Product Description

Loner, AKA Geoff Smith, cites his earliest musical influences as Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash - solitary artists who reflect their own stories through lyrical story telling, artists that bring you into their own world – and their reflective style is evident in Western Sci-Fi. For Loner, his songs are a way to 'bring other people into the places I see, the things I need to talk about'. A classical pianist since the age of 8 and tutored in New Orleans piano techniques in his teens, piano understandably makes up the backbone of his work. Yet electronic interference, fuzzy glitches, Binatone samples and some sparkling production underpin the organic qualities of piano and acoustic guitar. This has earned Loner a sound of his own which gently glides beneath the rush of modern life. In his earlier days Loner would work only in solitude, earning him the hermitic title. He has, however, collaborated with a heap of respected musicians and producers. Notably Tim Simenon, the hip hop/dance pioneer behind Bomb The Bass, and acclaimed songstress Dot Allison. The cinematic sound of Loner's songs has led to soundtrack placements for Sex In The City, One Tree Hill and many more.

Format: Audio CD
The Just Music label's march of the ambient and chilled continues with Loner once more taking the role of standard bearer. The first album I would have ranked as "okay", intended to be kept back for dinner parties and other occasions where nice but inobtrusive music is required to fill the breaks in conversation. This one would cause the breaks in conversation as, one by one, the listeners are hooked.
Heartfelt lyrics, truly beautiful melodies and subtle beats - with plenty of variation in tempo to keep you guessing. Comparisons could be drawn to selected tracks from David Gray's White Ladder (Please Forgive Me, for example - though I tend to prefer Loner's ability to keep his vocals on the rails).
If you like some of the more guitar driven and vocal work in the Just Music stable such as Loner and Jon Hopkins' first albums etc. you'll love this.
