A tribute to the country
Ian Rushton is an Auckland-based keyboardist and singer/songwriter who releases CDs regularly through his own Black Sands Music label. This latest set of songs comes as a tribute to the country - with the tongue in cheek rugby tribute Paddocks and the title track, which essentially was the catalyst for the project. Rhys Jones, a school friend of Rushton's is the main composer of that track, from there it inspired Ian to think about what he loved around Auckland and NZ. There's a tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary (Edmund) and other overt references (Queen Street). Opening track Travelling South buzzes along in the spirit of Jean Michel Jarre (a huge influence on Rushton's musical palette) and elsewhere you will hear touches of Pink Floyd, particularly the group's later work. If you have liked Rushton's previous, prolific output then you will enjoy plenty from this landing too.
