This music is healing. Pure acoustic heaven in fact. But there’s a real depth to each track, a soulfulness and clearly a story behind every note.
These truly masterful group of musicians, all staggeringly gifted and from vastly different musical backgrounds, seem born to play together.
Mark Vickness has created something so special and timely. It’s such a hopeful album, packed with artistry and stirring, deeply personal pieces. “Interconnected” is not only the title of the album but the driving force it seems, the purpose and the reason. What better way to perform songs full of power and whimsy, melancholy and heart than with a real sense of togetherness.
We need art as gorgeous as now, this more the ever. A gathering together of like minded souls, all yearning to be heard and to be a part of our universal healing. Mercifully Mark Vickness, a virtuoso on his guitar, has gifted us these songs, the videos show you the group performing live together in the studio, which is absolutely wonderful.
I love this album! A breath of desperately needed grace and sweetness…with a perfect balance of skill and passion…glorious harmony of guitar, cello, viola, bass and tabla. Brilliant!
