In 2019, British guitarist and songwriter Martin Harley has made a change. Having created a deep impression on the acoustic blues roots and Americana scene with his last two Nashville recorded albums, his highly anticipated new record finds a new and exciting sound. An Intimate and gritty analogue album, recorded in a remote chapel deep in the wilds of Pembrokeshire. Taking country blues riffs to the electric bottleneck slide guitar, served with sweet vocal harmonies over the driving rhythms of co-producer and drummer Harry Harding (Yola Carter/William the Conquerer) and award winning Australian bassist Rex Horan. He has recorded and performed with Eric Clapton, Van Morrison and Laura Marling.
Through Harley’s road worn songwriting style this record explores hopes and fears for fast changing times, offering gospel like comfort and consolation. The song ‘Roll with the Punches’ implores the listener not to get dragged down when challenges seem insurmountable. ‘Coming Home’ asks questions beyond the end of life and ruminates on freedom from worldly desires.
