Bag For Life 03:00


Our 7th studio album was originally released in 2016, but with the benefit of hindsight, we felt that we could significantly improve on the production of the album, and so in late 2019, during the 'Leap of Faith' Project, we roped long-standing sound guru Joel Howe back in to mix and master new renditions of the original tracks. On some of them we went back to the original tracks (stripping out rough sounding bits, fixing bits and adding totally new bits to add texture), and in some cases it was back to the drawing board to just start from scratch with long-established tracks to improve them.

We hope that people enjoy revisiting the tracks as much as we did, and to anyone new to them, you will also get the original versions as bonus tracks as they were as 'demo versions' too so that you can compare them and see how they evolved over the years.

This album comes with a bonus PDF of lyrics and sleeve notes in the form of a 'Listener's Guide' (taken from Scott Doonican's book 'Songs In The Key Of Tarn').
