My Glass WorldMy Glass World

My Glass World are virtuoso duo Jamie Telford and Dinah Beamish.

Their work – haunting, joyous, wry but always beautiful- is the first collaboration of its kind between them. Born in Border country, it’s a project that blurs boundaries, and marks the point where two wildly different musical animals meet.

Jamie’s song writing is the culmination of a freewheeling career steeped in all forms of music making. He has recorded with The Jam and a host of other bands of different shapes and sizes. He has composed music for advertising, film and theatre – and turned his talents to contemporary classical music. He has trained as an architect, studied music and composition, acted, run his own label, and run his own business. He has also written music for his home town in the Scottish Borders, where he still performs every year with local flute and bagpipe bands – and where My Glass World go to think, drink, write and rehearse.

Cellist Dinah, is a regular performer with the Jools Holland band for the ‘Hootenanny’ NewYears Eve TV Show ,  ‘Later’,  and  is playing in the string section on several of Jools’ albums.

Her busy freelance career has its roots in the classical domain, from playing with the RPO and the Orchestra of St. John’s Smith Sq, to the Birmingham Royal and English National Ballet Companies.  In the lighter side of music she has played in many West End Shows,  and was a director of Electra and Brilliant String groups,  ensembles who feature in the work of many popular artists, from

Zero 7 to the Stereophonics, and from Nick Drake (posthumously) to Peter Gabriel.  Her string arrangements and can be heard on The Veils albums, Runaway found and Sun Gangs. Dinah has also travelled to India to study Raga, transferring them to the ‘cello.

“Together they have made an album that is simply revelatory: an exercise in mature, literate pop music, beautifully sung and played, which deserves to be all over Radio 2 at the very least…”
