ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andrew Sloman “ Epitomizes the talent, craft, and sublime skill of the great British singer songwriter” - Rick Lippit Live Music FM. Having performed on the UK music scene for over 10 years, his songs appearing regularly on national radio, playing festivals to crowds of over 20,000 people and supporting some of the UK’s greatest artists including the legendary “Sting” (Englishman in New York, Fields of Gold, Every Breath You Take), Andrew set his sights on travelling the world to create a new sound for his next album.

Starting in Europe, USA, East Asia and then on to India, Andrew instantly found a strong connection to the atmosphere and music scene of the birthplace of Yoga, Ashrams and the spiritual home of Meditation. Settling in for an extended period of time in the South West Indian state of Goa, Andrew found not only was Goa blessed with some of India’s great musicians but it also attracted some of the top talent from around the world, especially within the World Music genre.

Upon arriving Andrew was quickly performing regularly throughout the state. It was at one of his concerts when he was spotted by Aurelie Chauleur, a tour manager for several renowned musicians in the World Music scene. A few days later Aurelie invited Andrew to a jam session with the master tabla player Niraj Singh from Bihar, a folk Sufi singer from Rajasthan Mukhtiyar Ali, and the world famous guitarist and World Music producer from France Mathias Duplessy.

It was at this session Andrew was totally awe struck by the musical skill and improvisational ability of Duplessy. Andrew would sing and perform his folk compositions while Duplessy accompanied him on guitar, instantly playing the most incredible and harmonious melodies Andrew had ever heard over his music. Duplessy’s guitar work intertwined his vocals and filled the spaces with a unique yet accomplished marriage despite the fact that Duplessy had never heard Andrew’s music before. With a touch and feel that was truly world class Andrew new he was in the company of some very special musicians.

After finishing the jam session Duplessy offered to produce one of Andrew’s songs. He requested Andrew record the vocal and acoustic guitar to a song they had performed together that night entitled LEAVE, and send it to him by email. Andrew delightfully excepted the offer believing that Duplessy was the most talented musician he’d ever had the opportunity to play with. Upon arriving back to his studio in Paris, Duplessy arranged and recorded the accompaniment to LEAVE.

Little did Andrew know that Duplessy was a master of more than 40 other instruments including cellos, violins and an array of string, wind and percussive instruments from around the world.

After receiving the track back from Duplessy, Andrew knew this was exactly the sound he was looking for. It was unique, mature and with a level of musicianship that stood head and shoulders above anything Andrew had previously produced. Duplessy’s choice of instruments, including the Balafon from Africa and the Morin Khuu from Mongolia bought a fresh and exquisite world sound to Andrew’s British folk songs.

Over the next 2 years they recorded 11 songs between Andrew’s home studio on the road and Mathias’ studio in Paris.
