Product Description

Product Description

Solo album from acclaimed modernist folkie who works with Emily Barker and Frank Turner. Guests include Adrian Crowley, Chris T-T and Ali Friend (Imagined Village). Gill Sandell's life has turned upside down in the past few years. She has played Wembley Arena and the Olympics Opening Ceremony with Frank Turner; toured Europe, the UK and Australia as multi-instrumentalist in fast rising and hugely praised folk quartet Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo. Gill performed the intense, atmospheric pipe organ chords to open acclaimed BBC drama series The Shadow Line (on the Royal Festival Hall's pipe organ, no less). After a decade of working mainly with other artists (including the iconic Broken Family Band at their peak) Gill is increasingly recognised as a wonderful, intuitive musician in her own right. Hear her at her stunning best on her own dark contemporary folk songwriting.

Review

"This album is an object lesson in the art and craft of songwriting; a shimmering tapestry of sound with a mesmerising beauty, Light The Boats must surely rank amongst the year's best records." --Helen Gregory Folk Radio UK press

"The more you hear the more you discover lurking under the surface. Impeccable folk music for today" --Alan Cackett - Maverick ****

Format: Audio CD
Every few years,if I am lucky,I stumble upon an album of such absolute beauty that it is like unearthing buried treasure.

The latest album by Gill Sandell is one such album.

Beautiful vocals and enchanting music make this album a thing of sheer beauty.

A huge artistic leap forward.There are a raft of talented solo musician/vocalists out there just now but Light The Boats sets the standard for others to follow.

If you buy one more album this year,please make it this one.

By Tim Leese on 29 April 2014
Format: Audio CD
Gill Sandell is something of a hidden gem in the folk scene. Indeed the "folk" tag isn't really adequate as Gill's music transcends that particular genre. This is darker and moodier, as demonstrated by the 6 minute plus "Distance" which just has to be heard.
The album is beautifully written and features fine performances from a very talented group of musicians. Gill's vocals are sublime and the production is top notch. Put on a good set of headphones, dim the lights, pour a glass of red, put this on and simply float away.
Highly recommended.
