A compiled wonderland of passion, adventures and tales of imminent heartache, Skip A Sinking Stone is a peek into multi-instrumentalist Jordan Lee’s soul, all orchestrated with magnificent delicacy.

Madrugada entices with its ethereal piano fantasia, whilst Skipping Stones compacts an outstanding collection of harmonies against an instrumental pandemonium of such impeccable beauty that it requires a double listen to sufficiently digest.

Not For Nothing boasts exemplary violins and captures the vulnerability in Lee’s vocals, which is continued in a more cutting, deep form with City Sirens, where his lyrics loom above every crescendo and weave within every key. Hereafter concludes the album with glimmers of oriental composition and benevolent expressions which perfectly summarise the beauty that inspires every note.
