Standing Stones CD Preorder
Steve's first solo album for 10 years. Standing Stones is a collection of personal songs originally 'just-written-for himself'. These are listening songs written to be played as someone might tell a story - late at night by a flickering fire as the cold wind rattles the shutters. Or lying by a lake in August. Or driving along a winding road. There are songs about his mother's evacuation to the Northumberland moors, the passing of an old friend, his love for the overlooked spirit of England, ghosts by a river, a vagabond journey through the Maghreb, the troubled memories of an old general, and a day by the seat is partly a homage to the contemporary folk songwriters who inspired him to start writing and playing many years ago.
