Description

Cinematic guitar led music supported by vocals and strings, all in a very calming manner. Very nice!

Like 'Galaxies Like Grains Of Sand' and 'The Honey Bear' with jazz pianist Greg Foat., shortly after which this album was created, the music here is also influenced by Warrens love of walking the countryside and woodlands on the Isle of Wight. It's also influenced by his interest in Catastrophism/ Extinction events and the use of Symbolism employed in the Art, Architecture and Writings used to communicate knowledge of such events to subsequent civilizations. Warrens personal folk musings hint at 60s Psychedelic Folk but with a deeper connection to nature and the part we all play within it, it's impossible not to be drawn into his music and artwork which provokes memories of old children's books, Fairy tales, and the transportive paintings associated with them....
