Reliably informed

Using the changing seasons as metaphors to reflect on life’s phases, ups and downs, Tom Ieuan James takes stock of things, writing earnestly and from the heart on this accomplished folk-themed ballad.

Using nature’s illustrative and intrinsically poetic tones he finds himself riding the tides and winds, describing the passing of time, moving on and looking both at and away from the indelible stamp of memories. Musically he’s accompanied by the emotive and adept cello playing of Natalie Rotterova (Taliraw) and his co-producer Ian Paterson’s (Wingroove Studios) grounding bass. They give James’ own voice and guitar even more gravitas with rounded-out sounds. There’s a level of acceptance here that feels safe and assured; we’re in a place of healing and love.
