Song To The Siren

Thomson advert 1986

Vocals Louise Rutkowski

I've just been reading the 'Story of 4AD' book and it mentions how Thomson Holidays wanted to use the Cocteau Twins/This Mortal Coil version of 'Song To The Siren' but the Cocteau's decided against it so it was re-recorded by Louise. The advert is only 40 seconds long and you can view it here or just listen to the music.

Message from Louise:

Hi there

Welcome to the wonderful world of PledgeMusic and to my page.

For those of you who don’t know me, I have worked with 4AD Records as part of the collective, This Mortal Coil, as lead vocalist on the 4AD project The Hope Blister, and vocalist on a one-off album project with Interscope Records under the band name The Kindness of Strangers. I have also self-released an EP of Randy Newman songs.

It’s been a dream of mine to release an album of my own songs and I’ve been working on this with co-writer, Irvin Duguid, for quite some time.

I’m in the home straight now and many of you I know are really looking forward to hearing the album. All the songs are written and recorded and I just need a little help to get me over the finishing line and make this dream a reality – it’s so close, it’s agony!

All you have to do is choose something from the list of exclusive items and experiences, shown here on the right. Your bank account won’t be charged until the target at the top reaches 100%. Whatever you choose from the list you will also receive, free of charge, a digital download of the album as soon as it is released. And if that wasn’t enough, by pledging you will also get exclusive “Pledgers Only” access to the backstage updates section where I will be posting music, artwork and news on the album as it moves towards completion. It really is that simple – if you Pledge or promise to buy the album, or anything else, I can make it!

We are in the final stages of mixing and mastering and for this I’ve chosen to work with Calum Malcolm, who has already completed three tracks. Calum is the man behind The Blue Nile’s recordings and perfect for my music.

A successful campaign will help me finish the album and release it both digitally and on CD in a limited edition format giving me the product I need to get back in the running in the music industry – where a lot of you have kindly told me I should be!

The best thing about Pledge is that it helps others at the same time as realising the dreams of so many talented people. I will be donating 10% of everything pledged once the 100% target is reached to Attitude is Everything, a charity I was involved with at its inception while I was Assistant Music Officer with Arts Council England back in the 90s. It’ll be so good to be involved again and I know first-hand how tirelessly the charity works to improve access to music for deaf and disabled people.

Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to “meeting” you!!

Love, Louise

Ross Campbell Biography

Having enjoyed a varied career as a composer, songwriter and musician, Ross Campbell has emerged over the last few years as one of Scotland’s most sought-after film and television composers. Ross studied composition at the Royal College of Music in London and then, with James MacMillan, at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

Whilst maintaining his interest in writing for the concert hall, Ross went on to pursue a career in commercial music, touring and recording with a variety of jazz and rock acts. A number of his songs have become hit singles, including “Push The Feeling On” for Nightcrawlers, which became Island Records’ biggest-selling 12” single of all time, with sales of 750,000 copies in the USA alone. He was a writer of 'Hotel Room Service' by Pitbull, which was the most performed song in the USA in 2009 and was top 40 in 32 territories.

Ross has been writing for TV and film as well as for theatre companies since the mid-1990s. He provided the music for Wark Clements’ major series, Victorian Scots, made for Channel 4. Drama credits include Scottish Television’s King’s of the Wild Frontier and the BBC’s Rice Paper Stars (dramas commissioned under the “New Found Land” and “Tartan Short” schemes respectively). He has become a favourite of the producers and directors of Scottish Television’s long-running and highly-successful crime drama Taggart -and and has scored all episodes of the 2003 series. His music for episode 52, entitled Death Trap, transmitted in the Summer of 2002, prompting unexpected praise on national radio from BBC Radio 1’s Steve Wright!

In the world of theatre Ross has a particular association with the Borderline Theatre Company, and has provided music for several touring productions. He has composed the music for a large number of short films, including Poor Angels -for which his score was nominated for a BAFTA Award.
