ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“……this truly incredible new CD…. that, if you close your eyes, will transport you to a place you never thought you could ever travel to.’ Anne Carlini for Exclusive Magazine.com

'A three dimensional acoustic tapestry of layered texture and lyrical wonder.
Ever see a release advertised as "highly anticipated" only to wonder why after the first spin? world music artist Marcus Corbett more than lives up to this lofty billing with a masterful blend of deconstructed Indian music fused with one of the more organic vocal presentations you may hear.
Corbett's sonic journey has taken him from his musical happy place somewhere between Marlborough and Oxford in the U.K. to Pune in India and straight down the western coast of this land rich in harmonic textures left somewhat alone by most artists. A student of Indian Classical Music perhaps the best description would be that this is a "riff".... on the influences from this music that Corbett makes uniquely his. A cultural by product of his own experience, Marcus Corbett is but one of perhaps two artists that I have heard that can take this incredibly intricate art form and place their own artistic voice to command center stage in a unique hybrid of their choosing.'

'A powerful atmosphere to be generated by a guitar, and ….vocal phrasing was fascinating.' Dan Fishman

Still have have a taste for adventure?
‘Corbett’s style is an infusion of UK spirit with an dash of culture from India.…..an album that only those who have been adventurous with their musical voyage will really appreciate. It’s not only music, but the story of Corbett’s musical journey as well. At its core it simply is a love letter to the two forms of music that he’s fine tuned into his style and the ways in which he has fine tuned his voice….. It takes real confidence just to turn left in the middle of holding a key and allowing your voice to find its own way.
It really is something magical when you hear it.

'The merging of his folk and blues style on the acoustic guitar with Indian instruments, like tabla and Bansuri flute is spot on. While I was skeptical at first, the combination is certainly one-of-a-kind and almost transports you to a time and place that never existed, but should have.  Corbett is a fluent guitarist and that alone is enough to hold your attention, however…….
I was pleasantly surprised by Marcus Corbett and his fusion of genres and even continents. Some of the warmest music you could ever hope to hear!'

Marcus started to travel to India in the mid ‘70s and has since spent the following decades continuing to cultivate an ongoing relationship with Tabla and Indian Classical Music. As Corbett puts it – “I traveled first to India as a wide eyed 18 year old and I heard a Tabla solo by the river Ganga. All I can say is my world changed; but it was the vocal that really hooked me – the voice in the music found an echo inside.” These travels continue as the music bears fruit and is published.
On the subject of his musical influences, aside from his times in India, Marcus
states, “I've been affected by John Martyn, Nick Drake,Roy Harper – anybody that makes the guitar sing or speak. John McLaughlin with the 'Mahavishnu Orchestra' and early 'Shakti' was a revelation as has been Jerry Garcia's soulful musicality. Sigur Rós has impressed me with their atmospheric textures.
