ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beautiful, soulful acoustic songs telling a story of love, hope, faith, grief and longing.

Written and performed by Cole Moreton and David Perry, with Bruce Pont and Phoene Cave. Recorded as live, on location near Beachy Head on the South Coast of England. Produced by Bruce Pont at The Saffron Room.

Inspired by the novel The Light Keeper (Marylebone House) by Cole Moreton, who reads extracts from the story.

The Light Keeper is set in a stunning real-life landscape at the edge of England, where the cliffs are high and the seabirds soar. A young woman called Sarah stands on the brink, arms open wide as if to let the world carry her away. She’s come to be alone, to face the truth about her life and to work out what to do. Her lover Jack is searching, desperate to find her before it is too late. He can't find her anywhere. But Sarah doesn’t want to be found. Not yet. Not by him.

The edge is patrolled by the Guardians, volunteers who offer a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on and a cup of tea. They save lives, approaching the despondents with the words: "Hello mate, are you okay?"

And someone else is seeking answers up here, where the seabirds soar - a man known only as the Keeper, living in an old lighthouse right on the cusp of a four-hundred-foot drop. He has lost the love of his life, an artist whose work still fills the tower, and the memories of her are here. As he looks out to sea and sees a yacht leaning into the wind, the memories flood in and threaten to overwhelm him. He can't leave, but he can hardly bear to stay.

Sometimes, love takes you to the edge ...
