As if the corona chaos wasn't bad enough, cancer has decided to sabotage Davey's
burgeoning musical career. Along with the immunotherapy treatment, it steamrollered Davey and he had to concentrate on staying alive and rationing his energy
expenditure. The last proper gig that we played as a band was at Corinium Museum
in October (sold out) and a string of subsequent shows had to be cancelled.
Davey is coming out on the other side of this disruption and is looking to play again
with some long-standing solo gigs. Solo festival slots are easier for him to handle
than full-blown band shows at the moment.
Things are also coming back to life on the recording front. The 'Cask Strength' mini
album has demos for five of the six tracks sorted and a start has been made on 'proper
album track recordings' for some of the pieces. Also, most of the tracks for the
forthcoming 'Wheel of the Year' concept album have been written and some parts
have been recorded at Beehive Sounds Studio in Cornwall. Rick Connolly will once
again weave his magic and turn the ingredients into a heady brew.

THE RITE OF SPRING IS HERE!
Rather than Let the Corona chaos dominate everything, Davey has been hard at work producing his masterwork 'The Rite of Spring'. Alongside a plethora of musicians the album was recorded across the country in studios, kitchens, offices and garages. A real labor of love that has turned out a superb career defining album for Davey. You can order you copy now from the Store
"I do like this album, it’s a polished production, happily mixing old and new, and you don’t have to be a druid, or a “pagan” or a folkie to enjoy it! Davey writes quite sparse but subtly mesmerising arrangements that are nevertheless able to capture the essence of the seasons as they traverse the earth, the band comprising some very talented musicians using a fascinating mix of electric instruments to weave a contemporary, hypnotic, almost ambient-rock feel."
