Album Notes
'Gay Demo', recorded in first-takes in a day, is what it says on the tin: personal statements in song, about gay life in all our brave rainbow colours.

Caroline Trettine, a former singer-songwriter with Blue Aeroplanes, achieved cult success with her record 'Be a Devil' in the 1990s, on Billy Bragg's 'Utility' label. She has had an eclectic journey through music. Always open about her sexuality, she has created a work of art that encapsulates her experiences of the lesbian and gay community. Combining Sappho and Lotte Lenya, she's a grown-up artist performing authentic unplugged folk-cabaret. Her imagination visits the rich inner worlds of the LGBT family, trans, lesbian and transvestite, still marginalised in many countries, despite acceptance in the West.

‘Like [Sandy] Denny, Trettine hovers over great melancholy with an almost detached air that only cuts closer to the quick’ **** Martin Aston, Q Magazine
