Description
Here are the chosen singles from my debut album - One Wiltshire Winter. It's a sonic novel, or concept album, telling a story from start to finish, and is orchestrated semi-classically for quintet. Set in Wiltshire, the album tells the story of a young man called Corey, who wakes one morning from a dream on Silbury Hill at Avebury. He has no firm recollection as to why he’s there, but knows it’s the result of a drunken night out. Upon reaching the stone circle at Avebury, he meets a witch, who delivers the sobering thought that only he has the power to change his life. She directs him to Stonehenge, via Cherhill White Horse, and Imber (Imber is an abandoned village in the heart of the Salisbury Plain army training ground). Here Corey finds his light, or spirituality. He reaches Stonehenge in time for the Winter Solstice, and after completing the ritual and facing his fear and apprehensions, is given the chance to start again. On the surface the album is a tale of myth and legend, but it’s also a tale of an underlying struggle with alcoholism.
