The next release on Commercially Inviable will be COMIN024, the 4th album from the marvellous James Summerfield, “Two Brothers Leave Home”. The album will be released on 28th January 2013 and will be available as a Digital Download and a Limited Edition CD.
The 12 tracks on the LP were produced by James himself, ably assisted by some Commercially Inviable labelmates. Simon Fox (aka World of Fox) provides backing vocals, guitars and banjo, whilst Anna Russell from Friends of the Stars adds her considerable vocal talents to several tracks.
We think this is James’ best LP to date, and it is already generating a stir amongst the Folk press and at James’ live shows, where fans have been snapping up advance CD copies. The album will be available worldwide from all good digital retailers from 28th January 2013.
In the meantime, you can pre-order the album (or CD) from the Commercially Inviable Bandcamp page. All orders of the CD come with a free download of the digital copy. Those placing pre-orders of the album get to download two tracks, “Nervous Dancer” and “Oliver”, straight away.
If you’d like a taste, James and his partner Suzy (who also plays pianet on the LP), made this video for Nervous Dancer on a recent trip to Japan.

As usual, your efforts in kindly sharing this information around amongst your friends would be greatly appreciated. James is now on Twitter (@jwsummerfield), so I’m sure he’d appreciate your thoughts on the new songs.
Roll up, Roll up, and Roll On, January 28th.
