The Glasgow Cross.

Kevin P. Gilday & The Glasgow Cross is a collaboration between award winning spoken word artist Kevin P. Gilday and multi-instrumentalist Ralph Hector.


Their debut album, Experience Essential, was recorded between 4MH Studios, Clydeside; Green Door Studios, Glasgow and HCTS Studios, Barcelona throughout 2017. It was released on Iffy Folk Records (Glasgow) and Nymphs & Thugs Records (London) in June of 2018.


Marrying contemporary spoken word to an array of post punk, kraut and electronica; the album foregrounds an uncompromising new voice amid dynamic compositions. With a lyrical style alternating between witty wordplay and stark confessionals, the album delves into the crushing absurdity of modern living – at once painfully personal and achingly universal.
