The album began last autumn, with an outside recording of, Our Places, on the banks of the River Ely, Cardiff, where the title track was written. It takes us on a journey of my songs, many of which are anchored in the rivers, and landscape of South and West Wales. River of Dreams, was written by Cenarth Falls on the river Teifi last summer, Nant Ddu on the Taff Fawr, Waterfall by the Nedd Fechan, Wild Dog Rose by the Taff.
“Each one of the 9 songs has a resonance and quality that is captivating, and the production by Kevs Ford is excellent.” Jeremy Rees
I must thank the goodwill of my family and friends, and the generosity and talent of producer Kevs Ford, who made it possible for me to record Our Places at Dog Rose Studios. Also to guest musicians Jamie Nemeth-Violin, Ben Steer: mandolin, guitar Kevs Ford: guitar, harmonium A.J Constable percussion.
Any profits from the album after project costs, will be donated to ‘Michael’s Project’ a service for men, run by the mental health charity Cardiff MInd.
