20 albums and 25 years into her recording career and only now does Thea Gilmore feel enough of herself to make the self-titled album that renews her vows to music - her first love.The album was released in October 2023 ahead of her visit to The Apex in early 2024.
Entirely written, played and produced by Thea, Thea Gilmore is absolutely the record she wanted to make. In many ways the record she had to make. Sustained by the very public dissection of her personal life laid bare on her last full-length release, the stunningly intimate 'Afterlight', Thea's hard-earned reputation as one of the most distinctive, strident and bold singer songwriters of her generation propels her to reach for new ground and this new release feels like a great leap forward into tomorrow.
Thea Gilmore has made 20 albums since the release of her first, 'Burning Dorothy', in 1998. The veteran of hundreds of festivals, she has sold out shows across the globe. Her music features in Olivia Coleman’s film 'Joyride' (2022), as well as Zack Snyder’s 'Army of the Dead' (2021), 'Blithe Spirit' (2020) starring Judi Dench, and the BAFTA award-winning 'Bait' (2019). Thea has also worked with and won the admiration of cultural icons such as Bruce Springsteen, Martha Wainwright, John Cooper Clarke, Billy Bragg, Steve Earle and Beth Orton.
