ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
START POINT: SEA OF TREASON

Nigel Smith & Andy Taylor;

THE HISTORY:
Finding themselves at school studying for A Levels in Cornwall, these two individuals found salvation, not in the form of regular school life but in the re-birth of music in that most iconic of years ;1977. Less than 18 months later their lives took them on different journeys.
Andy hailed from Bristol, Nigel from Buckinghamshire, yet the desire to make music together burned deep and remained a constant for over thirty years until a reunion sealed their destiny; the music was re-born.
THE REUNION:
Andy could write words drawn from a love of literature and the experiences of life. Nigel had been studying music for five years and had discovered a gift for a melody and instrumentation but no lyrical element. Together these two strands melded into a rich cocktail of styles and sensitivities which are now ready to be heard and appreciated.
THE METHOD:
Initially a system of working was developed by Nigel using a karaoke machine supplied by Andy to record one track demos. Over time improved demos were made using an 8 track recorder until finally, new and improved versions of the songs were crafted by the ‘Doc’ and became ‘Sea Of Treason’ the album.
THE SONGS:
Instead of producing a ‘genre’ album, Nigel & Andy decided to demonstrate a wide variety of styles. Their musical influences are not meant to be intentional or immediately obvious but have seeped into the soul of the recordings and created something fresh but at the same time unique. From the epic ‘Bride Wore Black’ to the short energy burst of ‘One Moment’ or irresistible foot stomper of an opening track ‘Smokin’ Powder, the intention is to surprise the listener with each track and give you something to savour and remember.
THE FUTURE:
This collection of songs is just the beginning of the continuing musical journey that has encompassed Andy & Nigel’s lives for the past three decades. The heartfelt and evocative words fused with rich musical landscapes will hopefully endure and be re-united again on successive releases. This is just the Start Point!
