An instantly captivating, all-original acoustic album of great depth and incredible maturity, the debut album (1971) by acoustic guitarist and songwriter, Steve Tilston. As for the making of the album: ''It was Ralph McTell who very kindly contacted Ian Anderson of Village Thing on my behalf,'' Tilston explained. ''I followed it up and secured a meeting with Ian and a gig at the Troubadour Folk Club. I'd met Ralph through Wizz Jones at Les Cousins in Soho, and he'd been very complimentary about my playing and writing.'' One hears echoes of Tilston's mentors and contemporaries in England's vibrant folk scene of the time: Bert Jansch (the fifth track, Train Time, sounds to these ears eerily like early Jansch); John Renbourn; Ralph McTell; Wizz Jones; Davey Graham; and Nick Drake.
Steve Tilston's first CD since last year's retrospective box set and 2005's traditional work "Of Many Hands" is a stunning collection of songs, with some great slide and 12 string guitar playing , supported by musicians of real quality…
'Truth To Tell', the new eagerly awaited solo album from Steve Tilston, represents yet another musical tour de force from one of the UKs most respected songsmiths. Steve's songs have often been suffused with a sense of history. In Truth to Tell he captures and recollects people, places and personal experiences with a vivid clarity…
Steve Tilston is acknowledged as one of the folk music's finest guitarists as well as being an outstanding singer/songwriter. He has been performing and touring regularly worldwide since the mid-1960s and has made a host of critically and publicly-lauded albums during the period. Life By Misadventure was first released in 1987 on the Run River label…
Zero 7 is a downtempo act comprising Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker from the United Kingdom. The band’s songs feature vocals from Mozez, Sia Furler, Tina Dico, Sophie Barker and José González.
On 23rd April 2001 they released their debut album, Simple Things, to wide acclaim. The album featured collaborations with vocalists Mozez, Sia Furler, and Sophie Barker.
On 1st March 2004 they released their second album, When It Falls. In addition to the three vocalists from their first album, it also featured a collaboration with Tina Dico. In the same year, Binns also co-wrote the Emma Bunton track Breathing from her second solo album.
Their third album The Garden was released on 22nd May 2006 and features José González and Sia Furler. It is a departure from the trip-hop sound that defined their first two albums, Simple Things and When It Falls. The Garden has much more of an acoustic rather than electronic flavour to it. The Garden is also notable in that it marks the vocal debut of Henry Binns; and while he doesn’t want the record to be defined by such a fact, it does add another personality to the mix. He duets on PlayThrow It All Away, PlayThis Fine Social Scene and PlayWaiting to Die, and sings solo on PlayYour Place.
However, if there is one fact that Henry and Sam don’t want people to be confused by, it is the title of the album, The Garden. Taken from the album artwork, which is a series of collages designed by a friend of theirs, entitled, spookily enough, The Garden, the duo are keen for the album’s meaning not to get lost in translation.
Fourth album, following 2006's 'The Garden', from the Brit downtempo/chillout duo. Not content to make the same album again, with 'Yeah Ghost' they have turned in a markedly different work brimming with new ideas, from funky uptempo club bouncers, through avant-garde ambient, to indie-influenced, organic-sounding tracks like the free single 'Everything Up (Zizou)'. Features vocals from folkie Martha Tilston and the soulful, throaty Eska Mtungwazi, who has performed with Matthew Herbert.
