ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“It’s beautifully crafted, beautifully played and sublime” - Spencer Leigh, BBC Radio Merseyside

“The wonderfully life affirming melodies and voices of their album Then are something to enjoy in a leisurely manner, with your problems put away wherever they will fit. The virtuoso guitar of Neil Campbell, in a far more relaxed bossa-nova style than his Bulbs shows, shines out next to the honeyed vocals of Perri Alleyne-Hughes as they make music that is perhaps best described as romantic in the most classical way.... There is without doubt a feeling of smoky-voiced soulful happiness-filled evenings to this record and with its merging of jazz, bossa nova and balladic traditions alongside lyrics as sharp and clear as the emotion that produced them this is the perfect evening listen, as life affirming as a blue sky after the rain falls either literally or metaphorically.” - Seba Rashii’s Culture Blog

“[Perri and Neil’s] album Then has its jazz influence out for all to see (and hear). Hard to put in any kind of musical pigeon-hole, their songs put me in mind of all kinds from chilled Ibiza to Cleo Laine to Sinatra at his coolest. Perri’s vocals against the background of Neil’s classical guitar are so made for each other that it’s a bit of a surprise to find out they’ve only been writing and performing together for a couple of years.” - Andrea McGuire,Liverpool Cultural Champions Blog

“‘…By the time the amiable and ever-smiling Campbell arrived on the stage, we were indeed sitting comfortably and eager to discover what all the electronic gadgetry surrounding the guitarist’s chair would do. But first we were introduced to the striking and exotic figure of Perri Alleyne-Hughes, whose wonderful smoky jazz contralto was the perfect vehicle for a set of songs co-written with Campbell. Amid a layered soundscape generated by Campbell’s foot-operated gizmos, Alleyne-Hughes soon emerged as a charismatic performer with a superb sense of pitch and diction….’ (review of concert at the Capstone Theatre on 2nd July 2010)” - Paul Fowles, Classical Guitar Magazine

“The impression conjured by each piece is imprinted on my mind – lazy, hazy Sundays bathed in the warmth of loved ones, the abandonment of falling deeply and completely in love with a kindred spirit and jumping headlong in together, total utter release in the arms of unconditional love, breaking down of fears, doubts and barriers to arrive out of a maelstrom of turbulence to that place in life where everything fits, where it feels right to be intensely yourself, a place which feels like home.” - Chumki Banerjee, Heart and Soul

Based on an original song writing collaboration between vocalist Perri Alleyne-Hughes and guitarist Neil Campbell, Perri and Neil’s music is a very personal music of sensitivity, atmosphere and poise which draws on jazz and classical music in equal measure. Together as a duo for two years the couple have been writing new music and recording an album over the last year which is due for release early in 2012. After playing as a duo they have quite recently been joined by Paul Riley (bass) and Colin Lamont (drums). The four musicians between them bring together a massive array of influences which include jazz, folk, progressive rock, classical music, singer songwriter music and R ‘n’ B. Their aim is to write and perform music which touches the hearts of their listeners.

Perri Alleyne-Hughes is the Musical Director for Sense of Sound Singers leading the choir in collaborations with artists as diverse as Damon Albarn and Paco Pena, and through major competitions on BBC TV and radio. As a vocalist she is perhaps best known for her rendition of 'Abide with me' featured in the classic British horror action movie '28 Days Later'.

Neil Campbell is a Liverpool based composer and classical guitarist. After privately releasing around eight albums of original music for solo guitar, guitar and cello, his band The Neil Campbell Collective (NCC) and others, his most recent work has focused upon large scale music performance projects, including 'Ghost Stories: A Night Opera', 'Neil Campbell's Frankenstein (with the NCC and Sense of Sound Singers)' and 'Inventioning (a new collaborative composition with Jon Anderson from Yes)'.
