"What a Face is For" available on CD

After months of hard work in and out of the studio, Joshua Jarman and I have at last finished our Nick Drake tribute album, What A Face Is For. A seven-track tribute album, it contains various works across and between Nick Drake's albums, varying stylistically from humble acoustic folk to grooving rock to experimental textures.

Joshua Jarman is an ambitious musician whose mastery of percussive guitar adds a unique touch to his work. He and I are both fans on Nick Drake, the eclectic English guitarist/songwriter whose works are simultaneously comforting and haunting. Our mutual interest led us to create a modern tribute, employing both traditional and modern experimental approaches to music paying respects to his work.

You can find it on bandcamp here. Also be sure to check out the music video for Road.
