The Little Kicks first emerged five years ago from Aberdeen. For their third album a relocation was called for, and in the Spring of 2015 the band packed their kit and set off for a lodge by Loch Ness in which they would penned ten songs that would come to make up “Shake Off Your Troubles”. Late night recording sessions in Edinburgh and then mastered at Abbey Road, the album is now ready for release on 3rd March via Loosen Up Records
Lead singer Steven Milne says; “This new album is a collection of songs that means a lot to me and I feel it reflects a massive increase in both my own and the band’s confidence and abilities. There have been ups and downs personally since we last released music but I’m happy to say that on the whole we have grown to be more proud of what we do and to be less reticent to shout about it and our music. The themes of the record would be a feeling of happiness, gratitude and to be thankful with what you have and not take things for granted. Furthermore, not to let others get you down or let anyone put you in your place. In 2017 when the album is released I can’t wait to let people hear it and I hope these sentiments carry through to those who listen to it.”

'Go Get Gone' is the debut album from Worry Dolls - a duo born out of the joint talents of Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones. Recorded in Nashville and produced by Neilson Hubbard , a veteran of East Nashville’s music scene and featuring songwriting collaborations with Jeff Cohen (Teitur), Ben Glover (Gretchen Peters), Joe Doyle (Reba Mcentire) with band Wild Ponies, Eamon McLoughlin (Ashley Monroe), Kenny Hutson (Little Big Town) & more.
Rosie grew up singing and playing a variety of instruments in a music-filled household in Devon whilst Zoe, whose family originate from Liverpool and Ireland, was raised in a small village in Kent by her mum. She inherited music from her parents who, although separated, were both performers which resulted in a childhood spent back and forth between her mum’s theatrical rehearsals and her dad’s club gigs.
Worry Dolls met in Liverpool when they were 18, both on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters, together however they now deliver their debut album, "Go Get Gone' which will be released on 27th January on Vinyl, CD and all digital outlets via Bread & Butter Music
