Songs of the Sea

Now available on Bandcamp

Written as a tribute to the artist’s late father, modern folk album Songs of the Sea delicately explores the foundations of what makes us who we are - memory, identity, our bonds with others - and describes with deep sensitivity a journey of letting go the things that we build and would wish to keep.  

 

"A fine ear for a song...lyrical, personal and thoroughly earnest. Songs of the Sea is a moving, sincere album, and one that promises interesting things to come."

Folk Radio UK

 

"A unique work of art...a huge accomplishment in terms of musicality and story-telling; Songs of the Sea is a heartfelt ode to life that will not leave its listeners unmoved"

JPGchief

 

"An amazing debut, full of stunning lyrical deftness...an unadulterated joy to listen to from start to finish."

Songs of the Electric Night EP

Songs of the Electric Night EP

The experimental and darker folk sound of Songs of the Electric Night was released in March 2020. The opening track, Reykjavik, inspired by the artist's travels in Iceland.

Closing track Ghost in the Machine plays with the centuries old questions of human soul, mind and body, and culminates in a rousing finale provided by a makeshift children's choir.
