Completed by a working party of musicians close to the multi-instrumentalist and spear-headed by co-producer/engineer, Patrick Phillips (Kate Bush, Van Morrison, Goldfrapp, Ludovico Einaudi), the album was recorded using 4 core players, Jeremy Stacey (King Crimson, Noel Gallagher, The Finn Brothers), Theo Travis (Steven Wilson, Soft Machine, Gong), Steve Vantsis (Fish) and Gary Bromham (Bjork, Sheryl Crow, George Michael)
The album’s 8 stunning tracks chart a journey from darkness into enlightenment.

“One of the greatest voices of the era. Not only one of the finest frontmen in modern day progressive music but also a really lovely man. His was a tragic loss.” Jerry Ewing, Editor, Prog Magazine
