Three new recordings to be released in 2017. They are available for listening here, and are collectively called 'A Climate Record' in light of the fact that we are seeing temperature records broken at an alarming rate, faster than most forecasts had anticipated. 

They are not yet available for downloading, but please contact us if you wish to use these songs in the meantime.
 
Leave Them In The Ground (to be officially released later in 2017 with a music video)


A tune inspired by the giant sequoia in Yosemite National Park, California. These largest living entities on earth are awe inspiring, almost spiritual in their energy. Even they eventually make their way back to the earth. This reminded me of the plants buried millions of years ago that gradually turned into coal. In some ways we are digging up the ghosts of the past, ghosts we now know need to remain in the ground.

There is a Bear (to be officially released later in 2017)

 

This is an odd story about a bear, a man and a time machine.

This Changes Everything (This Changes The World)


In 2014 award winning Canadian journalist Naomi Klein wrote an influential book, arguing that ‘Climate change is not an issue, it is a civilizational wake up call … and this changes everything’. Her book, ‘This Changes Everything; Capitalism vs the Climate’, was the inspiration for this new song.
