VALLEY OF BONES

Six musicians, sixteen instruments and three part harmony vocals. Sometimes it's the kind of acoustic stuff you'd find playing at a county fair in Missouri, sometimes it's the sound on the bleachers at a stadium gig in LA, sometimes it's the kind of music you find on your car radio as you drive through the backroads of Mississippi.

Music to rob banks to...

FRIENDLY FIRE

The first single off the 'In the Wood' album and a live favourite.     This was mixed and mastered by Stuart Epps, who produced for Led Zepplin, Elton John and Oasis.     The lyrics (found by randomly opening a book) contain a translation of a poem by the Latin poet Catullus 'Odi et Amo' : I love you and hate you...

IN THE WOOD

This album saw the band with a permanant electric guitarist for the first time in the shape of Canadian blues and country player Sam Grundy-Glynn.     In homage to Sam, whose previous incarnations included a lumberjack, carpenter and luthier (he hand-built his guitar), the CD is printed with a cross-section of Candian spruce.     It also saw forays into more adventurous genres, including Tex-Mex (Camino Real) and our first pure acapella track, Parting Song, written after a friend committed suicide.

TASTING NOTES:   Harmony-drenched, bouzouki-spiced Americana matured in the deep south of London with a rich bouquet of Byrds and Fleetwood Mac and notes of Eagles and The Band - light on the palate with a long mellow finish.
