones: Electric (Tracks 2,3) - Paul Weller: Electric, Piano, Wurlitzer/Vocal (Tracks 3,4,8) - Shane Beales: Piano, Wurlitzer (Tracks 6,9,10) - John Smith: Finger Picking Acoustic (Track 7) –
