Producer – Dave Wah, Eliza Carthy. Tenor Saxophone – Olivia Furness. Neptune ‎(CD, Album).

Eliza Carthy, MBE (born 23 August 1975) is an English folk musician known for both singing and playing fiddle. She is the daughter of English folk musicians singer/guitarist Martin Carthy and singer Norma Waterson. Carthy was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. She went to school at Fyling Hall School in North Yorkshire. At the age of thirteen Carthy formed the Waterdaughters with her mother, aunt (Lal Waterson) and cousin Marry Waterson.

Eliza Carthy should write a book on the art of risk management. She is a woman who refuses to be pigeon holed into any strict musical box and knows how stir up some welcome controversy along the way. Its almost now superfluous to state that she is the daughter of folk royalty since she is in her own right one of the best British musicians treading the boards, working in addition with a dizzying array of the best and brightest including Nick Cave, Billy Bragg, Paul Weller and the Transglobal Underground

You can never accuse Eliza Carthy of taking the easy option. That said, Neptune is a different matter. As with 2008’s Dreams of Breathing Underwater – in which the daughter of folk royalty Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson found room for a little Bavarian oompah music and loungey jazz – this is a self-penned affair that proves she’s much more than just a great interpreter of old standards.

The 10 songs on Neptune apparently reflect the last 10 years of Eliza Carthy's life, as she moves between relationships and confronts the duties of maturity. Accordingly, the drunken wreck of the opening "Blood on My Boots" is replaced, by album's end, by the sad mother of "Thursday", distraught at having to leave her own child to go on the road, as happened to her as an infant.
