Have a listen to the song “Heaven’s Gate” from my duo with Dawn Landes taken from Desert Songs, the EP we recorded together, out on January 16th.
Ecoutez notre chanson “Heaven’s Gate” que je chante avec Dawn Landes, tiré de notre EP collaboratif, Desert Songs, qui sort le 15 Janvier.
Between takes whilst recording the EP, we found inspiration for the songs we were writing together by walking in the stark and beautiful mountain scenery around my studio in the Cevennes region of the south of France. Chatting as we walked, we swopped tales of desert mystics and seekers that would inspire us to write the songs for our collaborative EP. We wove the arrangements together using my collection of instruments, a Malian Kora, a 1930’s National resonator guitar, West African percussion and an Indian dulcimer and tampura.
Hope you’ll enjoy the record !
