Wolf Alice’s Joff Oddie has released a debut solo album ‘To Mr Fahey’

The album is in aid of the Trussell Trust, and is complete with folk instrumentals

Wolf Alice’s Joff Oddie has unveiled a special solo album ‘To Mr Fahey’, all in aid of the Trussell Trust

A record of folk instrumentals covering classic standards and original work, the album was recorded in 2019 – a year which saw Joff spending a large amount of time volunteering for the Trussell Trust, an anti-poverty charity that supports a network of more than 1,200 food bank centres across the UK


As a result, ‘To Mr Fahey’ has been released with all profits going directly to the Trussell Trust to help continue their phenomenal work


Speaking about the album, Joff said in a statement:

“The year is 2019 and after 11 brutal years of Tory austerity the country I love has given up on its social obligation to look after its most vulnerable members. An estimated 4 million people now live in poverty, homelessness is up by 168% since 2010 and a broken economic system has meant that over 25% of benefit claimants are actually in work. Naturally this album made up of covers of my favourite folk instrumentalists, will do little to redress these moral injustices. However, faced with a system that no longer cares it is imperative that we all do our bit. For this reason every single penny of profit from this record will be going to the Trussell Trust, a food bank charity, who at present give out over 1.33 million food parcels a year to those in need across the U.K. It is organisations like this, and the kind hearted individuals who make them up, that act as a guiding light to us all in these dark and troubled times.”
