Skilful twelve and six string guitar picking, masterful percussion (udu, djembe, talking drum) and intense, soulful singing distinguish this from the usual. Artist's blurb below:
With this recording I rode two horses, the one pulled towards the magical illusion of overdubbing and effects while the other asked for the guitars to be in your face, the singer's breath in your ear. While I rode I gabbed about journeys inner and outer and in-between, couched in the languages I had learned along the way. In hotel rooms with shining simonised surfaces to admire, and luxuriant arm-chairs to relax in, I booked perky live performances, without loops and clever edits, to please you.
