Ruttlemush is Seamus Ruttledge in a collaboration with producer Axel Grude.
‘Strange’ the new album from Seamus Ruttledge and Ruttlemush came about as an experimental project with producer Axel Grude.
It started with the demoing of new songs, that were already written as poetry; some were being worked on as spoken word pieces.
This developed into a fully-fledged album project, as the new material took shape and we recorded some of the songs like ‘Long Story’, ‘Ancients’, ‘New Time’, and ‘Strange’, the title track of the new album.
Axel Grude then started to listen to older songs, like ‘New Shoes’, ‘All the Blooms’ and ‘Secret Child’ that had already appeared on previous albums released by the Mayo born singer songwriter, Seamus Ruttledge.
As producer Axel reimagined the older work of Ruttledge in a more Soulful and ambient context. This started a process of working with Seamus Ruttledge as poet-songwriter
This new album, ‘Strange‘ was recorded with Axel Grude at Songcraft studio. He has previously mixed the ‘Judas Diary Live’ double Album, and remastered older works from the band. He also has recorded renowned Folk singer and songwriter Mick Brown.
‘Strange’ has been described as an alternative soul record. It is the 4th Album from Mayo-born poet/songwriter Seamus Ruttledge
“Seamus Ruttledge has been as productive as ever during the lockdown. A beautiful new album of Seamus’s soulful songs and singing, recorded and produced by Axel Grude is out now. This is a collaborate work, and the lads have taken the name Ruttlemush for the project, The new album from Seamus Ruttledge aka Ruttlemush is called ‘Strange’. It all sounds good to me.” – (Padraig Stevens)
