Beyond the Shrouded Horizon - Comment by Steve

My new album Beyond the Shrouded Horizon breaks free from its moorings in early autumn and sets sail through choppy riffs and sudden electric storms to the odd romantic isle...

From Sinbad seas to Startrek oceans of deep sky, it's an odyssey. Invisible cords link pop to pomp, blues to baroque, embracing all genres discovered along the way. Let ethnic guitar forces and power of song take you to where waves crash through de-tuned orchestras over the edge of charted territories.

Eruption: Tommy

On the special edition of my latest album Beyond the Shrouded Horizon is the piece described as 'Tommy' from 'Eruption' which was on the Moving Waves album by Focus. This piece of music was originally called 'Divergence' and was written and played in the early seventies by the Dutch band Solution. They have produced some fascinating music with a wide range.

Four Winds East

My thanks to Peter Green for his inspiration for the twelve bar tune "Four Winds East". Over the years I've acknowledged him as an inspiration and an influence and I enjoyed seeing him play live several times with John Mayal when I was in my teens.
