A Perfect Christmas Present for you and your loved ones. If you like folk music and love the sea, then Songs of the Sea ‘We all Cast Shadows’ is for you. This E.P was inspired by the talented Artist/Painter and friend, Gillian Lee Smith – Mixed media artist who created an exhibition about the communities of women who were left behind in the time of loss and tragedy. ‘The hope, the isolation, the desire to connect and the haunting melancholic narrative is what first inspired Gillian Lee Smith to reach for her sketchbook and begin…The book ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ by Nathaniel Philbrick is a true story that inspired Melville’s Moby Dick.
This story captured Gillian’s heart and imagination, and she was compelled to visualise the story through her paintings.’
I have written a couple of songs on the EP below ‘We all Cast Shadows’ along with the talented Andrew Weatherhead and beautiful songstress Liz Dykes
Listen to the beautiful poem from John Siddique. Beautiful Choir John Zavos and Sarah Parker and Dawn France. Recorded at Calder Recordings with Piper Dawes.
