Held by Trees
This title will be released on August 11, 2023. Pre-order now. Additional items added to this order will be held and shipped together. Expected to ship one or two days after release date.
Eventide is a suite of five new compositions that conceptually soundtracks the transition from daylight to darkness. Beginning with ‘Pure Sunlight’, the music moves through ‘The Golden Hour’, ‘The Blue Hour’, ‘Grow Dark’, and finally ‘Nightfall’. Mainly recorded live at Peter Gabriel’s iconic Real World Studios, the music draws on the influence of Van Morrison, John Martyn and of course late Talk Talk and Pink Floyd. Eventide is an EP that naturally follows from Held By Tree’s 2022 debut album Solace.
The core band are the same as its sister release, Solace ~ Live at Real World Studios. Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, Paul McCartney, John Mayer, Talk Talk, Mark Hollis) on lead guitar, Andy Panayi on flute, clarinet, and saxophone (Mark Hollis, Paul McCartney, Ronnie Scott), Laurence Pendrous on piano (Mark Hollis, Anja Garbarek), Paul Beavis on drums (Bill Wyman, Andy Fairweather-Lowe and the Low Riders, The Waterboys), plus project leader David Joseph on guitar and his longtime musical partner James Grant on bass guitar and double bass.
