German Record Critics Prize (Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik) 

 This is one I didn't see coming. Though I have known this for a couple of days, today I can announce that my solo album "Where the Spirit Rests" is one of the ten winners of the 2021 "German Record Critics Prize" (Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik). This long running juried prize honors a cross-section of styles and genres and this year the selected records include a Mahler symphony and the live album from the incredible Angel Bat Dawid & Tha Brothahood.

Bandcamp presale & video for new solo album "Where the Spirit Rests" 

Today we launched the pre-sale for my new solo album via Bandcamp. The album will be available via Glitterhouse (Europe) and Drums & Wires (North America). It will be out on June 4th. You can order the LP / CD / download here: https://bit.ly/33tXhp

Here's the video for the album's title track: https://bit.ly/3vMLGOE



The images for the video were generously loaned to me by Robin Mellway. I found his gorgeous super 8 films of the north american west on Youtube. I am very thankful that he allowed me to include his work in the video as I think there is a strong connection between the song and these images.

This was the first song I finished writing for the upcoming solo album - almost exactly a year ago. Alastair McNeill joins me on analog synth and production.
