Album Notes
"The Singing Bridge" The new album by composer and guitarist Dave Stephens....
It started with an idea, hearing the unique sounds created by Shaldon Bridge when the wind blows through it, creating notes that Dave took as inspiration for a piece of music he called "The Singing Bridge". The next piece that he composed, (which is the closing track on the album) "Snowfall", was inspired by looking across the river during a snowstorm, something very rare for the area. With that piece finished Dave decided to start work on this new album, conceived as a soundtrack to the river and surrounding area. In addition to these pieces Dave looked back in time to some of the history of the area with such tunes as " Moonlight & Contraband" (referring to the history of smuggling around the area), "Ringmore" (early shipbuilding on the river) and
"(They Sailed To) Newfoundland" celebrating the bravery of the local fishermen who sailed vast distances from their home to fish in those distant waters.
The compositions cover a wide range of influences and styles to reflect the history and scenes of the Teign. From the folk like sounds of the historical past, to the cheerful happy pieces reflecting the river that the modern day visitor sees, to the brooding jazzy atmospheric film score type pieces such as "The Mist That Goes To The Sea", "Sunrise", "The Ness" and of course "The Singing Bridge" itself.
Dave feels that this is a CD that almost anyone could enjoy, with many people remarking on his innate sense of melody in his music. There is something for everyone on this recording.
