A well-known musician from the Horsham music scene has released his debut album.

Mailman is the solo studio project of Horsham based singer-songwriter and producer Jamie Stanley (aka Stan).

Having recently signed to SJE Records in Australia, Mailman’s debut album, No News Is Good News, received a digital worldwide release on Monday, July 7.

Written over the course of several years and recorded in the last two, the album is an expansive reflection on the fragility of life and love, drawing influences from diverse bands such as Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam and Depeche Mode to name a few.

Stan said: “Recording has always been a labour of love for me, equal parts joyful and infuriating. Which is probably why it takes me so long to finish anything!

“This album reflects that well, I think. I’m very proud of it. I now finally have a full album to my name and a label to release it, so it’s all been worthwhile.

“I’m now immersing myself in the follow up and looking forward to collaborating with my label mates on their projects.

“Life is good!”

Fans of the Horsham music scene will likely recognise Stan as the host of a number of regular events at various local music venues.

Stan is currently in the process of forming a band to do justice to the album live with a view to promoting a physical release next year.

He also regularly performs solo and acoustic around Sussex, London and the South East.
