ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 4th album from the Swindon-based acoustic folk/pop collective features 12 new compositions from singer-songwriter Steve Cox (including 2 co-writes with drummer / percussionist Brendan Hamley and Hertfordshire-based poet Grant Meaby).

Featuring a set built up over the course of the last 2 years sketched out live at the band’s monthly acoustic showcase “Lazy Sunday Afternoon” sessions. Musical styles range from guitar-based rockier tracks Hollow Crown and Doing That Time to gentler acoustic numbers Leaving Imber and Out To Sea highlighting the folkier side of the band’s output.

There is also variety in lyrical themes from contemporary political and social commentary of songs such as Red and Green, and This Channel’s Always to the more personal lyrical concerns of alienation and resilience in Little Light, and Believing. Telling contributions from guest performers such as Canadians David Celia, David Headon and Joan Besen (ex-Prairie Oyster), dovetail with the Swindon contingent of players (including an ex-Duke of Stratosphere) to provide a subtle blend that perfectly showcases a set of mature, crafted memorably melodic folk/pop and rock songs.
