ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two people from opposing musical worlds join forces to write songs that plunder the past and folk the future. From Irish ballads, opera, and tribal anthems to satirical duets, AVALON travels through time from the world of myth through the apocalyptic present and beyond.

* A couple of people have asked about the CD-RP designation. CD-RP is CD Baby's term for a CD that has been "duplicated" (burned) rather than "replicated" (pressed). These are two manufacturing techniques whose differences are not noticeable to most consumers. Our album is a professionally mastered & duplicated disc that will play in any standard CD player.

Magical new songs from a creative duo
"Avalon" is the debut CD by singer-songwriter duo Michael Judge and Juliet Forshaw, who combine their folk and classical backgrounds to produce 11 captivating original songs ranging from passionate to poignant, upbeat to wistful, haunting to apocalyptic. The melodies are addictive, the evocative poetry grabs the ear, the yearning is so honest it aches. Allusions to legends, demons, angels, magic and Celtic themes run through the album, but these songs evidently spring from heartfelt emotion in life truly lived. The euphoria of love, the relief of baring one's soul to another, the pain of rejection, the struggle to make sense of an intimidating world are all there. As the mythical afterlife of Avalon beckons, human connection and beautiful music can lighten our burdens here and now.

Most of the songs use both singers' voices, which complement each other and blend like a dream as they express a variety of moods. Different facets of love and the thrill of creating music together shine through. The inventive instrumental music includes acoustic guitar, harmonica, recorder, keyboard, banjo and tambourine, all played by the singers and recorded with excellent sound quality. You will wake up in the middle of the night unable to get these songs out of your head.
