Coming soon... Rebekkah's Cousin Silas (waag_rel002)

Over on we are all ghosts blog I've just announced our next release... a collaboration between our favourite Cousin and poet & soprano Rebekkah Hilgraves.

I aim to drop the release next Monday... the 7th of May... which, by the way, coincides with our Silas' birthday. Let's make it one he'll remember.

More details to follow.

The Path Between The Trees is now on Bandcamp

The Path Between The Trees is now on Bandcamp... offering lossless downloads like FLAC and a better player.

Enjoy. Tx

The Path Between The Trees featured on John Toolan's Music To Wash Up To

"...During our passage through the album we have encountered many changes in mood, warmth and texture, but there is no sense that these changes have been contrived, and indeed, the journey seems as pure as one may encounter on a personal level."

Some thoughts on The Path Between The Trees from Tom Laird

"...I think it is an excellent release. But there are two sides to Cousin Silas, maybe even a bit of Bipolarity going on somewhere. One one hand is the dark ambient stuff and then on the other it is guitar/keys/soundscape which are cinematic in nature but stunning musicianship on these tracks."

At last! A Ballard-related video!

Whilst a lot of my music has been featured in Ballardian type videos, there hasn't been a directly related one... until now. I feel quite proud to have had my music chosen for an animated version of Ballard's High Rise novel. My special thanks to Mike Bonsall.
Here's the video:

The Path Between The Trees

I'm very happy to announce the release of 'The Path Between The Trees', my latest offering. It's on the new Netlabel We Are All Ghosts, a label set up by my good mate Thomas Mathie. Thomas has done artwork for a few of my previous albums, and this new release, as far as I am concerned, is some of the best he's done.

Judging by the thousands of comments I usually get, it seems I'm talking to myself again, but because my memory isn;t what it was, it's perhaps a good thing because next week I'll look on my blog and realise I've a new release.
