The sophomore album by singer-songwriter Gerry Norman aka 'Tour Alaska' is done and ready for the world to hear. It follows debut album 'The Guiding Moon'; a minimalist album of finger style guitar, piano, violin and vocals. This was not by choice but with no band and no money there was still a burning desire to continue making music after the break up of A Plastic Rose; the rock band he fronted for well over a decade.

This album is whole new machine with a full band studio production featuring some of the most talented musicians Ireland has to offer including Paul 'Binzer' Brennan (The Frames, Bell X1), Gavin Fox (TURN, Idlewild), John McCullough (Sinead O'Conor, The Waterboys, Van Morrisson), Paul 'Hammy' Hamilton (Foy Vance, Ryan McMullen), Stephen Macartney aka King Cedar and many more.

Recorded during the dark, cold months of lockdown in Hillhouse Studios, Belfast, producer Dean Stevens and Norman worked tirelessly on carving out a new sound for TA with influences from Tom Petty, Ryan Adams and Bob Dylan to The Frames, Fionn Regan and Bon Iver. By the time lockdown had eased it was completed. This album is a product of the pandemic. It was never meant to happen but here we are with something we're so proud of.
